Laser Spine Institute Spam?

A recent survey show that as much as 80% of adult Americans have experienced back problems at some point. If you are one of them you problem know how it can affect your sleep, your working life and all aspects of moving around. It seems spammers are taking advantage of the situation and sending spam for laser spine surgeries.

High on our daily anti spam report today is an offer with the subject field “Receive a complimentary MRI or CT Scan review for your back or neck pain” sent from a company called Laser Spine Institute. The mail was flagged as spam for at least 31.000 SPAMfighters users. The mail is quite simple and holds this nice piece of graphics:

We googled the company “Laser Spine Institute” and there are some stories and opinions claiming the company’s methods are questionable or even a scam. Read for yourself here and here. We are not claiming it is a scam but could however not check the offering since we landed on a survey offering us a free iPhone or iPad for answering a few questions. It might very well be an iPad scam. So the mail is definately not taking you to anything related to the subject.

So we recommend to stay away from this one. Use a spam filter and if you have back problems then see your doctor!
