MP3 Spam? Huh?

I like to think I'm on top of email and spam issues, but this one made me do a double take:

The Sound of Spam - article from TechSoup

Apparently, spammers are sending MP3 spam now. They have filenames like "elvis.mp3" but when you open them, you get an audio clip of some pump and dump scam.

I know I'm gonna regret saying this, but this is actually kind of intriguing. Seems like it would be funny to hear a Nigerian spammer's voice. "Hello, I am king blah blah and I send you this mp3 file to request your assistance with large sums of money..."
