[spam] Palmer United Party

“New Year Greetings from the Palmer United Party”
I saw this same email eight (8) times between 10:05PM Saturday and 1:00AM Sunday. The email was always with the subject “New Year Greetings from the Palmer United Party” and sent from ClivePalmer@palmerunitednews.com.au – the email was sent multiple times to two list and my email address; this suggests that our email directories may have been spidered and auto-subscribed to the Palmer Party bulk emailer, which either allows for multiple entries or hiccupped when sending the emails.

This does not appear to be a University of Melbourne only problem

Palmer-Spam

Verdict: I have forwarded the emails to the ACMA’s Spam Intelligence Database (report@submit.spam.acma.gov.au), and then straight to the trash for you!
