It’s not every day that I get a reply from someone that I’ve emailed back. Mostly because I’m taking the piss or my reply doesn’t help them at all. Some of these spammers are so desperate to get something that they’ll reply to the most pointless emails they get.
Here’s email number 1 from him:
It’s funny. As soon as you get one email about money, another pops up straight away, I don’t how there’s a global economic crisis (excluding China and a couple of other countries) when people are simply begging to give you a share of their money. Following on from the ‘Iraq Money’ spam that I got, not longer than 4 hours after it, I received this delightful bit of spam:
My name is larry Johnson, Director of Inspection here in Atlanta airport Georgia USA. Hi Larry, great to meet you. I’m bowled over and stunned by your wonderful job title
During our investigation i discovered two consignment with your name tagged of them. I imagine that with all of the packages that come and go through an airport on a day to day basis that you don’t have a lot of time for spelling or the use of correct words so I’ll let it slide when you say ‘name tagged of them’
when scanned it revealed an undisclosed sum of money in a Metal Trunk Box weighing approximately 110kg each. The scanner tells you there’s an undisclosed sum of money in there? That’s incredible. Maybe it could tell you how much is in there if it’s able to tell you it’s definitely money and not just paper!
I get countless amounts of spam emails when I’m at work and the majority of them make me laugh. Some of them I like to reply to and I know that this opens me up to more spam email but you can’t put a price on entertaining yourself these days. I think I’ll post up some of my spam emails and replies (if I send one), you know, for a laugh. Here goes today’s brilliant spam…
What a bad start. I’m clearly not your friend as you haven’t emailed me directly and I have no idea who you are. The fact that the email was sent to ‘undisclosed recipients’ leads me to believe you might be a bit of an email slut. But then I suppose calling me friend leads me to think it’s endearing and like you more. Shame you didn’t know I’m a bitter, bitter man.
