I’d prefer dating scam spam…

100% safe…since there’s ususally a photo included, but you can’t have it all, another Anghela is hard to find. So this mail here (the image on the right was not included) is just a generic 419 scam – except that it’s not from Nigeria but South Africa (or at least claims to be) –, promising a multi-million sum for a pretended money transfer.

And, alas, the senders translated their English (which is maybe not completely perfect, and at any rate quite complicated for automatic translation) automatically into German, making it somewhat funny – in German, that is, so this is not really something funny for you English readers, sorry… Let me just mention that their statement about this business being “100% safe” turned into “100%-Safe”, i.e. a 100% safe/vault, hence my little image on the right.

Their English original (which they also included) isn’t really worth reading, but for the sake of completeness, I included it here:

    Vielleicht erwartet er von Gott ’ne Antwort – aber ein Gott wird kaum Millionen brauchen…

All inputs are optional. The e-mail address won't be published nor shared.

  • Moderation: Comments from first-time commentators must be approved manually before they appear.
  • Behave yourself! No insults, no illegal content, etc.! Should go without saying, don't you agree...?
  • Website: I don't mind blogs with ads, but purely commercial links are not welcome and will be deleted. Just like pure spam comments.
  • E-mail notification on new comments: You will have to activate this function once with a link in an automatically sent confirmation mail. These notifications can be disabled again with the link in every mail, of course.
  • Twitter: If you got a Twitter account, you can enter your Twitter name (with or without the @, doesn't matter) which will then be displayed next to any comment (including old ones) that contain the same e-mail address. (Which also means that you must fill in that e-mail field.)
