Should I feel insulted my spam thinks it's better than me?


"My warm greetings to you. Do take this email as a contribution to fate. This is not an easy task and that is the main reason why I contacted you after viewing your profile from the internnational directory. Not actually that you are the best with my intellectual grading but I was driven to contact you from the innermost being. And that was my main reason for getting to you. Please do not be offended. I will understand completely if you cannot be of assistance to me. "

I dont know about you - but Nigerian spam has been off the chart this week. But I found this one kinda funny.


  1. Reverse psychology? Trying to get your pride to interfere with your judgment?

    I think the FBI needs to profile all the unemployed psych majors from Nigeria...

  2. That's pretty clever actually.

    "I'll show you! Let me give you my pin #".

  3. Talking about Nigerian scammers... one of them actually made his way down to my previous company, a property broker firm. He was scruffy & dodgy looking so we obviously had doubts about him seriously wanting to buy any apartments at all. My ex-colleague who served him played along nonetheless and after visiting our office twice, he finally revealed his real motive - asked for money in order to get the rest of his funds "released" from Nigeria so that he could complete the purchase of the property. Load of crap. My ex-colleague reported him to the police... arranged for a meeting the next day, and he was arrested in the lobby of our office building. Quite dramatic I must say...

  4. Hey! I haven't seen you in forever. Now I'm gonna have to go over and see how the bunnies are doing.
