From the WeAreSpammers blog:
This looks like a fake get-rich-quick scam email which is actually intended to distribute malware.
Originating IP is 22.214.171.124 (OVH, Germany). Spamvertised domains are 8mailer.com on 126.96.36.199 (OVH, Germany) and promotesmetasearch.net on 188.8.131.52 (Serverius Holding, Netherlands).
This last one is kind of interesting, because a) it’s all in French and b) it contains a virus. The malware attempts to download an exploit kit from [donotclick]vodkkaredbuuull.chickenkiller.com/trm/requesting/requesting-pass_been_loaded.php
which is kind of unfriendly, hosted on the same IP address.
The WHOIS details show a completely different name and address from the one quoted on the email:
7043 W Avenue A4
Clearly the owner of promotemetasearch.net is up to no good, and I would suggest the Anthony Tomei connection might well be completely bogus.
