spamWow I’m rich!


and I didn’t know it :)


The below is copied and pasted from a piece of spam email that I received. It made it through two email spam filters including Google’s. So I imagine I’m not the only one who has received it. When I did a quick search I didn’t find any examples, so I’m adding this to the interwebs as official spam documentation.

It’s too bad, I always thought my uncle was a rich Oil Tycoon ;)

It was well written, but still spam. So folks are spamming Google Profiles now….. lovely.

Just doing my part to document the spam on the interwebs… and now back to your regularly scheduled tube surfing.
