A Spam Sandwich – Hold The Sterling, Please

I got this in my mail just now. Luckily enough Gmail recognised it for what it is. Still, for a wee second I was almost (but not quite) interested.

If any of you feel like chancing your arm and somehow get lucky, just get me a ticket to the States. You can hang on to the rest.

  1. I hate with a capital “H”, spam. Evidentally, I have esquires and estate lawyers who are looking for me as the long, lost (fill in the relationship) of (fill in the country)’s multimillionaire. Problem is, if one of those are real I will fricking kick my own arse (nod to my Irish lad) for automatically deleting it. Fitting post as I blocked and reported all my Twitter spammers today!

  2. So James, you’re a millionaire?!
    Pfft!! HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!
    Those things are just as bad as those,’How would you like to earn some extra cash?’ bullshit that they keep on sending me. The problem with those fucking emails is that they are forever trying to get people to engage in the ‘adult film’ (aka PORN) business.
    Don’t have them in the UK just yet? Well, just you wait, they’ll be there shortly.

    What, pray tell, would you do in the States, James?


  3. Sweet!
    Just make sure you bring a kilt along…


  4. If I had a nickel for every piece of spam that promised me wealth and untold riches, I’d have . . .oh, I don’t know, a lot of nickels, I guess! Anyway, I never ever open any of those notices. BUT – just by opening your little post, it sent me the same notice!

    YAY! We’ll be zillionaires together! $$$$$$$$$$££££££££££

    I can see it all now. . .

  5. JM ~ Should I get you a one way ticket to the states???

    This reminded me of an earlier post I wrote about SPAM: http://nrhatch.wordpress.com/2010/08/01/s-p-a-m/

    And also . . . Monty Python. SPAM-A-LOT.
    And SPAM sandwiches. SPAM ~ SPAM ~ SPAM ~ SPAM

    As Andi says, don’t forget the kilt!

  6. Dear, dear James.
    Don’t worry about Immigration.
    I know a lot of people and there are a few who owe me a favor or two…


  7. At least you get the “spam” that could be interesting…They think because my name is Linnie that I’m a guy….so I get the” Russian girl wants American guy” and anything and everything to enlarge what I don’t have…lol

  8. I too have scores of generous people wanting to give me money, aren’t we lucky? Let’s hire a chartered flight and travel together. Who are we going to visit first? I say Nancy, Florida here we come!

  9. I got that email. It sounds legit. I’m doing it. However, just to make sure it’s real… I’m tracing the message I got to see where the sender is. If it is fake, I will tell you the info as I proceed forward.
