Spam

I get the craziest spam, these days. And, no, I'm not talking about the canned ham product made by Hormel. I'm talking about the junk that clutters your e-mail inbox. It seems to get weirder and weirder.

This week alone, I've gotten an invitation to take four or five jobs (oh, good - if there's one thing I don't do, it's work enough!!!), an invitation to invest in a great stock I've never heard of (with WHAT money???), an invitation to (I'm not making this one up) study nursing online in my spare time. What??? I guess that means I wasted those four undergraduate years - I could have just studied online, in my spare time. Does anyone ever actually fall for this stuff?

The best, though, is from a "wealthy" Nigerian investor, who wants me to help him donate his fortune to charity. All $18 of it. And he's offered me 10% if I give him my bank account number... hmm, think of what I could do with $1.80!

LMAO.... I know how you feel. I get that spam .... and the ones about "sexual prowess"... lol.

But the "wealthy fella" has never contacted me. That's one for the books. ($18.00 indeed!!! lol)

Hilarious! The ones I always get are from Banks saying my account is in jeopardy--I don't care since I don't even bank with them!

Wolfie - I get the "emhancement" ones too, and they make me crazy. How do they know I'm not a child?


Amy, I get those, too - I guess the account is in jeopardy because I don't have one???
