I was about to just straight up bit bucket this thing but decided to at least take a look since all I saw was the name when I glanced on my phone. I’m glad I did because I needed a good laugh.

Subject: ATTENTION the-minuteman.org OWNER!!!
Hello the-minuteman.org owner,
My name is Amy and I am a private investigator with 20 years of experience. PLEASE READ THIS MESSAGE SERIOUSLY! While browsing the internet just now, I found out there are some people talking BAD about your website the-minuteman.org at a few online forums and Facebook groups. They are creating Bad Reputation about your website the-minuteman.org! They even say the-minuteman.org is a big liar and many people had believed them!
I decided to capture some screen shots of their activities and make it into a FREE report for you.
Please download the report that I made for your website the-minuteman.org here : [link removed for safety]
Your contact form does not allow file upload, so I uploaded it into a free file hosting site called cleanfiles.net, they host files for free so you are required to complete a short survey before downloading your report.
Take a look into this matter RIGHT NOW! Download your report here : [link removed for safety]
P/S: I am just trying to help. If you DON’T CARE about your REPUTATION you can ignore my message.
This mail is sent via contact form on The Minuteman http://www.the-minuteman.org
Obviously you’re not familiar with me or this website. I am well known and take pleasure in the idea that some people hate me. I’m well aware of people writing bad things about me on the internet. I just make sure when I find it I return the favor.
I’m reasonably sure Amy that my reputation with those I actually respect is quite well intact. In the words of Winston Churchill:
You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.
Thanks for confirming I’ve done my job.
TMM is the owner, editor, and principal author at The Minuteman, a competitive shooter, and staff member for Boomershoot. Even in his free time he’s merging his love and knowledge of computers and technology with his love of firearms.
Many know his private name and information however due to the current political climate, many are distancing themselves due to the abandonment of Due Process.
Today I received exactly the same message. I’ve googled the beginning of the message in the email and found your blog. As if we would click on the link!
Though I am tempted this weekend to use wget and a linux VM to inspect that payload and see exactly what kind of malware they’re dishing out.
