I get more and more of these lame 419 scams lately and they completely bypass gmail’s spam filter. WTF? Is it really that hard to trigger the few key catch phrases these guys use? All those letters are almost exactly the same.
Anyway, this one cracked me up:
Dear Friend,I am Mr Ming Yang of Hang seng bank,hong kong.i have a buisness proposal for you,of ($24,500,000.00) if interested get back to me vie this email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
A 149 scam in 28 words – this guy didn’t waste his time. I really don’t think you can get this any shorter. Maybe he could replace get back to me vie this email with reply to but that’s about it. Heh… That’s what I call succinct and to the point scam bait. No sappy story about dying husband with cancer, no long winded lottery winning notification – just business. :mrgreen:
