fun with boring spam

SPAMIt’s interesting to see how spammers keep finding ways to circumvent the latest in spam detection technology.

A new tactic seems to be that in order to have their emails passed the spam detection filters, they start writing pretty damn normal emails. I mean like, seriously, who would have thought. It’s back to square one I guess, and with emails like this, it’s even becoming harder to detect the rotten apples in your own inbox on sight.

Bugger.

You might even start replying to the spammer in question, because you think he somehow send you a message that wasn’t intended for you?

Dear Greg,

I think you have to wrong guy here.

First of all, my name isn’t Garry. I don’t know the poor sod, but judging from your email he definitely needs some help. Second I don’t have erectile difficulties, thank God (and I’m not even religious). Where did you pick up the word “erectile” btw, it’s kinda funny.

Anyway, I don’t have those kind of issues. Oh and by the way, I don’t want my “hotrod” to be larger than it is either, in case you have pills to fix that as well. I got a bunch of emails about that too, but I can’t remember who those where from. Oh, and don’t get me started on the increase your jizz kinda pill. What the hell is up with that? Which girl is going to be pleased with that I wonder? You’ve been watching too much porn if you think every girl wants a double pearl necklace my friend. Too much porn can give you funny ideas like that. Like thinking that a girl hasn’t had a good day until she has some tripple penetration and her fair share of ooh yeah babies or oh my Gods (yep, on the religious tip again). So turn off that BitTorrent client of yours and stop wasting so much damn bandwith on smut!

But I degress.

I do have one more tip for you however Greg. You should really try and get a more intuitive domain name for your website. There’s no way I’ll ever remember going to http://regcntq3efe1d2c4vv0qq1d88jd8bq.defacerjl.com/ if I would end up having those manly problems at some point. Can you even remember that name? I think not!

An URL like that will not turn up in any Google searches relevant to you business either, which isn’t good for your return on investment.

Kind regards,
n3wjack

ps: I think there’s something wrong with your email software as well. There’s some weird jibberish in your email footer. Maybe check out Thunderbird oslt, cause it rawks.
