Update - Spam

Just a follow-up on yesterday's post about the child pornography spam. 
The story in Newsday appeared only in the Queens edition--currently online
at http://www.newsday.com/mainnews/rnmi041r.htm.  Detective Angel Ramirez
of the Manhattan South Vice Squad told Newsday "There's an ongoing
investigation in conjunction with the FBI pertaining to this.  We are
questioning somebody but we have no one in custody."  ("Queens at Heart of
'Net Scam" 10/22/96) 

This afternoon the San Francisco Examiner reported that FBI agents in San
Francisco, New York, and Baltimore are investigating.  (Apparently the
e-mail had been sent to the San Francisco Examiner, too.)


They're working on a follow-up story. 

A rumor linking the spam to a flame-war in rec.pets.dogs.behavior turned
out to be spurious.  A Menlo Park, California man had the same name as was
listed with the address in Jackson Heights.
