    I just got a e-mail so stupid, old and fake looking it made me laugh, and I've had many worse over the time, so I decided to make this thread so we can share stupid spam e-mails we got!

    Mine is in the attached picture.

    EDIT: Whats even more stupid is that I have Google Mail, not MSN!

    Does that really end by addressing you as dude? If so, it must be real. All official MSN correspondence is written that way. :D

    I'd have to give my votes for "most annoying" spam e-mail to the political crap I sometimes get from people I know. I don't know what makes people think it's okay to shotgun that out to their entire address book; even when they have no idea what sort of political views any of them have. Without fail, the junk they send is 180 degrees off from my views.

    Honorable mentions have to go to the e-mail I get from the financial ministers of African nations, and offers to enhance my sex life.

    looks like you're using Gmail. i'm surprised that got through their spam filter.

    I get one of these every few weeks. Here's the latest one.

    Beware... maybe NSFW.

    I have my spam folder deleted every 30 days, so it's gone, but one of the funnier ones I got claimed that a pill would increase my *range* by 30%. Heh! Very helpful if I'm looking to deliver a pearl necklace from across the room! :)

    Sorry to bring up a old thread, but I just took a look at my spam folder!!!

    Now, just to make this clear, I have 1717 messages in there, and they all get deleted every 30 days.

    Look at when they were sent, thats not even 1 days worth as its the morning, and the other page has loads from yesturday!

    Im most scared at the one from Kelby Harkin (near the bottom).

    I had one e-mail that said if I took their pill, I would be able to use a certain part of the male anatomy as a pool cue.


    Um.....ouch? Sounds like that would hurt pretty badly.

    Thats the scary part, I NEVER give my e-mail address on the net, apart from a few forums and Engadget, and my address is hidden on the forums all the time!
