i mean, c'mon spammers! if you are gonna raise an average joe's hopes up about some lottery, at least make it believable.

here's an email i got today:

You've won 891,934.00 pounds Send Necessary information:name,age,country

so let's completely ignore the absolute lack of grammatical correctness in the email....the reader is still like... WTF o_O
you are giving me 891,934 pounds (where did that number come from anyway?) and you won't even care to explain who you are? where is the money coming from? some secret russian bank account? C'MON! are we both even talking about the same country's pounds here?

if you are sending me a spam email make it sound good. make me feel as if i have been contacted by an organization, not some Nigerian school kid.

why did i make this completely absurd and useless post? i don't know...i just wanted to say this :p
I don't wanna be rude but ... don't you think guys it's like hundred time when such story come up ? we know everyone that's just a damn nigerian poor scam type ... thanks ... was discussed like hundreds of times before.
They don't need to try. Anyone who's dumb enough will fall for it anyway.
If the emails didn't work, they wouldn't send them. They prey on people's greed and desperation...and trust me, there are a lot of greedy and desperate people out there.
Think about it. If they send out 1,000,000 emails per day and get one conversion every four days, that's like $5,000 in their pockets. Over $1,000 per day.
