The Most Ridiculous Phony Email (To Me)
Most of us who spend at least some time online (and you probably aren't reading this if you never go online) receive the occasional spam email. Emails that offer you money, "companionship", advisories, and so forth. OK.
Now some people are the equivalent of "street smart." They are "Internet smart", if you will. They can almost smell an illegitimate or spam email. I pride myself as being one of those. I don't believe a princess in Nigeria is really going to send me $24,000,000.00 due to my great trustworthiness, whether or not she calls me "Dear."
So some of these spam emails are downright humorous. And, no, I do not answer any of them. To do so would be pretty stupid. Now the funniest spam email variety I receive are the ones that incorporate part of my email address in them. In the subject line they include...
"Is this vsummers?"
Now really! If you send an email to VSummers, is it for PSmith or KJones? And if you felt you'd recognized me, wouldn't you ask something like...
"Is this Vince Summers from New Jersey who graduated high school with me?"
Yes, it's almost tempting to send back an email that says...
Is this STupid@yahoo.com?
