Love.

Posted on: September 3, 2008

I love spam emails that feature a South African Lottery, Nigerian Long Lost Uncle, interested ‘buyers’ from across the country and my British cousin who just left me a bunch of money! Occasionally, I’ll respond because I’m intrigued at what they do when someone actually bites. Normally, they’re pretty straight forward in what they’re asking of you (credit card numbers, social security, etc) but I just received this one and I’m totally confused as to what Prisca is asking from me? Is she a mail order bride? 

 

Greetings from prisca morris,
 
Itis really obvious that this will come to you as a surprise because we have not met before.but I am Prisca Morris by name and i am 32 years of age from South Africa. I am lady with a pure heart and i am also born again Christian.My aim here is to meet a man that will love me and be my loved, then i will do the same thing to him and i will love him with all my heart .

I am waiting for your reply to my email.Remember Prisca Morris is my name.Waiting for your email.

Scam.

Posted on: August 18, 2008

If I were to ever run some sort of internet scamming business I would spend any available funds on a copywriter and a translator.

I posted a $150,000 special edition Mustang on behalf of a client and this is just one of many money laundering email scams I’ve received. On slow days I reply to their emails and see just how riled up I can get them…does anyone believe these things?

Here is the actual email in response to the listing:

From: faithy cole [faithysmart005@yahoo.com]
