Spam – don’t you love it! No, I’m not talking about this Spam:
I’m talking about the spam that fills your email accounts.
My main email account is through hotmail, so the majority of my spam gets sent to my “junk” folder. I rarely ever open anything that gets sent to my junk mail – I normally click “select all” and then POOF, spam all gone.
And although I don’t open my spam, it is sometimes interesting what spammers do to try and attract your attention. Some of these messages are:
--Cash for Jewelry – they want to give me top dollar for my gold and silver.
--Medical transcriptionist – there must be a HUGE vacancy for transcriptionist, but I get this one several times a day.
--Enjoy a laptop – from the number of times I receive this spam in a week’s time, they must have thousands, maybe millions of laptops to give away.
--Profit tips – they want to show me a special way to make a profit.
--Sham Wow – as seen on TV
--Reunion.Com – they always have someone who is looking for me.
--Check your credit – hmmm, they are very interested in my credit.
--Government stimulus – this one has been showing up frequently since Obama took office.
--GMB news – they want me to make $300 - $925 every day in just a few minutes.
Then there is:
--Jennifer Baxter – she tries to attract my attention with her laments about “once upon a time…”
--Paul – let me show you some internet tricks
--Tom Boswell – have I got a job for you.
And my personal favorite:
--Mrs. Morgan – dear Christian friend.
And these don’t even count the number of porn sites - I can’t even print the subject line because they are so filthy.
So, what did your spam filter catch today?
