I have to admit that the second mail from above has an increased level of stupidity than the first one.How lame can you be to think you can get someone with stuff like that?

Some more:

stupid_ym_spamThis one is a little newer and of-course a fishing spam most tasteful for Romanian speakers. Very efficient usage of the Romanglish language. Clicking on the header would have brought you to the link below:


By the time a viewed the email(a few hours after it reached my Yahoo inbox) the link was already down :lol:. Lol…don’t be scared i didn’t click on it from internet explorer on windows ;), but instead i tried to view it with links and download it with wget, but…as i said, they were so good that they couldn’t even keep the phishing site up for a few hours 😆 or maybe they were too good and knew that keeping a phishing site up for more then a few hours is probably a bad thing for them because it actually increases the ease of investigating the scam when the right people notice it, which is again, highly unprobable for them to have thought of that,given the way the spam mail was “designed”.

Here is the full e-mail header just for fun:

And another one intended to strike you right in the heart :X :X, pardon me, the Trash mailbox(Ulia <>):

Good day, gentleman

Somewhere there's someone, who dreams about your smile, and finds in your
presence, that life is worth while, so when you are lonely, remember it's
true, somebody somewhere is thinking of "you"
Vivacious Redhead Waiting to be Found - I am fun, passionate, sensual,
intelligent, exciting, good heart, honest, upfront, at times too loud and
other times shy. Looking for someone to spend the rest of my life with,
not just a night, few weeks or months, want a serious relationship, I am not
into the online games, and will not play with you. I am not put up with people
that intentionally hurt others, am independent, straight forward, speak my mind
and will not be compromised. I can hold my own. http://link I am looking for the one who is honest, passionate and good sense of humor. He is intelligent, kind, gentle and loves children and animals.
Smile at me
