Woolrich: Fine Winter Woolens… for a Spamtrap

U.S. woolen manufacturer Woolrich, which has been in operation since the early 1800s, just started sending bulk email advertisements to an email address that never existed at a domain that has not been live for over seven years. The ESP is ExactTarget.

This spamtrap hit could be the result of a typoed subscription that the company did not confirm, or could be part of a purchased list.
