Even though I have quite a decent solution running on my mail server to catch spam, some spam mails still evade my spam filter. Quite often I find the spam emails I get to be quite entertaining, and outright amazing. The stuff you get offered would be a rather long list, but for those of you that don’t get much spam, here are a few of them
- Cheap Viagra
Keeps you going and going and going. Pretty much like Duracell batteries.
- Penis enlarger/extensions
Increase your penis to the size of an elephant’s penis.
- Get your hair back pills
Got a bald spot? Fear not, these pills will get you hair which even the most hardcore black metal artist would envy.
- Refinance your mortgage
Yeah by doing this you will save thousands of $$$’s, we’ll even throw in a free Seiko digital sports watch. (they were out of Seiko)
- Want to lose weight; just click here
We’ll give you a range of pills which will get you slim in no time, when the package arrives on your doorstep it’s just a textbook that tells you to get off your fat arse and get out to enjoy nature.
Wanna help out a poor fella; “Man, I just lost all my money” or “I know this guy that lives down in XXXXXX who seriously needs some money” or some other really sad story that urges you to donate as much money as possible to help them out. Yeah right! You’re broke, but you still afford internet access you?
Hah, pull the other one.
But recently spammers have been offering stuff that I never thought possible. Spammers actually spamming trying to sell you anti-spam software. Oh my, what nerve! I hope they burn slowly on an open fire when they get to hell for all eternity. Just today I received two of those.
When I thought I had seen it all, I get a mail asking me if I wanted to be a minister. If I enrolled on their ingenious program I could become a minister within two weeks, and after passing an online exam I would be able to perform weddings, funerals, baptisms, and forgive people their sins what made me laugh so hard I almost wet my pants; visit correctional facilities.
Now, just getting the privilege to visit correctional facilities almost made me get my credit card out and enrol on this great course. Just think of that, skip years and years of theology schooling and be able to skip to the fun part. Oh my, I’m so thrilled!
Really, I am! NOT!
But here is where it starts to get funny, just the other day I registered a domain name for a friend of mine, as a gift. Just a couple of days after I had registered this domain, I receive a mail from a spammer asking me if I wanted to make money off my newly registered domain.
As he so nicely put it; “I noticed through my searches that you had registered the domain ‘pumpingirony.net’ and I was wondering if you wanted to make some money on your domain”. I was going all like “What the fuck!”. Given the number of domains that are registered daily, no person is able to check which domains were newly registered.
So my bet is that the fuckers (read: the registrar) I used to register the domain leaked information to a spammer, which then again contacted me. This pisses me off. Spammers are the scum of the earth. If you are a spammer, and read this post I want you to know this. If I ever get my hands on one of you twats, I’ll cut off your balls and roast them on an open fire. That’s the least I could do.
