"Is it Ottilia, Hun?" (The Sporadic Silly Spam Thread) Can't Post

Here is a "combo" of this weeks delicious offerings I received (for free!) in my spam folder:

1) From: "Ottilia Owens-- This Company is our Subpenny Alert" (What's a subpenny, Precious?CrazyBlush)

2) Subject line: "Quataion"
"Please send me quote on the requested product. We will like to make an order of 20ft container ASAP."

(But, but, they didn't name any product for me to make a quat on! How shall I proceed?)

3)
"Desmond Rollo--
Hello, Can we work together? We are destined for success. Can I entrust this transaction into your hands? Can you uphold financial transaction
in utmost secrecy, sincerity and seriousness?. I want you to stand as the heir apparent to a bank account belonging to a deceased person.
There is no time to waste, this matter calls for urgency."


(So that must be what [who] is in that 20 ft. container, along with the funds, I expect? Starling, can you get your manservant to carry it home for me?)

And the prizewinner!

Compliments Of The Season, Forgive my indignation if this message comes to you as a surprise and may offend your personality for contacting you without your prior consent and writing through this channel . . .
(Hmmmmm?)
Anyone feel like turning all these into a story? Or writing their own creative spam for fun and profit? Or maybe it just makes you run off and watch Monty Python episodes.Cool

I had my first txt-spam last week. [In reply to] Can't Post

I've won $2,500 million in online Lotto - all I need do is email a gmail address and I'm Scrooge McDuck rich.

Anyone want some of this? I'm sure I can ask for the cash in various currencies - perhaps even Nigerian Nairas.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

My favorite spam [In reply to] Can't Post

Are the ones I get from the "FBI" claiming I've been ripped off by Nigerians and offering to get my money for me. All I have to do is click on the link....and send them my bank information. It would be more credible if there weren't so many misspellings and obvious cut-and-pastes (text different sizes).

There it is: dwarves are not heroes, but calculating folk with a great idea of the value of money; some are tricky and treacherous and pretty bad lots; some are not, but are decent enough people like Thorin and Company, if you don't expect too much.

I get them all the time! [In reply to] Can't Post

Here's the latest from Interpol (today),an excerpt:

"Attn: Unpaid Beneficiary,

It is quite glaring as shown on our records that you have not received your reimbursement of $1.5 Million US Dollars only due to the
actions/activities of corrupt Government Officials who almost held the fund to themselves for their own personal and selfish reasons.

Faithfully,
Mr. Ibrahim Lamorde
Financial Crimes Commission
CC: National Central Bureau of Interpol"
