The things they invent in spam...

Here's the latest one I got.


Hallo.

I think we had correspondence a long time ago if it was not you I am sorry.
If it was I could not answer you because my Mozilla mail manager was down for a
long time and I could not fix it only with my friend's help I got the emails
address out for me ..:)
I hope it was whom we were corresponded with you are still interested, as I am,
though I realize much time has passed since then...
I really don't know where to start ....
Maybe you could tell me a little about yourself since I lost our early letters,
your appearance,age , hobbies, and are you still in the search?
If it was you I wrote to and you are interested to get to know me better, I have
a profile at :
*************** URL that I deleted *******************
Don't really know what else to say for now I hope this is the right address
Let me know if you are interested, And I hope
you won't run when you see my picture :-)

see you later

Notice how skillfully general and non-specific it is, while aiming to look very personalized.

No, really. How much time do people spend to come up with all that? Well, at least they are paid for it...

Sometimes I get the urge to become a spammer...both to make money and to spread information on my agendas to people I wouldn't normally reach....

Yeah, there would be probably a lot of funny things to do with the methods of spammers.

Indeed. One can't helkp but wonder why spammers haven't thought of that...

Spammers work for profit, I don't think they care about any cause but their bank account.

I don't understand how anyone can profit from some of the spam that's around...like the stuff that doesn't have any links or anything....

Usually, the ones that don't have link have some spyware / inserted virus in it, as I can tell from my anti-virus screening them... But if you check the msgs by webmail, I think they're ineffective.

Except for chain letters that are just meant to propagate email addresses and uselessly loading bandwidth, I reckon.

I do, and it does seem that way.

*nods* It is a nuisance.
