Best spam subject header of the day:

Don’t let ED affect your sex!

Hey, if he even so much as tries, I am so gonna kick his butt.

Best Nigerian Money Scam spam of the month:
Well, this requires a little bit of backstory. I’m sure you’ve seen these before. They go to the tune of “I am Mrs. Mamby Pamby, and my husband, the deposed minister of finance in the Congo, was killed while escaping rebel insurgents…” etc. etc., and of course, you – lucky you! – have been randomly selected to help this person move the deceased’s entire fortune into your bank account. For safe keeping. Of course.

This one, however, the best Nigerian scam e-mail in history, started out: “My husband and I, the deposed minster of finance in the Congo, was killed while escaping…”

Don’t tell it to me, honey. I’ll forward your e-mail to Ghost Hunters or something.

  1. You’re right, that spammer doesn’t know a lick of English. It’s supposed to say: “My husband and I, the deposed ministers of finance in the Congo, were killed while escaping…”

    Sheesh! Will they ever learn?


  2. What’s even worse is that, considering where this was all headed, it may actually be better that linky don’t worky. 😆

  3. Imagine hearing this in the middle of the night:

    “You may have already won 10 million dollars from the Publishers Clearing House!”

  4. No, just imagine that hearty, lusty HAR! HAR! HAR! HAR! in the middle of the night. Now that’s just good old-fashioned nightmare material.
