SPAM as a foreign trade

[ #12922 ]
This tidbit appeared in my mailbox this morning:

ATTN: SIR/MADAM
I understand that this letter will be of great surprise to you ,Especially as it comes from a stranger .I am mr.Samuel Savimbi from the republic of Angola.The Nigeria chamber of commerce and Industry intimated me about your credibility.

Spamassassin is doing a very good job of stopping a great deal of the spam I get these days (Thanks!). The little bit that does gets through is on the verge of being ever-so-slightly humorous. :-)

  • Unfortunately a Nigerian spam slipped into my inbox this morning because SpamAssassin somehow flagged it as BAYES_01, giving it a negative score. I still haven't figured that one out.
  • Yes but unfortunately it also flagged the notification of this use Perl article as SPAM too. *grin*.
