Local Spam / Scam Alert - The following Email was received by several Baja Residents today. At best, it's spam. At worst, it's a scam or Phishing attempt to steal Email addresses and passwords. The web site lists a Los Barriles address, so I suspect it's most likely spam sent to addresses possibly harvested from the Baja Pony Express, the Baja Western Onion and/or La Paz Gringos. It's also possible this is a "Joe Job" where someone is trying to make trouble for the site owner, but I doubt this because the Email was sent through a mail server associated with this site.

As a precaution if you receive this Email, do not click on any of the links. Leave it to the web site(s) and service providers involved to deal with this. If this is spam, then the spammer does not deserve your business if he's marketing in such a deceptive way.
