Like most casual sex invitations these contain a risk of infection.
The links in the spams frequently contain the following domains:
We are blocking mail from those domains but the emails are actually coming from telco providers
The sender IP of the example on the right is 126.96.36.199 That IP address belongs to AT&T Services, Inc.

AT&T ABUSE REPORTING
Please note that we can only take action on reports that implicate the AT&T network as a source of abuse. As we are unable to take
any action on reports not involving AT&T’s network, we recommend that you send those reports directly to the abuse address of the originating domain or service provider. You can identify the originator by reading the expanded e-mail headers. If you need help with reading headers, visit the following:
For any abuse report involving e-mail, it is essential that the report include the full original expanded headers containing the source IP address and time stamp, along with the complete unedited subject line and message. A report cannot be investigated without this information. Please send one report at a time, as combining multiple reports only detracts from our ability to address abuse issues.
For abuse reports involving security incidents, please include relevant log excerpts of the incident directly in the body of your message. Logs must be in plain text or ASCII format and include the time zone, source IP address, destination IP, timestamps, and port numbers.
For information on spam related issues please visit http://www.att.com/esupport/index.jsp and use the help search box to search for “spam” to locate Spam FAQs for your service type.
AT&T TARGETED SCAMS/PHISHING
AT&T will take appropriate action on any phishing reports that:
1. Appear to be from AT&T
2. Contain websites or services hosted on AT&T’s network
3. Target AT&T customer identity or personal information
For information on how to protect yourself from Internet scams, identity theft, and for the latest information on phishing & counterfeit AT&T Billing notices, refer to the following AT&T eSupport articles:

If you think you have been a victim of potential identity theft, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission offers advice on its web site, which is located at http://www.consumer.gov/idtheft/
For Copyright, Trademark, or DMCA allegations of Infringement,
If your report involves a threat, please take steps to protect yourself and your property by reporting the incident to your local law enforcement agency. We will investigate your complaint and cooperate fully with any requests from law enforcement.
