Fun With Spammers #1

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

So, I get an email from a spammer:

Hello My Friend,
I am Mrs  Jennimar Foraza , From Libya, and Presently, I’m with laptop in a hospital here in Accra Ghana where I have been undergoing treatment for cancer of the Breast. I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only less than (2) two months to live.
It is my last wish to see that this money is invested wisely and at the end of every year funds are distributed among charity organization. I want a reliable and honest person that will use this money to reach to the motherless and also less privileges, to reach to the Katrina Hurricane, the sick that has no body to take care of them, the poor and widows and to set up a Cancer research.Please do all things possible to make my wish come through. Email: (jennimar_foraza@xxxxxxx.xxx)
Hoping to hearing from you soon.
Love you,Mrs Jennimar Foraza

And upon seeing the “Katrina Hurricane” bit…I had to reply:

Hi Jennimar,

I am saddened to hear about your cancer of the breast. I, for one, am a big fan of breasts both large and small. I would be happy to accept your money but saddened that I would be unable to reach out to Hurricane Katrina on your behalf. The reason is that (thankfully) Hurricane Katrina is dead. After her murderous rampage, she succumbed to her fatal collision with the continental United States. The tragedy could have been prevented!

Every year, hundreds of tropical storms and hurricanes around the world die in collisions with land masses. The collisions could be prevented through the deployment of nets and warning signs along the beaches to prevent these beautiful and majestic creatures from meeting an untimely end.

Would you be willing to fund my dream project? To put up bright orange nets around every continent and island so that the hurricanes and tropical storms can roam the skies, protected from dangerous continents. I estimate it would take $400 trillion US to make the HTSPF dream a reality. Your donation to our cause would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,

Justin Pearce
President
Hurricane and Tropical Storm Protection Fund

Hope you folks enjoy. This may be the start of a new hobby. :3
