    I mean the actual kind.

    Apparently a US soldier wants a (random) Canadian Citizen to help him abscond with millions of dollars from Iraq:
    Shoud I trust him? o:

    If he had email he could contact back to base and ask for an evac duee to suicide bombers and his home country would proudly collect the money, dunno about you but in the middle of a war I wouldn't sit down and compose an email XD

    (you realize that most of the war is spent waiting around for something to happen, right?)

    I always get a whole bunch of stuff with random kanji (err... japanese characters, Firefox spellcheck doesn't know that word) in the subject line. Or at least I think they're random. And a name, Perkins something. If it was in any other context than my spam folder it might almost be kind of creepy.

    lol, all of this

    pretty sure we all know what kanji is here.

    don't have to explain it to us, thank you very much

    i could sound just like you if I wanted to and believe me that wouldn't be pleasant for any of us :p

    anyway, ontopic: i remember recieving an email from someone who tried to bullshit me that I knew them quite well, but otherwise it was the same "send $500 and we'll reroute $1.5Million into your bank account" crap. I don't get much spam.

    Actually, I was just checking if I had horribly mangled the word to the point of unreadability. What's your problem anyway? What did I ever do to you?

    You didn't. You can trust EVERYONE on these forums to correct you if you make a mistake like that, lol
    it's not really your fault, something about you just rubs me the wrong way

    don't worry too much about it, I'm kinda prejudiced against new users xD

    it kinda feels like you're trying too hard to fit in here, so much so that you stick out. just, go with the flow, y'know? be natural.

    LMAO

    but yeah, I don't get much spam.
    Mostly spam with titles like:

    Must Watch Videos - SNL's Andy Samberg dies for Anne Hathaway just to be the MTV Movie Awards host! and more...

    strategically lettered so your inbox shows "Must Watch Videos - SNL's Andy Samberg dies..." to try and make you click it.

    It might be possible that someone used your email when they registered or something, since that message looks like it might be legit (I wouldn't really know though, I've never had a blizzard account).

    No, those e-mails are fake. He must have put his Battle.net e-mail account in a different website, thus spambots make e-mails to that account saying that their WoW account was banned for some reason, and then they give you a fake link to a login screen forcing you to put your information in it. I've gotten those e-mails a million times on my old e-mail account, and my WoW account has never been phased. (It has been hacked before, but not by clicking the links in the fake e-mails.)

    I could have sworn I used to get e-mails on how to get the best orgasms for women before.

    Rawr's was hilarious

    Here's one of mine

    PLEASE REPLY ME IMMEDIATELY
    I AM MRS MIMI PHILIP
    BILL AND EXCHANGE MANAGER.
    BANK OF AFRICA (BOA)
    OUAGADOUGOU , BURKINA FASO .


    Dear Friend.

    CONFIDENTIAL


    I will like you to help me, in receiving of this fund into your Bank Account .However; it's just my urgent need for foreign partner that made me to contact you for this transaction. I am the manager of bill and exchange at the foreign remittance Department of BANK OF AFRICA (B.O.A) here in Ouagadougou , Burkina Faso. In my department we discovered an abandoned sum of (US$27.2 Million dollars) in an account that belongs to one of our foreign Customer (MR. PAUL LOUIS from Paris, France) who died along with His entire family in July 2003 in a plane crash.

    I am afraid if this money stays in our bank without claim for long period of time, our government will step in because
    The Banking laws here does not allow such huge amount of money to stay
    Dormant for more than 8years. And you will be receiving this money into your Bank account within 10 or 14 banking days.

    The Banking law and guideline here stipulates that if such money remained unclaimed after Eight years an above, the money will be transferred into the Bank treasury as unclaimed fund. I agree that 30% of this money will be for you as foreign partner in respect to the provision of a foreign account, and while 70%would be for me.

    If you agree to my business proposal, further details of the transfer will be forwarded to you as soon as I receive your return mail. Make sure you keep this transaction as your top secret and make it confidential till we receive the fund into the account that you will provide to the Bank. Don't disclose it to any body, because the secrecy of this transaction is as well as the success of it, have a great day.

    Place contact me immediately
    Yours faithfully.
    Mrs Mimi Philip

    Subject: FW: A powerful prayer

    This is neat. innumerable; but I should only mention a few of the chief. God bless. Poor girl, she has so much to forget that it is no wonder that sleep,

    Each and everyone one of us are going through tough times right now, but God is getting ready to bless you in a way that only He can. Keep the faith.
    My instructions were to pick four people that I wanted God to bless, and I picked you. Please pass this to at least (4) people you want to be blessed and a copy back to me.
    This prayer is powerful, and prayer is one of the best gifts we receive.
    There is no cost but a lot of rewards. Let's continue to pray for one another.

    The prayer:
    Father, I ask You to bless my friends, relatives and those that I care deeply for, who are reading this right now. Show them a new revelation of your love and power. Holy Spirit, I ask You to minister to their spirit at this very moment. Where there is pain, give them your peace and mercy. Where there is self-doubt, release a renewed confidence through your grace. Where there is need, I ask you to fulfill their needs. Bless their homes, families, finances, their goings and their comings. In Jesus' precious name. Amen.

    noise and astonishment of the people, at seeing me rise and walk,

    You must be brave and strong, and help me through the horrible task. with Flimnap the high-treasurer, whose enmity against you is
