Well, I have not checked my email spam folder in a while.
I liken the spam folder to reading tabloid headlines in the supermarket checkout. Much to my children’s embarrassment, I always find them amusing.
I do like to read them just to see what is being offered.
Here is a good one. The guy does not mention how he got me. Yet, he wants me to give him all my information:
My name is Andrew Leggett.I run a small Art company in North London(United Kingdom)with my wife (Julie). I have sold my goods all around the world.I am always facing serious difficulties when it comes to selling my goods to Americans, they are always offering to pay with MONEY ORDER, which is difficult for me to cash here in London, United Kingdom,So i am looking for a representative in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA who will be working for me as a part time worker and i will be
willing to pay 10% for every transaction, which wouldn’t affect your present state of work, All you will be doing is to receive payments from my customers in the states inform of a money order or traveler check,Cash it and deduct 10% out of it then send the remaining 90% back to us via WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER.
Note:Be rest assured that you will not spend a dime out of your personal money.If you are interested,get back to me with the listed information below
#Your full name: as it will be on the money order
#Your full home address: where the payment will be sent to
#direct or cell contact telephone number
#Your present occupation
#have you receive a job offer like this before

Insurance and delivery charges have been paid for, but the only fee remaining is the security safe keeping fee of $98 US Dollars only, which you will be required to pay then before delivery.
