Weird spam? Or just a weird girl?
31 May 2006
This just arrived in my inbox:
From: Carmen <email@example.com> Subject: metting you Hi there lovely, This kind of oppcortunity comes ones in a life. I don't want to miss it. Do you? I am coming to your palace in few days and I though may be we can meet each other. If you don't mind I ccan send you my picture. I am a girl. You can correspond with me using my email firstname.lastname@example.org
If that's just plain spam, how does the spammer intend to benefit from this? They're not going to sell any porn or dodgy medicine on an email address are they?
If the evil spammer intends to catch horny idiots who reply and so keep a list of people interested, aren't there easier ways than having to do it this way?
Or is this just a weird girl who tries to make contact. If so, I'm afraid that I don't live in a palace. I live in a flatshare in Shoreditch.
