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”.

ATTENTION:

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.
