$30! Well, here in Connecticut, that’ll get me a little over six gallons of gas or three packs of cigarettes! Let’s go!

That this is so similar to last week’s indicates that these attachments contain a virus, and the spammer behind it is simply trying to come up with a few different ways to fool people in case one of his methods doesn’t work (??)

Everybody hates Spam—it fills up your Inbox (unless you’ve got G-mail, which does a great job of putting it in an appropriately-labeled folder), clogs your blog (WordPress does a great job filtering, too), and can threaten your computer’s security.

I have to say though, I love my Spam. It cracks me up—it’s poorly spelled, illiterate, and often leaves me wondering who would be dumb enough to click on the link for whatever product/service/lottery winning from mysterious relative in a country you’ve never heard of. So I decided in 2012 I’d go through my Spam each week and pick my favorites to share with the world. I remove the sender and any links that might be damaging (plus, who wants to give them press?).

See you next week! If you get any great Spam, you can post it here, just strip any links and the sender’s e-mail. And be sure to say something in the post to let me know you’re real. Otherwise I might think you’re…well, Spam.

  1. Oh come on, this one is hardly spam – it’s mostly spelled, punctuated, and capitalized correctly and is actually somewhat logical. I’m definately starting to get a sense of the social strata of spammers – penis enhancement pushers = batshit crazy; money laundering scheme pushers = sane but poor English skills; get quick rich schemers = unimaginative virus spreaders. So at least this is educational. See? And you just thought it was fun 🙂
