Government might conduct "Peej" stings with spam
I’ve gotten occasional emails that may be attempts to goad me (or any spam recipient) into conversations with minors. One repeated one is a daughter seeking piano lessons (when there are obviously legitimate ways to find real piano or music teachers in one’s own geographical area).
I don’t know if this could be government planting stings of the Dateline-PEEJ kind, but the appearance of such emails is disturbing, and I suppose stings based on spam are possible. I do not open them and mark them as spam, but AOL is not catching them as such automatically.
