Yes folks, it is True!! Normally I am always complaining about Spam, Spamming and Spammers but this guy has gotten me to almost fall in love with him and his technique...Shoot, if I had the money I'd probably give it to him!!! You know how you are always getting those Spam mails where people act like they are your long lost best friend or relative and you know darn good and well that you have Never met them before. And even if you think: "well maybe possibly I once knew them and I am just forgetting", you KNOW you have NEVER known anyone THAT sappy!! The ones that call you Dear Friend, or Dearly Beloved, (sounds like you're about ready to jump over the broom or something)!! Well this guy has my upmost respect...even though he is a Spammer!! I saw his name in my inbox a couple of days ago and thought: "oh no, not another one I have to throw away as spam"!! but for some reason I happened to open it, I don't know why, I just did, and when I did I was truly amazed! His spiel was short and sweet! All it said was: Look over my business plan and send me $250,000.00!!! (his business plan was in an attachment which of course I did not open)! Now how much simpler can you get it?? He didn't waste my time trying to wrack my brain wondering if I knew Dearly Beloved that was dying and wanted to give me her $500 Million when she kicked the bucket! Just give me your money!!! I always said I never met a Spammer that I liked...until Now!!! How about you? Any great Spammer stories out there? Or maybe a tip on a really good one and you want to warn people off? Or Anything else you would like to write about Spam, Spamming and Spammers??

Hey greenie, Where have you been? I've missed you. Am I not getting notices of your posts? I am so over these spammers. I had 3 in my email this morning. I find it hysterical when they try to act so professional and yet they can't spell or get the grammer correct. Your guy must think his direct approach works. I'm not buying your attraction greenie. I've only posted a couple on Survivor. I plan to post soon. Hugsssss leenie

Hi Leenie!! I was just this second going to come here and PM you and then saw this response...Great minds think alike don't they?? ;) I know I haven't been around much but everything is so busy for me these days I just don't seem to be able to get here very often!! Well you really shouldn't be buying my attraction too much, the only reason that I wrote this was because I liked his style! Straight and to the point, he lets you know up front that he wants your money instead of all of the extra junk that the others go through!! I'm like you, I have to laugh at them too when I have the time to waste on them, not only are they Spammers but they are Spammers that have obviously never gone to school and learned good grammar!! I think if I was going to try to milk someone of everything that they have I would at least be professional enough to learn how to put a sentence together so I Might get some fool to believe me, either that or give someone that has gone to school a couple of bucks to put a sentence together for me!! I've missed you a lot also Leenie and thanks for responding! Lots of Hugs!! (I did see your post on survivor but I don't know anything about the show)!!

Obviously I can't stand them at all either but if I have to have a Spam mail then I would rather have one that is honest and tells me he's going to try to milk me out of my money than have one of the Dear Beloved ones that's going to send me $500 million! And I will definitely tell him to keep his hands to himself...thanks for the warning and... Thanks a lot for your response!

That spammer's just brilliant. Straight to the point, and doesn't want to fool your brain. I don't think he really wants the money (though on second thought, everybody would), but he doesn't expect it. Maybe he just wants to spread a wonderful joke :P.

I think he was pretty smart too, like I told someone else you may be surprised just how many people may go for it being so straight and to the point!! Could be a joke I suppose although I don't know why anyone would waste their time but someone out there may be terribly bored!!! Thanks so much for responding!

Perhaps God had meant you to read it to say that spammers have a great sense of humor! You should hang-out with them if you're depressed and wanted to laugh your butt off!

Well they do say "The Lord works in mysterious ways"!!! But you may be right!! Maybe I should try to find some Spammers clubs, I'm sure there must be some out there, and hang for a while, I could use a good laugh once in a while!! And speaking of That...Thank you for providing me with a good laugh today!! Thanks for responding!!!

Really straightforward that guy.. He didn't even used subtle tactics to somehow make you give him your money. I guess that's how it is these days. People tend to get really impatient when it comes to money. Look at the bright side, at least he's really frank and straight to the point, hehe.

True and that's what I liked about the e-mail it was frank and to the point! I still don't like Spam and Spammers but if I have to deal with them then I would rather deal with ones like him instead of those others that I Really can't stand!! Thanks for the response!

I find that a lot Spammers give you long stories about how they are going to give you something like extreme amounts of money, $500 Million or something and then somehow swindle you out of your money, but I have never had a Spammer approach me and just say give me your money. I suppose you just had to be there. Thanks for your response!

Now if only the spammers weren't so secretive and use an email address and IP address that could be traced. That would be a spammer that I would like.

Tell me about it! I find it so hard to understand in this day and age when they can catch people for murder 50 years after the fact and in different countries that they can't somehow, someway come up with something that would read through all of the false information these people have and catch them! Thanks a lot for the response!

Hi Gel, Well he was pretty direct instead of all the waffle the others give but he is still a spammer at the end of the day so I wouldn't say I would like him, respect for the no nonsense approach I guess but like you I wouldn't have opened attachment and it would be filed in the spam. Hope all is well with you. Huggles. Ellie :D

Hi Ellie!!!! Oh I have missed you so much I was going to e-mail you this week, I guess we've both been busy and just keep missing each other! I agree, he is still a Spammer but I did like the direct approach, better for someone to tell me hey throw your money down the drain and give it to me than someone call me Dear Beloved I want to give you $500 million and then take my money!! And I am like you I can just imagine what kind of junk would come out of that attachment!! It is so good to see you, hope you and your little one are well, take care and of course: Thanks for responding!!
