Spam Email From A Face Recognition Company Called HB Innovation

Here is a spam email, I received this morning, from a South Korean company that my "Junk Email" did not catch.  However, before I deleted, the email actually caught my attention as it was not from China and it was about Face Recognition.  


I thought it was funny they asked me if I wanted the Face-recognition algorithm.  I should respond back...yes, I would like this algorithm.

Subject: If you want to know this Face-recognition algorithm and solutions,

How are you!

My name is Charlie, whose company is in Seoul (South Korea) and we began developing a face-recognition algorithm since 2002.


Most developer considered Face-recognition inferior than other bio identifications like as fingerprint and iris.

But, we succeeded in developing better quality of Face-recognition-algorithm which can recognize twins (brothers or sisters).

Please refer to below and attached files;

In market point of view, this Face-recognition is a blue ocean, which is new, unknown and no-competitive item, we think. 

If you want to know this Face-recognition algorithm and solutions,

Let me know!

I send you all; brochures, demo program and SDK (Software Development Kit) free of charge.

Unfortunately, I have gotten that same email multiple times. Video demo was extremely unimpressive even for spam email standards.
