It's been a while since I got a spam message that rose to the level of true lameness (maybe because I've improved my anti-spam tools), but this one hit the target.  It's bad enough that the formatting of the first third is truly ugly (scroll to the bottom to see an image), it says someone named Raynan with my email address asked them to send me the message, the text of the newsletter includes the line "want facebook money?", and the links don't even try to look like they're legit.  But the real clincher is that the subject line says it's a newsletter from March, 2008.
