Spam Mail

Postby Derek Bullock » Thu Feb 14, 2008 12:14 pm

Sometimes I go through my spam box just to see if it has caught a real email and it's amazing what ends up in there.

Look at this one.

In the from section its from Julianne Bennet and the email address is Claudia Schiffer but in the text its from George Nelson.

Very dumb I reckon.

Do other people get these sort of things.

By the way I doubt that is Claudia's real email address so wouldn't bother trying to contact her :***

SPAM

Postby Activity_Dept » Thu Feb 14, 2008 2:26 pm

What I particularly find disturbing is when they use I think they are called packet sniffing scripts to determine names that you send emails to, receive emails from or a subject in the subject field and then use it in the SPAM i.e. you receive an email from Jo Blog and then you receive SPAM from a Jo Blog. I don’t know if you have experienced that or not but it gets me every time “personalized SPAM. ::()

The best I've received lately was entitled "Turn your Garden Snake into Anaconda" and went on to extoll the virtues of some wonder drug to help you out in the bedroom department.

Wow. Your own camp store! :armsup

This is one I got the other day at work, under the subject ehading of "Date"

Hello !

Sunrise somewhere in the nature - a big shimmering sea or a little quiet river, awaking green forest or mountains in the first sun beams - rosy and soft.... And a warm gentle embrace of the most special and precious man, feeling his attention with carefully put jacket on me, and to touch tenderly his hair, when he puts his head on my knees with trust in his eyes...

Stars, leaving the sky and singing their farewell with the gentle wind, blowing from the distant field, full of blossoming scents mixed with the fresh aroma of grass... and simple field flowers, brought with love and care will be the most valuable treasures in the world for me.... I adore nature, and every touch with it is already romantic for me. And I think this quality is one of the most important for me in a man of my desire. Please find me http://powerman.ru/news/photo.php and help me to make my dreams come true.

Besides, I want him to love children and to be able to accept life in the childish way: with joy, humour and sincere wondering sometimes. I want him to be open-minded and honest. That's all I need... is it too much?

Waiting for your reply
Sabry B

I don't get any spam :shock:

I'm use Gmail 8)

But I do have friends who keep sending those stupid chain letters :roll: Last one was about some little girl in Poland who got really badly burnt, send this on and for every email sent 3c goes to help the kid, was the gist of it.

So I finally snapped and hit "reply all", kindly explaining to them all how stupid they are for believing the crap, and for sending it on, along with links to appropriate sites explaining how/why chain letters work and what they are used for.

Haven't received a chain letter for a while now :lol:

Same here. I also use opera as my browser so I don't get any annoying popups.

I am the IT admin at my work, our spam filters block about 18,000 junk mails a month but we still get about 5,000 a month that get past the filters :x

The spam senders keep changing their methods & spam filter definitions just can't keep up!

Spammers may send out over a million emails & out of that maybe 10% would get to someones inbox, then out of that 5% would open the email & go to the website & buy the products advertised which then means a 100% profit as it costs nothing to send out email.

Then there is the other scenario, some of these sites the 5% click on & open are infected with a program to turn their machine into a zombie that sends out more junk & keeps the cycle going, in fact at any one time on the net there could be millions of zombie pcs all sending spam & being controlled by the master spam sender & untraceable back to the master :?

Here is a junk mail I got this morning.

"Roland" who's he? :*** I have seen a blog about these Russian dating sites & on it the guy was saying that he had replied to one of these "russian brides" & was still yet to get an answer from them, I should try & see if I can find it agian & see if he has an update.

On the subject of V1agra ads etc, they do work as I know of a guy here who ordered some & it was delivered to work too, he was very embarressed as it was opened by our storeman & he saw what it was :*** needless to say the guy who bought the v1agra quickly left our employment.

I just noticed a funny thing, whenever I type V1agra (with "i" instead of "1" it comes out as Iamaverylonelypersonwithnothingtodo :***

Funny thing is the guy sitting across the desk from me got the exact same email with only a change of name and year of date of birth different.

Other funny thing is we would normally both ignore these types of emails but there must be something in the air this morning. We both got a chuckle about it.
