About Spam

A collection of Spam

SPAM!

I opened my regular email this morning and it looks like I have won the U.K. lottery for the fifth time in a row. I also have a great-uncle twice removed that left me as his sole inheritor. Oh and I can’t forget the widow in Saudi Arabia who wants me to help her hide her dead husbands money from the scheming in-laws.

There is a tonne of spam and most is annoying, but it is also amusing. I figured I would collect it and see the variety out there.

so send me your spam, your scams and your inheritance offers at spam@thegreatspamproject.com

. I want to see them

    I dont know about spam !!! it may be a SCAM, for i once replied with my info to one of these mails, and the guy called me …yes on my home phone… the very next day explaining the same story as in the email… I just didnt go forward, because as it appears, it seemed too suspicios for me to throw my life away over some devious scheme.

    Dear Friend,
    I am contacting you as a matter of urgency about a huge transfer of ($8,500,000.00) Eight Million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollar. But I want to first transfer $1,500.000.00 (One million Five hundred thousand USD) from this money into a safe account and after which we will transfer the remaining (7M) I have only written to seek for your indulgence and assistance. You will be providing a designated bank account of your choice. It is an unequivocal fact that we’ve not met nor communicated before but due to the true revelation that I should share this with you.

    My name is Mr Ibrahim Musa Director of integrated finance of a bank here in West Africa Thus for your indulgence and assistance (morally and financially), i propose a 45% share of the total amount to you after the transfer has been successfully effected, I need your urgent response on assurance of trust that you will not deny me my share once the fund is credited to your personal bank account as I am a poor civil servant who depends solely on monthly salary, so kindly state your interest by replying immediately and i shall furnish you with details and procedures preceding the transfer.

    Mr Ibrahim Musa

    I don’t know how, but I keep getting email that’s supposed to be from Fidelity Life. I have unsubscribed. I have tried sending to my junk folder. I’ve listed it as a phishing scam, but it’s still coming. I tried to send them an email saying to stop it! I got some address saying “clearsteer”. I googled that and found y’all. I just want it to stop!

    • Kattosha says:

      unfortunately if it has the word ‘clearsteer’ in the email then it is not legitimate. Your best bet is to try to blocking the word “clearsteer”. Blocking hte email address probably won’t work because they will keep changing it.
