I have a folder that diverts all the spam emails from my inbox and as I am up at this ridiculous hour I've just been having a look through it.

Some of the email headings are wicked. :lol:

Loads of variations on the "buy this drug and make it bigger" theme. :eek:

A couple from ladies trying to sell their services to me. :unsure:

Someone is even trying to sell me one of the 3 spare ipads they have. :nono:



But this one is completely and totally my best. :rotfl:


Did you suffer a Gallbladder injury while using Birth Control...

Much the same thing here. :lol: There must be loads of men out there with complexes from all those insinuating "not measuring up" offers! :eek:

Ploys for money too. There are the "you've won $$$$$$$$$$" all you need to do is...

Also the many versions of "there's been a breach in our security and we need you to confirm your account info" Ayuh. Not today thanks.

The beggars too. The ones who claim to be from a given destitute (usually African) country and they need only a bit...

we got this one the other day:


Good day,


Please excuse this humble email if it offends your sensibilities, but I have no other means to contact you. I cannot talk on the telephone, so I did a search for your email address, which I found on the International Business Directorate Email Data Search. My name is Mrs. M Pete, I'm a 52 years old woman.


I am a widow who is dying of oesophageal cancers. I was married to Donald Pete, who was an Executive of Shell Oil Company. We are both British people who worked in South Africa until he was killed. Presently, I'm in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment for Cancer in South Africa.


I have with a security firm a very huge amount of money which my husband deposited before he died in a tragic automobile accident where he was killed instantly. Because my doctors informed that I have several weeks to live I must find a good God fearing person who will see that my money is used for the benefit of the less privileged like homeless orphans and motherless babies.

I have decided to seek your help in carrying out my last wishes, I have since lost my ability to talk and my doctors have told me that I have only few weeks to live, It is my last wish to see this money distributed.

My research says you are just the person I seek. Because you have been found #so trustworthy, I will like you to keep 15% for yourselves and give the rest to worthy charity. Maybe you could start the Donald Pete Foundation which will keep my husband name alive.

As soon as I receive your reply I shall give you the contact of the financial company in South Africa/ Germany and I will send authority letter that will prove you the present beneficiary of the money in the finance company that is if you assure me that you will act accordingly as I stated herein


1. Your Full Names
2. Your contact Address
3. Your Age
4. Your Marital Status
5. Your Occupation
6. Your Mobile Numbers and
7. Your Home Phone


Feel free to call Mr. Makolo on phone no: +...................and ask any question regarding this transaction.

Be Bless as you reply positively,
Remain Blessed,

Dawn :lol: did they suggest which partner had injured his/her gallbladder?

Britchick
22-05-2010, 03:58 PM
The mind boggles. ... Unless it's a side effect of the pill! But that's not during.....

So I'm gathering that I should share my money, call a naughty lady, stay away from birth control, drinks lots, and find a man with blue pills?

Britchick
22-05-2010, 07:58 PM

No, but I did injure it during my caesarean section. I had to have it removed 6 months after Alysia was born. Something about the air getting into the body cavity. I only know that I kept telling everyone the dr didn't put me back together right and no one beleived me.

:tongue: well I get all sorts of emails to make male body parts bigger. And of course lots of ones about people being stuck in foreign countries and could I please wire them money to get home.

I got one telling me I had a tax refund due, could buy cheap meds online and that my HSBC account was going to be frozen - I don't have one!


All joking aside though a lot of older people with memory problems get targetted by mail scammers. If they respond the scam
ers sell their details on, sometimes thousands of ús are lost. You can't do anything about it either! Scum of the b earth if you ask me!
