For those new to this: I collect spam. Whenever I get a spam message or a spam comment, I copy it and put it up on the Spamfiles because it’s like a letter from a madman and I find it hilarious. Someone once described them as “found art” and I have to admit, that’s pretty accurate.
Take a look at this one, for example.
After Google upgraded its spam filters, I stopped getting crazy anonymous comments that were obviously filtered through a translate program that doesn’t work correctly. I’m not even sure what this one is trying to sell me. First it talks about online gambling, then “Culture is powered by peer tension”, and Battlefield 4 screenshots. Then it finishes with a link about a soccer video game. I can’t even imagine what the original thought behind this was.
I don’t have products on a “trading site”. I don’t have a company, esteemed or otherwise. I don’t have a catalogue. Nope, no idea what’s going on.
I certainly don’t see the business sense in randomly giving away over a million dollars. But maybe the UK branch of Coca Cola does things differently.
This one might be my absolute favorite. Please note the date of this alleged transaction that is netting me forty four dollars: over a month away.
That’s right. Time travel spam.
May God have mercy on our souls.
