    So I was checking my email a few days ago, when I was dumb enough to enter my spam folder.

    And waiting for me was the funnies spam message I've ever read.

    I don't remember all the details, but it goes something like this:

    Dear Beloved

    My husband, who was recently killed in the service of his country, was very rich. Also, I have been diagnosed with a fatal illness I would like the money to go to a good cause, so I am leaving the money to you, for you to donate to the charity of your choice. Please give me your name, address and bank account information so I can send the money.

    :lol 

    What are some of your favorite spam emails?

    I don't think it would be appropriate to copy in the subject lines to some of the spam messages in my junk box currently.

    I get to talk to spammers all the time. People with not enough antivirus protection on their computers, they get a virus on the computer, and it starts sending out spam. The fun part, is trying to explain why we're calling.

    "Hi, this is your ISP, and you're sending spam."
    "Do wut now?"

    i love how they act like they are from someone you know yet they are completely vague. I keep getting spam on my work email about my paypal and ebay account but i dont have one of either and it there are never any real specifics included in them so i know they are phishers.

    Ebay:
    I got one of those phishing emails, and the sender sent someone's real username along with it, but had the wrong feedback amount, a difference of about 300, saying they paid me the sum of $500 for two RC cars, and that if I didn't repay them they were going to go to eBay and report me. Yeah, I'm so stupid that I'm going to believe I sold RC cars, when I only sell TFs. Lately it been payday bs like "Here's 1500 dolars right now, just sign up." Or Porn links like "Hey, remember me, we were in the same chatroom last night?" when I don't go into chatrooms

    And
    "I have urgent information about your credit card account. There are currently no problems but unless you give us your info..."

    when i get phished- i know i am not supposed to but i do it anyway- i reply. but i reply with the email i send to the FBI.
    and i make sure they have a nice day.

    i once got phished as i submitted a form to a college. i got 2 emails. one from an administrator, the other from "nobody@college.edu and so i printed it out and gave it to the IT head.
    his response? he threw it away and said delete the email.

    For some reason i get spam saying I have won some amount of money from some british give away or another.


    I also get incest themed spam in very poor english that links to either older man on younger girl websites or older girl with younger man websites the front page of these websites never advertise the incest theme though what a rip-off
