Rick Klau got caught in the middle of someone’s dirty email tricks. The joker covertly set up and then spammed an entire email list, and now Mr. Klau is getting replies from everyone under the sun, including a bunch of angry bankers and accountants. Its unknown as of yet (at least here) what the spam was about, or how many people were actually on the list. As Techdirt pointed out, joe jobs are often done to piss someone off, or get back at someone whom first did the pissing.
I am sure we haven’t heard the end of this.
