Cruise Companies of the World Want My Mum!

It appears that the list that Celebrity Cruises is using has itself gone on a ramble. For the past few months my mother’s email address has been inundated with email advertisements for cruises from a number of firms. The most recent is an organization in Scottsdale, Arizona (go figure!) that calls itself Our Vacation Center. The ESP is ExactTarget.

The website at the domain consists of an image, with no clickable links. The domain used in the From: header,, is not registered at all–the domain does not exist. is registered–to Our Vacation Store, which fortunately has an actual home page. Otherwise I might have mistaken the sender for a scam web site of the sort normally advertised in snowshoe spam.
