Encoded message as an effective spam?
Following up on my previous post on spam, it seems that spam has now gone another step and become not just unreadable – foreign language – but also unreadable to the un-computerized eye:

Wow that is nice, I would sure want to buy an IURPQ1…
This is plain silly it is a Base64 encoded message, but why would my reader open it?
There is indication in the email headers that this is Base64 encoded, but I can’t understand what kind of reader will even try to open it as it seems that base64 encode content inside a body is not common practice unless it is part of a multipart message.
Those wondering, the email’s intention is to show you an HTML that sells you fake? real? pills.
