Twitter Support Spam Email - Twitter 15-12

Beware - the spambastards are at it again! This time they have spent time to make an email from twitter look like the real thing. The email looks like a message from The Twitter team and has the subject line Twitter 15-12 and appears to come from support@twitter.com.

This delayed messages spam email look like this: 

From:Twitter Support [mailto:support@twitter.com]
Sent: 23 April 2010 06:05
To: bigman@kenkai.com
Subject: Twitter 15-12

The link in the Twitter email sent to me goes to fwsinc.com and then redirects to a viagra website. It may be that is all there is to it, although there may be a trojan that jumps into your machine at the same time, so if you receive a Twitter 15-12 scam email from the Twitter Team - don’t open it- delete it straight away.

If you receive a similar delayed messages email from Twitter, we’d love to hear from you, particularly if the details are different from those above. Have a great weekend!

I have received several of these. They all look very similar except that the number following Twitter in the subject lines is different on each one.
