How I Handle Email Spam

Posted by dakeeper on December 17, 2006

Dear Mr. Clinton,

Thanks for your mail but unfortunately you didn’t response well, infact this story is the gospel truth and I would be pleased if could arrange and fly to Ghana and meet me face to face.

Because I did not like the way you responded, because this is not a 419 scandal as you may think.

Thanks for your time being and hope to hear favourably from you soon.

  1. I love your response – so eloquent, so poetic, so appropriate. But I really love the fact that they wrote back to you. As if you’d suddenly realize that YOU were wrong. After all, she specifically wrote “this is not a 419 scandal,” so it must be legit. LOL
