Really Entertaining SPAM

So at least the SPAM Emails are getting to be entertaining these days. For some reason, I decided to actually read this one because of the person's name before deleting it and it was truly entertaining. Sounds like someone that we could make a Sunday night TV movie for. Enjoy:

Spam - a new and surprising art form!

Chris said...

Really! I may start reading it if it's all like that!

DesLily said...

somehow.. i don't think the spam for Viagra (and so forth) would quite read as well.. just my opinion mind you...

Bookfool said...

It's surprising how convincing some spam can be, isn't it? I have developed a trick-delete finger in response to spam and sometimes accidentally delete emails I should keep.

Chris said...

No, you're right...the Viagra spam isn't nearly as entertaining deslily :p Someone really put alot of thought into this one!

Chris said...

Bookfool, yes, they do indeed seem to be getting more inventive and creative these days. I was wondering where this would've went if I would've responded to this email. I've deleted emails I should keep many times. Bad habit! In fact, I've accidentally deleted all the stuff that I WANTED to save by checking all the good stuff before and kept the junk...that's really bad!

Stephanie said...

Yeah...I got one the other day that I actually read. It was addressed from Sgt. Major so and so. Something about a trunkful of money that he found in Iraq and needing a way to get it back to the US safely. For just my bank account number to deposit it, he would have split it with me!

That was fun reading! I'm trying to talk my husband into New Orleans for Halloween and Voodoo this year.

Booklogged said...

Very interesting, indeed! Just give me your bank account number....

Chris said...

I've been to Voodoo twice Steph. It's so much fun...One of my favorite festivals down here. It's great! Y'all should come!!!

Booklogged, Isn't it though...I've always wondered if there are people out there who actually fall for this stuff? I bet you there are...you figure they probably send about a million of these things out...at least one probably responds...that poor person :p

Kailana said...

I got almost the exact same email once!

Chris said...

Ha, I think I've gotten similar one's a few times Kailana...just never took the time to read them. I may just have to start glancing over the SPAM before deleting them now. Just what I need...more stuff to read.....

Some of the ones with random combinations of words at the end can be quite hilarious.

Lord help you! When I posted on Lady Rita Mosley's spam letter to me last year during the R.I.P. Challenge I had no idea what I was creating. That post took on a life of its own and I still get comments on it every week from people who find it over the internet. And the comments range from the funny to the downright crazy!

Chris said...

Carl...oh no...what monster have I created :/
