From The Spamfiles

It’s been a while. I think. Maybe. Anyway, here it is again!

If Veronica could send email, this is exactly what she would send. Only more desperate.

"We here by today receive this payment". So close to sounding like a real person! Seriously, the first AI to pass the Turing test is going to be a spambot. Just you watch.

There was a period where I was getting at least one of these a day, all with the same message, all with different email addresses. I’m really kind of confused as to what they’re trying to do here. Also, we all know who the real evil bitch is, and it’s the person who ends “You know what” with an exclamation point instead of a question mark.

Ignoring the fact that it says “responde” and the two differing prices…who the hell spends more than eight hundred dollars on a lamp?!?!

How about he take responsibility for his own happiness and not expect a woman to do it for him, hmmm?

Also, I’ve gotten like five spams in the past month all from someone named Melissa. Or Mellissa. Why is every spammer named Melissa all of a sudden?


  1. An eight hundred dollar lamp better turn itself on and off and change its own light bulbs. Since it's spam though, I'm sure it looks like the lamp in A Christmas Story...

  2. Eight hundred bucks for a lamp? Does it tend bar or something?

    I've had Thai spammers lately copying and pasting a comment from another reader in either my post or in other photoblogger posts and left the link for their spam site in the comment. And recently there was a lawyer in Philadelphia who tried the same routine. I did the yelling at a firm clerk routine at his page, said there are plenty of reasons to hate lawyers already, and adding spam to that was just one more reason.

  3. Unless "you know what" is a statement...?

  4. Sheesh! That evil bitch one is a little much... Way to make you feel great all day, right?

  5. I've been getting a lot of "stop sending me your pictures". No $800 lamps, though. I'll have to keep an eye out.
