Silly Spam thread: Got a great one today :D Can't Post

How's this for a subject line?

"Subject: Re Urgent (Can We Ever Really Trust Each Other in this business?)"

Well, that was irresistible, so I did that right-click-view-message-source thing Hotmail has, and among other things (in a very long email), there were some wonderful gems. Any takers?ShockedWinkEvilAngelic

"This business is all about money transaction. I has been searching for a advanced/developing country with economic and political stability to invest this amount. I have go through your profile and I believed that you will be of a great assistance to me considering your position and experience in Business management."

Yep, us music teachers swim with the corporate sharks every Tuesday over Bach and chocolates. (Actually that sounds pretty good!Cool)

Then there's the scary part about how the money is coming from a deceased Libyan Prime Minister who was not able to transfer his funds out in time, and the spam sender saying after "confirming [the Libyan official's] his death" (wonder how!!!Shocked) the message goes on to say "I have not forwarded the information to the bank managements. am keeping everything as top secrets within myself till after the verification. This is a golden opportunity for us to establish our own leavings. I have decided to contact you in order to assist me for execution of the deal."

There is more. Much more. But I am Leaving(s). I am Going Now. He'll have to find someone else to assist with (or be the victim of?) the ... execution.
