Spam Roundup

I've written several posts over the years about the sort of spam that fills up my in-box, and how it's changed over the years ... last time was in June of last year. Here are a few of the latest e-mails that have appeared in one or more of my accounts, with all capitalization and punctuation as in the original ...

"Free samples! You too can have sex longer than 5 minutes!" This one was from "Purple Rhino Trial"

"Genius Pill banned in 49 states!" I'm not sure it would have helped in the election, anyhow.

"BOOST your testosterone before you lose her!" Hell, if Agnes hasn't left me by now, "Vydox" won't be much of a game-changer.

"Effortlessly Clean Your Bathroom Without Chemicals." I'd rather just have someone else effortlessly clean my bathroom.

"Life Saving Flashlight." - I suppose the wonderful "X700 Tactical Flashlight" would come in handy when the Russians stop hacking our elections and take down the electrical grid.

"The World's Most Comfortable Anti-Snoring Product." The neighbors must be complaining again.

"Huge Savings for Toilet Paper with Free Coupons." Yes, I could use these, because Sean Spicer's White House press briefings are keeping me very regular.

"Exotic Russian Women are waiting for you Now." I guess they're setting their sights lower now that Mr Trump is being more cautious.

"I think ur fb pic is cute :)." This message was from "Kandy," who has online communications skills similar to those of our president.


"Get up to $15,000 Overnight!" This one came from "Zippy Loans." Can you spell "loan shark?"

Spam. What's really scary is that there are people out there who will respond to these. Oy.

Have a good day. Don't click on the links from those Russian women. More thoughts tomorrow.

Going into the spam folder is like wading in a toxic swamp! Where's my Nigerian prince when we need him?

I can't even decipher a lot of mine these days - I think they're in Arabic.

Not much spam is getting through to me these days. The filter on the AT&T server picks 99% of it off. Send me that one about the Russian women.

They also are available as Ukrainin women.

Some people will believe anything. Some people will spam anything. It's a bad combo!
