I am so sick of getting spam in my email for just about any reason you can think of. A few weeks ago I started to keep track of the amount of Nigerian/Misc. African capitol I have won, Australian lottery winnings, and of course how many people have hacked my eBay and Paypal accounts! The numbers are a little shocking. On any given day 50 percent of the mail I receive into my Mozilla Thunderbird is spam. Most of it comes into my Yahoo address which really is only used for eBay now. I wonder who is selling my information then? Hmm… Doesn't take a rocket scientist does it? Isn't it against some law to sell my personal information? Or at least moral law.
So let's see. I have been selected as the person to “front” money for various reasons a total of 79 times in the last 30 days. And if the money was real I would have made a gargantuan 900 Million dollars. If only I had sent my bank account details to these people I would be rich by now, I was considering sending along my social security number to help them with the transaction!
On the Australian lottery I have won just under 64 million, not quite sure if it is American dollars or Australian! I can't believe my fortune winning that much, all I had to do was quickly send them my banking details, my full mailing address, the sort code of my bank, and my preferred method of transfer. Well if it had been my choice they could have sent it by Paypal… then I would get the money! Unfortunately there is are no lottery winnings. The bastards are trying to scam me yet again. Who actually falls for this stuff?
Ohh.. and not to mention the amount of Viagra I get to try for free should keep my ED away for at least 100 years! I think I have either won or been designated to try over 300 samples of Viagra in the last 30 days. Why do these bastards think I need it? How many 19 year olds do you know that need Viagra? Morons should learn about market research.
I have had countless emails telling my that my eBay account has been limited, suspended, canceled, hacked, deleted, stolen, even that my account has been promoted and all they need me to do is sign it with the following link. Oh yeah, sounds really legitimate.. Please sign in so we can make you a silver start power seller when I have an eBay history of only 159, doesn't a power seller need over 1000 sales? Again the morons should have done their market research.
My message to all you out there who send spam to people is this. STOP. You're the ones who look really stupid. You can't do proper market research, you send things that are just obscene and you just waste the time of the people you are trying to scam. Thank god there are programmes like Akismet and weblogs like this which prevent your perverted actions from damaging everyone! Get a life!
