Spam, spam, spam, spam....

I guess you might have to be a Monty Python fan for that header. :) Anyway, I get enough spam mail for penis enhancers, cheap medications, yada yada, that don't have content or just have a link to click (like I'm going to ~ not!) so I thought I would just throw their emails here. I'll try to sort them out into categories as I go along...

Some of them might be legit but if you're spam mail, I don't care ~ spammers are just as unwelcome as scammers and decidedly suspect in my books.

I'll try to see where they come from through their IP addresses but, remember folks, they do everything from hide behind satellite systems to hijacking people's account. It may say they are mailing from France but it could be Outer Patagonia for all we know.

So How Come?

My photo
I have two blogs at the moment - Here Be Dragons which is devoted to rental scams primarily sourced through Craigslist although the proliferation of free ad sites has widened the hunting grounds. Many additions come from other sources (ie: blogs/anti-scam sites/online community ad sites) or are provided by people who want to share their experiences. There Ain't No Such Thing As A Free Lunch is for copies of scammail that I find in my mailboxes ~ sometimes I can't resist the odd acerbic comment but for the most part I post 'em because the more that people do, the fewer fools they get to gull. Dunno what to say about me that would be very interesting ~ I'm a granny who reads, gardens and crafts as the mood strikes me. :) I don't particularly care for the social predators on this planet and this blog is part of my way of saying so.
