More spam via Yahoo! Messenger

I've been receiving a message from an ID (chat_software.downloads_rb) that I don't recognize . It's really odd since those messages are sent to an ID that I don't even use to go in chat rooms. Nevertheless I received spam on it.

Here's the message I was sent:
chat_software.downloads_rb: Want to read the conversations your husband, wife and kids are having on Yahoo Instant Messenger and MSN? http://chat-detectives.com

I'll advise you not to visit those websites and to report the ID as spam and if you do visit the websites out of curiosity DO NOT BUY the product they are selling you. You should never buy anything from spammers.

When you visit the url you are redirected to http://chat.samarah.net/? or http://lucinayjuancarlos.com/ or http://darksoulmedia.com/. They seem to use more than one address therefore, the one you are sent to may vary.

I don't know if you'll catch any viruses from their site but I did not get any... Still be careful if your computer is not protected by an antivirus, you never know...

Just be aware that all these utilities that chat-detectives trying to sell are available to download from the internet for free, and you don't have to pay for them at all.
The spammers that behind this Web site simply change the names of some freeware utilities and try to sell them...

3 of these utilities were taken from my own freeware Web site, and the owner of chat-detectives simply changed their names and put them for a sell as a software package.

Thank you for the post. I was looking for info on
chat-detectives.com because this is the 2nd time I am getting an invite from the site. Your blog was the first site which had the info. Thank you. It was very helpful.
