I spend a fair bit of time on this here interwebz, and get a lot of email, from touch-bases with friends, to advertising, to alerts and blogs I have subscribed to, to all kinds of weird shit that makes you go HUH?
Over the past few days I have won the Irish lottery, received a Lucrative Business Proposal, been approached by Mendez Adolfo who Needs My Assistance And Trust, gotten a Final Notification!! re my Swiss Lotto Winning, been offered a No Cost Assessment by Melissa something on I don't know the hell what, and been approached by Mr Eaton Wazri who is awaiting my urgent reply concerning the African Development Bank Investment Opportunity.
I won Seven and Hundred and Fifty Great Thousand British Pounds in The Toyota Cash Splash, I won a million pounds in a tobacco promo, a million pounds in the BT promo, and once I hand over my banking info some dude across the world is going to confirm my transfer from the International Monetary Fund. Woo hoo, I am rich!
And once I collect all that real money from those trustworthy sources, I can spend it on email ads for Viagra and assorted prescription drugs, buy an island in the Caribbean, and triple my money in 90 days by investing in a Sudan Investment Fund.
Hey, it all came by email, so it's gotta be true!
There have always been con men and snake oil salesmen, and the new digital age is just a whole new high speed platform for them. So, seriously, people, are you falling for this shit? Really?
If I had a prize to give for best (worst?) whackjob email I received it would go to (drumroll please)... an invitation to The Perfect Ass Dating Community. Yes really. So there are so many perfect asses out there who want to meet other perfect asses to date that they felt under appreciated and compelled to organize? Kinda sweet, no?
Hey, for fun, I just googled these perfect ass guys, and they don't seem to have a really systematic online presence, so I am starting to get suspicious. I don't think it's a real community... Whaaaaaaaaat? This shit isn't real? Holy crap! Lowlife spam bastards...
