extracting and liking they

Phishing attempts appear to be getting more creative. Not necessarily any more believable, but certainly more amusing.

Hello Man,
I don't know how to say it, but I've tryed before a long time to send you some photos, but I've thought that you aren't interested to see me.
But now I'm going to send you the Photos in the Attachment.
Download the pictures and extract they, I'm sure that you will like they. The password is: 123456
Have a great day.

Now I feel badly that I wasn't interested to see they.

It's one of the better ones I have received lately, WC.

I have been getting some really random spam on the blog lately. It goes into my Spam filter, thankfully. Although I should keep them and do a post. I agree, the bots are getting more creative. I tell you...those robots.

Pity, though. They pictures sounded great. I've been getting spam on live messenger a lot lately, linking me some album on Facebook and going all "OMG you looked so hot at the party last weekend!" or "How could you do this to me, I never knew you could be such a bitch". Quite a dramatic bot, that.

Spam is getting so creative. I've even had blog spam lately referencing words I used in the post itself. Unfortunately, these words are very out of place/misused in the comment, but THEY sure are trying.

and there is also those Craigslist scammers who are about the same grammatically. I am selling my motorcyle and one guy from Tunisia insists he wants it and he will send me a money order for the full price plus shipping. Shipping alone would cost more than the motorcycle is worth.

Approaching singularity, Al, I tell you!

You are such a hot bitch that you make the bots go all gaga over you, BAP.

Those bots need a couple of weeks with my grade 7 grammar teacher, Lesley. That'll whip em into shape.

I've heard about similar ones, Kelly. They are a Paypal-based scam whereby they refuse to make payment, saying that the item was not received.

Lol! Surely you missed out on "they" Barb. :D
