Sometimes I find SPAM hilarious.  Like this gem:

Subject: Dead or Alive?

Usually i don’t do this but this is the only way I could contact you for now, I want you to be very careful about this and keep this secret with you until I make out space for us to see. You have no need of knowing who I am or where i am from. I know this may sound very surprising to you but it’s the situation. I have been paid some ransom in advance to terminate you with some reasons listed to me by my employer. It’s someone I believe you call a friend, I have followed you closely for a while now and have seen that you are innocent of the accusations leveled against you. Do not contact the police or try to send a copy of this to them, because if you do, I will know, and I might be pushed to do what I have been paid to do.Besides, this is the first time I turn out to be a betrayer in my job. I took pity on you and your family. That is why I have made up my mind to help you. Reply me as soon as you get this mail or i will be left with no choice than to terminate you.

If you are willing to help yourself and not make your family attend your untimely death reply me asap.

There is no time to waste..


Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad..


The funny thing is that someone sent this to my boss, who doesn’t really have “family,” just one grown daughter.  Foiled, Ibn-La’Ahad!
