Looks like the spammers have found us
« on: November 03, 2008, 07:58:56 PM »
BuyCialisOnlineRX, GuadalupeXI, litemasshitersq, litemasshiters, litemasshit, so far in the past 5 days.

Guess we're REALLY popular now. ::)

I hope one day to be the guy that throws the switch on a huge line of spammers.  I'd love to watch them fry. >:(

(or tell their mothers what they do for a living)

I get about a dozen at least a day. Gets to be a real pain to sort the new members out from the trash.

Its a level of prestige. The higher traffic we get the more spammers we will get. I usually work from 7A - 7P so I seem to miss alot of the spammin.  :-[

Speaking of which I might have that for lunch tomorrow. All this talk to frying spam-mers has got me hungry. (Sorry to add the cheese to the spam)

Careful, hitting a 3yr old is child abuse.
Adults don't do that kind of stuff anymore, no fun in it.
Kids on the other hand.....

Just count to 10 and walk away!

Any person who causes me to delete 30k+ spam emails is not a kid and deserves lots of pain...

I have a new email address!

You can now email me at: fmaria_elena0101@yahoo.com



- Good Day. I am Madame Maria Elena Fernandez, a native of Philippine nationality, a divorcee and former mistress to our deposed President, Joseph Estrada.
 I would like to have a long lasting and confidant relationship with you and thereby entrusting my life time fortune into your possession, as now I am broken hearted and needs someone to trust, without remembering my past and forsaken experiences from close confidants and family. I need someone, who would take me for whom I am and as a life time partnership in a lucrative business venture. I am under immigration security watch-list and seriously monitored. All, I wanted from you is to assist me make claims of some funds, I did deposited in Europe, as the other deposits documents have been confiscated and seized by the government of Madam Gloria, the President. But, this one is the only one they could not see, as I did keep the documents with one of my close confidant, who was also arrested. We deposited Ten million Euros in Security Company as a family valuable, as this was the money that was supposed to be used by the President to acquire some properties in America. what I need from you now is honesty and sincerity, as soon as this money is been claimed by you, I will look for a way out and sneaked out of Philippines and travel down to meet you, so we can go into a life time partnership together, in investing this money in your country and anywhere else you prefer. I would be expecting your reply, Yours, Madame Maria Elena Fernandez. Email: maria.elena@web2mail.com

Hehh heh,
You gotta love em though. Your reading through business e-mail for four hours and this one comes across your inbox. You end up sending it to all your employees and you all get a laugh for 5 minutes to break up the monotony. They serve their purpose.

Have you followed the one where the guy (US side) gets the other guy (Nigerian side) to get tattoo'd to get the money?  Photo's and all, let me see....http://www.419eater.com/html/okorie.htm  Good read, great deal of patience on the US guys side.  boring ending, but still a fun read.  These guys nail them on a regular basis.

There are guys who bait these spammers into doing some crazy stuff.  I guess there's a whole scene for it and they just torture these spammer.  

There's an episode of This American Life about it:

"Three guys who go by the names Professor So and So, Jojobean and YeaWhatever spend part of each day running elaborate cons on Internet scammers. They consider themselves enforcers of justice, even after they send a man 1400 miles from home, to the least safe place they can bait him: the border of Darfur. The three self-made enforcers tell Ira their story."
