Periodically, I wade through my junk email folder at work, because occasionally a real email gets lost in there, and I'm amused by the subject lines of some of these emails, including:
-hi my lonely heart!!!!!!!
-The Ladies will call you Largissimo
-LET HANDLY IT TOGETHER
-I want sale you rolex. Do you want?
-Friends, recommend you a good site, you unless it. Certainly you like product.
Frankly, as annoying as it is, I find spam mail amusing. (I once got a spam email in written in what appeared to be Russian that included pictures with Japanese captions of a girl standing next to some sort of computerized toilet. Naturally, I followed the link to a Russian/Japanese website that was apparently selling various models of very high-tech toilet computers. That one kept me amused for a week. Unfortunately, the website is no longer available, and I don't know how to speak Russian in order to find it again, so I can't share the fun with the rest of you.) But my real question is - do these spam emails ever actually make money?? Are there people out there who read these and think "What fantastic timing! I was just thinking about how I'd like to be called Largissimo and also buy a Rolex from someone with a tenuous grasp of the English Language! I'm going to send my credit card number to this complete stranger in exchange for prescription medication and a designer watch and then hope that someone who has no qualms about filling my inbox with unsolicited, grammatically incorrect advertisements will have enough scruples not to steal my identity!"
If you've ever ordered anything from one of these emails, or you know someone who has, please let me know! As a reward for sharing your story, I promise to call you Largissimo.
