The Stupidest Scam Email I've Ever Received

OK. You've probably received tens of thousands of spam emails over the years. If not, you are either a hermit or you let fear of receiving spam emails slow you down. And I don't blame you for that. However, I cannot afford to do that, so I've received the tens of thousands...

Well many of them congratulate me, beg me to take their money, or express concern for me, which concern can be dissolved if I send them my social security number, the password to my computer, and Mom's maiden name.

Well, sorry folks. I may be old, but I ain't stupid. AND, I'm not greedy. So I haven't bitten the bullet yet.

Occasionally, I have to snicker at a spam. They can be funny. But this one brought a chortle, no, a guffaw!

"Notice: Your attempt to close your account failed!"

"Your request notice, dated [day, month, year] has failed."

Why the laugh? Because the date provided doesn't happen for two days!

Not just SPAM emails but I got a text message on Facebook that I was to receive a whopping 150,000.00 from the Bill Gates society. I blocked that user ASAP. It turned out their account was removed due to not providing any information to FB. Then I got an invite to join the Illuminati via Twitter. NO chance I would ever fall for that kind of garbage. I haven't checked my email in over 6 weeks. by now I figure I have at least 5000 emails to delete.

The spam emails I am getting are in totally garbled English. Why they think ANYONE would click on them, I do not know. The email titles are weird. Such as "There is dangerousoffers in defiance of you" and "Here is charming benefaction seeking you".

Whoops! I guess I have to brush up on my English... Many of mine are like that as well. Some are in all caps. Others use overly familiar greetings, probably typical in some other countries, e.g. Dearest in the Lord, or From the Desk of Joe Blow. Quickly avoidable. Others are somewhat more transparent.
