I’m pretty sure I had another idea for a post, but I totally forgot what it was so here’s more from the Spamfiles.
I just love this. Jaack with two A’s. It’s more precious than gold.
Lately, I’ve been getting a lot of these offers to go to an online university to get a degree in psychology. Because if you want a psychologist, definitely go for the one who got her degree over the internet.
Sir and madam. Also, I really have no idea what about me would make them think I need plastic, rubber, or metal parts.
Okay, this one came out blurry but it’s really funny. This woman, from Trinidad & Tobago, is in the Ivory Coast (FYI: T&T is in the Caribbean , so she’s a long way from home). She was poisoned (of course) by her step mother (double of course) for her inheritance (the much vaunted triple of course). And for some reason she wants me to contact an “orphan child” named Jonathan Walter so we can both get her millions. This spam really hits all the marks in Scam Bingo.
By the context, I know “prom.” is short for promotion, but I still like to think that it’s a really awesome sun-themed prom.
…What’s an Akshaya Tritiya and why should I want one? Or do I not want to know? I probably don’t want to know.
You should make a scam bingo game. Could be worth millions.ReplyDelete
The Jaack with two As is a classic.ReplyDelete
Because you're a cyborg.ReplyDelete
I get writing spam. I didn't think that was possible, but it's spam and useless.ReplyDelete
I wonder if you get to print your own diploma when you get a degree over the internet….ReplyDelete
My most favorite spam recently was the one from a 5-Star U.S. General who addressed me as, "Hello, Dear."ReplyDelete
Awwww. I didn't know he felt that way about me!
The Trinidad-Ivory Coast gambit really takes the cake!ReplyDelete
I like the scam bingo game idea. No idea how it would work, but it sounds like fun.ReplyDelete
That most amusing thing is that some of these must work or they wouldn't keep trying, right? Or maybe I need a psychology degree to figure that out.ReplyDelete
Got to laugh at some of the spam I get. How come I didn't get the psychology one? :)ReplyDelete
My Dearest One, I know you maybe need plastic and rubber parts...they're even funnier if you combine them.ReplyDelete
