Replying to Email Scams


It seems no matter how many times I mark certain emails as spam, they still make their way into my inbox. I’m not sure if the spam filter is working like it is supposed to or what, but, I’ve decided to try something a little different for a while.

I’m going to reply to a few of these things just to see what happens. Here are two standard, cut and paste replies I’m going to use, just for giggles:

Anytime I get an email with the subject of “Did you get my last email?” I’m going to reply with this:

“Yes, we disposed of the bodies as you instructed.”

If it’s one of those Nigerian type emails asking for money upfront in exchange for a bazillion dollars later, I’m responding with this:

“Please put 10 million U.S. dollars (large bills only) between a toasted English Muffin (no butter) and have Jiminy Cricket deliver it to me at the junction of I-81 and I-77. In exchange, I will give you my Mother’s secret recipe for Tator-Tot casserole.”

I’ll let you know if anything works out.
