Spam fun

Here's one for your amusement:

Att,

I am peter-wong from Bank hang seng hong kong, I have a late client funds
of $8 USD in my bank and i need you to front as beneficiary,if interested
contact me for more details on Email:peter_wong016@yahoo.com.hk



Eight dollars? EIGHT DOLLARS? How magnanimous of him. And not only that, this thing isn't aimed - even just nominally, with my own name in the To: field - at me. It's broad aim scattershot - to "undisclosed recipients". Just how many people do you expect me to share those eight bucks WITH, buster?

(And I just love that first email address coming from the Czech Republic, but you're to contact him at yahoo.com at Hong Kong (I suppose to make it seem a tad more legit for those who aren't very observant about email headers...)

Do these people ever stop to THINK?
