Shark Tales has noticed a disturbing new trend among e-mail scammers: they’re trying to convince unsuspecting users that they should be attending even more conferences than they already do!

“I would like to personally invite you to the national conference, we hope to see you there,” reads the boilerplate in such spam, followed by a legitimate-looking link and even a legitimate-looking phone number and unsubscribe link. We’re not about to test-drive these links, but even getting snared by a fleet of botnets would be far more exciting than the festivals of fatigue that most conferences turn out to be.
