What The Funniest SPAM Email You've Ever Received

Hey guys
I was going through my spam folder and found quite a funny title to one of the emails from an internet "GURU"...erm

The link in the email was titled

"I can't believe this newsreporter is revealing the TRUTH about online earnings"

LOL

I mean what did this spammer think??? That I thought Trevor Macdonald was being interviewed in the hot-seat or something (an obvious authority in IM) and suddenly he was going to reveal to me some sort of truth that I had been denied of all these years???

I regularly get the "I am a bank manager and I would like to transfer the sum of 25 mill into your bank" emails and read on other forums about some being signed by the likes of "Moulder Skully" - LOL

This is obviously not a serious post but thought it might be worth a laugh to hear what other people get in thier spam boxes from time to time.

So, the point of this post; What is the BEST/FUNNIEST SPAM/SCAM you have seen in your spam folder to date?

    Mine has to be the "There is a check for $1978 waiting for you Robert" then i open it and there is a link to my check. Soon as the page starts to load it is a Viagra site with a link that says if you were directed here click this link. After clicking the link it referred me to a Penis Enlarging site. so i laugh and close the page but one of those nifty popups come on the screen saying "Wait before you leave Click Here" so i click it and it takes me to a genital herpes site!!!!.

    My funniest encounter with spam was last week, I keep getting those 'western union' emails telling me there is a beneficiary with over a million dollars awaiting transfer to my account!!!

    I decided last week to play along, so i replied and said I was really interested can you give me more info, so the spammer got straight back to me and said 'you need to come over to Banin to sign forms, but I understand that would be expensive so if you send your details I will forward the money to your account to get over here to sign the forms', so I sent another reply saying thats fine I've got money I'll come over in 2 days where shall I meet you' He started panicking and finding all sorts of reasons that its better that I forward my details and let him sort it out!! I mept this going for three days in the end until I got bored of him and told him to go forth and multiply or I'll report him!

    Highly reccomend it, try it next time you get one!!!!

    Yeah I was fooled once with such kinda email once in 2008 that said I own a lottery of $1 million and a digital check also signed and ready and all I need to do is sending them a $300 processing fee.Fortunately i was escaped this fake thing after consulting my parents,,although I lost some money as telephone bill by calling to Nigeria.Lol..

    this one will make you cry.

    Back in January I received one.... and guess what the title was.

    "This is not spam"

    and.... I open it up.

    What do you think it was.

    VIAGRA ADS...... about across and a mile deep. No pun intended.

    Now what is the first thing you think of when you see a "this is not spam" subject line. **rolls eyes**

            Got one a couple for days ago from Colonel Gaddafi's daughter, apparently she's in a little bit of a bind at the moment and wanted my assistance in getting a large amount of money out Libya. She did advise me though to keep it to myself as the secret police were trying to find her and if found would ultimately meet a rather nasty end.

            Now, I've told you guys cos I trust you, and I know you wouldn't tell anyone, right? :rolleyes:

              Sometimes it's not just the subject of the spam that is funny,
              but the sequence in which it arrives, can be funny too.

              One minute I'll get 30-40 Viagra ones,
              (The magical solution to a problem I "supposedly" have).

              Next minute I'll get 30-40 "Buy our Luxury Watches", ones.

              So not only can I cure my "supposed" problem,
              but now I can see how long it takes to work.

                This one was definitely not the most outlandish, but it was hands-down the "funniest". Here is what the body of the email said...

                HTML Code:
                 Let professionels push your websites to the Top pages on the most
                 famous search engines   We believe that writing a good article isn't a
                 secretary's job, it's an  intelligent job, it should be done carefuly, it
                 involves a high level marketing  background and an effecient psychological
                 approach to target deeply  costumer's wiches and thoughts   We will write
                 and rewrite articles for your websites...

                        I used to get all sorts of funny and/or strange emails. I ran a couple in the sidebar of my newsletter once to amuse folks, which led to a few copycats, and I started getting all sorts of crazy emails.

                        I got enough that I made an ebook out of them and gave away for whatever humor value they had. Some people really cracked up over them, others just thought they were stupid. I'll paste a couple in and let you judge for yourself:
                        He placed the ball on the tee. Because of the light snow that fell during the clubhouse lunch, he used an orange ball to help track its flight against the dusting of snow.

                        He addressed the ball, pulled back, and took the mightiest of swings. Splat! In his inattention, our hero had placed a tangerine from his lunch on the tee instead of his golf ball.

                        That meant . . . he must have eaten his golf ball for lunch! Frantic, he grabbed his cell phone and called his doctor’s office.

                        "I fear I have eaten a golf ball," he told the receptionist, "please put me through to the doctor."

                        The receptionist explained that the doctor was with a patient and she couldn’t let our hero play through, he'd have to wait.

                        Our hero started to panic, but then remembered something George Bernard Shaw once wrote, "I" ...and then some other stuff with it.

                        He forgot what else he wrote, but just remembering that much comforted him greatly. Then he died.

                        Have a pickle!

                        I have often wondered, but it goes away if I ignore it. Tell me, do you like to swerve?

                        My, you certainly have changed. How did you manage to grow two belly buttons? They look like giant caverns, and I believe I heard an echo emanate from their depths. Only in America, huh?

                        Haven't you got anything better to do than read this nonsense? I am being paid to write this, if you're being paid to read it we have a dainty cement mixer, wouldn't you say? Whether you do or not, moo.

                  Re: The article writing email

                  Wait a minute, wait a minute - is he/she/it insinuating that secretaries aren't "professionel" and intelligent enough to write articles? Bwahaha!

                  THIS administrative assistant (the preferred title for secretaries nowadays) would be insulted...except the email in question is so bad with just the spelling that it's laughable. I will never understand the people who send these spams - do they really think someone will fall for something this badly worded?

                  Thanks for this one; gave me a good chuckle. :-)

    I got one once that said Hi honey it's mom. The email went into great detail about how much she missed me since I was gone and how she wished I would visit more often. It wasn't until I got to the bottom and read would you mind if I sent you some money XXX,XXX to your bank that I realized something a little funky was going on. Almost got me but not quite!

    someone has hacked my uni professor email,
    I [and later i found all contacts on his email list] received an email that he is on holidays in Nigeria and that he has lost his purse and passports etc and is now desperate for me to send him 2000 pounds , so that he can arrange his return flight back to London. The email also mention that because he trust me more, that is why he is asking me and i should not mention it to anyone. I was told to send money to a strange name, the reason mentioned was because someone is supporting him there temporarily, thats why he wants that man to receive money who will give to him.
    coincidentally he was on holidays but in Canada. i was planning to go to bank and find the near western union to send him money until i saw one of his assistant, i asked him how is he and if he has heard of our professor, he said that he just called him and have spoken to him, i was quite surprised that why he didnt mention of his condition to his assistant, so i decided to tell him about the email, anyways we called him, he was shocked as well and we realised that it was hacking.
    we informed other people on his list as well so that nobody get fool with that mail.

      Not sure if I still have any of them saved, but some of the more funny unwanted emails I get are those pretending to be from some russian girl wanting to know me closer.

      The funny part comes because sometimes they use Google Translate when they target the Norwegian market.

      Things have a tendency to come out very wrong. You might be able to understand what the original wording was in English, but if what is written in Norwegian should have been translated back to English, it would have come out totally insane

    I remember one email I got. The head-line was like this or something:

    "You have an rich uncle from Nigeria who recently died"


    The first Nigerian scam email I got was funny because I'm so white that it is possible to be, and my parents haven't told me that they have brothers or sisters living in Nigeria!

    But I became quickly tired of them, and now I don't bother reading them anymore.
