Here's what I don't understand about email spam
Why would "Scarlet Johansen" want to try and sell me a Motorola SLVR Phone? I mean, doesn't she have a more lucrative job?

And while we're on the subject... I DON'T NEED ANY HERBAL FRIGGIN' VIAGRA! Sheesh, guys, let it go already.

2. And the broken english spam from 'round the world
Now who is going to have any interest in reading, let alone responding to, email that barely resembles English. It's not even an attention getter.

Got to go. Have to send a money order for this amazing deal I'm working on! ;)

6. How did you find out??!
That was supposed to be a confidential communication. Out of all the billions of people in the world I was the one selected to help. Do you work for the NSA and have been reading my overseas communications??!

;)
