Spammers Need To Be Funnier

Spammers should understand that if the best way into our inbox is by entertaining us. Most spam is just awful: offensive, grammatically dreadful (even allowing for efforts to get around filters) and revealing of the piteous lives the spammers and their drones lead. But if they could only smarten up their act we’d probably let them through. The guy, or guys, with a random “from” address creator get my vote. I just can’t help scouring my junk folder for gems. Here were some I found a few months back. Here are a few more:

Microwaving C. Grammes
Maillol L. Shrews
Lofting C. Amendable
Monomania I. Buxom
Zelma Mooney
Trammelled S. Intercessions
Amateurism G. Causal
Highchairs P. Polyphemus

There is a strange genius at work here.

    “Strictly Confidential

    Attn:
    I know you would be surprised to read from someone relatively unknown to
    you before. My name is Sgt. Mark Hanson, a U.S. Army 1st Armored Division, which was deployed to Iraq in the beginning of the war in Iraq. I would like to share some highly personal classified information about my personal experience and role which I played in the pursuit of my career serving under the U.S 1st Armored which was at the fore-front of the war in Iraq.”

    In this regards, I will not hold back to say that the essence of this message is strictly for mutual benefit of you and I and nothing more.
    I will be vivid and coherent in my next message in this regards, meanwhile, could you send me a mail confirming you have visited the site and that you have understood my intentions? Alternatively, you can send your e-mail response, using e-mail address
    Thanks,

    Best Regards
    SGT. Mark Hanson
