Some­times I’m just not sure what res­ult the spam­mers expect. This was in my spam folder yes­ter­day, sup­posedly from someone at the “BRITISH HIGH COMMISSION, TO THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA”.


Did you send Mr. Anthony Brown to pick up your ATM CARD on your behalf? He vis­ited our office yes­ter­day with the story that you are not fine and have been admit­ted to a psy­chi­at­ric hos­pit­al, please kindly recon­firm this news with a doctor’s report to enable us pre­pare an affi­davit on your behalf and release the ATM card to him.

But if this inform­a­tion is false, kindly get back to us imme­di­ately so we can appre­hend him.

We advise that you to also do the need­ful to make sure that the NFIU dis­patches your UKFSA SCAM VICTIMS COMPENSATION before Fri­day.

You are assured of the safety of your ATM CARD and it’s avail­ab­il­ity and be advised that you should stop fur­ther con­tacts with all the fake gov­ern­ment offi­cials online who in col­lab­or­a­tion scammed you.

I guess I was meant to email back and ask about my scam vic­tims com­pens­a­tion? I decided to just take their advice and not con­tact fake gov­ern­ment offi­cials online.

There is some amus­ing spam out there, that makes me smile. These ones are from people try­ing to write idio­mat­ic Eng­lish, but get­ting some of the words wrong, words that are syn­onyms in oth­er con­texts but not used in these. I also notice the trend away from extolling the vir­tues of whatever it is they’re ped­dling to bare-faced flat­tery with an embed­ded link.

Unques­tion­ably believe that which you said. Your favour­ite jus­ti­fic­a­tion appeared to be on the web the simplest factor to have in mind of. I say to you, I cer­tainly get annoyed at the same time as oth­er people think about issues that they just do not under­stand about. You man­aged to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without hav­ing side-effects , folks can take a sig­nal. Will likely be back to get more. Thank you

There are more, but that’s the pick of this week’s crop.
