Spammers - Where do They Come Up With This Stuff?

Lets face it we all get spammed and it drives us nuts!
If it were not for folders, I would probably NEVER find
my "legitmate" email. I probably do NOT get as much
spam as most people do, but when I do get it, boy do
I get it! I especially love it when people come by and
spam my paid list building site, little do they know that
I have several ways of finding out WHO they are ;o)

When it comes right down to it though, sometimes you
really have to laugh at some of the garbage they send.
According to spammers not only do I need viagra, I also
need an enlargement for a body part I don't even have.
I some how also managed to request this information at
one of their sites, not once, but 200 freakin' times.

We all have our incoherent days, but I think I would at
least get the drift after the first 100 times. And really
now, like I am going to send a spammer my credit card
info in an email! Like I said, we all have our incoherent
days, but I am sure as heck NOT that darn incoherent
at ANY time. Even if a web site doesn't use a "secure"
server -I'm NOT buying and there's no two ways about
it, let alone in an email.

Seriously, like how stupid do these people really think
we are? "Laurie how would you like to harvest millions
of email addresses a day?" Whoo-Hoo! I better jump
right on that one, so my web host can shut me down
and I can lose EVERYTHING I've worked so hard for in
the last 3 plus years. Yeah I will get right on that one.

"I saw your site and got your email." Really? So what
did it look like? Because last time I checked there was
NO site for that email address you moron. And if there
was - WHO said you could email me?

What really makes me laugh is in the body of the email
it reads, "Would you like to start a home business?" You
just told me you went to my site, obviously you would
know I ALREADY have a business! In fact, I have four
of them so you may want to head back there that way
you can learn the REAL way to market online.

This last little episode really gave me a good chuckle, I
got spammed by some person claiming I requested the
information (a private email address). So, I reported it
to the program owner and to the autoresponder service
that they were using (which is owned by a good friend
of mine). The program owner allowed the person to state
their "case" and forwarded me a copy of their response.

This was their reply - "I'm not certain where I received
that email address from. I used to buy email addresses,
but I don't do that anymore. I have been marketing now
for over two years and NEVER had a spam complaint, so
I'm really appalled at this acusation. I have had 4 of my
ISP accounts shut down, because maybe the people
were offended by the ad copy. The person who sent you
this complaint MUST be someone I have previously been
in contact with because that is the only way to get on
my list."

Sheesh, I wonder WHO the LIAR is in this case? There's
nothing like a contradictive statement to hang yourself
out to dry. In this case the person should have just came
right out and said, "Yeah, I harvested her email address",
instead of talking in circles and digging themselves into a
DEEPER hole. The great Homer Simpson once said, "DOH"!
(but hey at least he admits to doing something STUPID!)
