    Whats the silliest spam email message you have received that has caught your eye. Usually when deleting spam I swiftly browse the names and topics in case anything has been autospammed.

    Just received one from a

    'Mr Ban Ki Moon' entitled 'Important Information from the United Nations'

    Didn't open it, I think if its that important he'll probably give me a call.
    It did make me smile.

    My favourite had the subject line:


    There was no further content in the email.

    I was scared.

    My sister used to pass on those emails with ASCII art from around year 2000. It was fairly routine/pyramid stuff, but some of the pictures were weird e.g. a totem.

    Was that the follow-up email after you'd already bought some? :D

    Frankly, I now can't move for Viagra. And not because I bought a lot.

    To hell with the fact that he's dead, just what in the name of all that is holy was he doing to those trees?

    On Hotmail? Got the same message this morning.

    Their new filtering technology sucks the nuts.

    You just inspired me to check my hotmail. I didn't get that message and felt slightly disappointed. :(

    However, on the bright side my August 2010 psychic reading was in my junk mail folder. Didn't open it though as I already know what it says. :cool: :p

    I like the basic style of this one, Government departments really need to put more effort in.

    I remember a mate of mine who got sick of those 'email to ten people and find out your secret lover' chain emails and wrote a rant reply to the sender, ending it 'send this to ten people or your pants will consume you'.

    A couple of years later, the result of that chain rant found its way back into my inbox :eek:

    Aw, well, at least it shows that spammers have a sense of humour.

    Either that or they really are that retarded. :/

    I can't seem to find that email in my inbox now.. but anyways I remember being emailed by a "lawyer" saying that I have inherited millions from a distant relative who did not have any family and I was apparently his closest relative...

    I already knew what would happen if I contacted back :o

    He'd start asking details to send the money in along with all my other details to confirm that I am who he thinks I am...
