Funny bit of spam

I’d like to say that this one message brought me enough laughter to balance out the anger I have from all the other spam I get in my RPGC-inbox. It still falls short… but it does help.

<code>Hello,

I’m a time traveler stuck here in 2003. Upon arriving here my dimensional warp generator stopped working. I trusted a company here by the name of LLC Lasers to repair my Generation 3 52 4350A watch unit, and they fled on me. I am going to need a new DWG unit, prefereably the rechargeable AMD wrist watch model with the GRC79 induction motor, four I80200 warp stabilizers, 512GB of SRAM and the menu driven GUI with front panel XID display.

I will take whatever model you have in stock, as long as its received certification for being safe on carbon based life forms.

In terms of payment:
I dont have any Galactic Credits left. Payment can be made in platinum gold or 2003 currency upon safe delivery of unit.

Please transport unit in either a brown paper bag or box to below coordinates on Monday August 4th at (exactly 3:00pm) Eastern Standard Time on the dot. A few minutes prior will be ok, but it cannot be after. If you miss this timeframe please email me.

Latitude N 42.47935 & Longitude W 071.17355 and the Elevation is 119.
WARNING: DO NOT ATTEMPT TO TRANSPORT ITEM BY REGULAR MEANS OF TELEPORTATION. THEY ARE MONITORING AND WILL REDIRECT THE SIGNAL!!
I DO NOT CARE HOW YOU HAVE TO GET IT HERE, JUST DO IT IN A WAY THAT NO SPYING EYES WILL POSSIBLY BE ABLE TO REDIRECT THE TRANSFERENCE. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU BE ABLE TO MONITOR THE TRANSFER.

Although those coordinates are a secure guarded area, these channels through email are never secure. Unfortunately it is the only form of communication I have right now.

After unit has been sent please email me at: info@federalfundingprogram.com
with payment instructions. Do not reply directly back to this email.

Thank You</code>

Sadly I do believe that some people may fall for it. You’ve got give the person credit for originality though.

Wow. That was an entire load of shit :slight_smile:

But, I have to admit to being curious…

Where do those coordinates lead, anyway?

Oh ho ho, so that’s where you’ve been hiding, Elt Sizyx…alas, I am afraid this voyage shall have been your last!

…well, actually, it’ll have been your first…cuz, y’know…time traveling…aww screw it presses a big red button

That’s just stupid :stuck_out_tongue:

Ha!! How lame!

Man, you have to admire this guy’s creativity…

…and pity his stupidity. :stuck_out_tongue:

It would be so fucking cool if it were true though. :stuck_out_tongue:

And you’re positive this is spam, because? You never know. Could be a guy from the future, or a crazy guy who thinks he’s from the future.

But anyway, a funny spam. You don’t see a lot of those these days.

I really need to get spamfilters working on my mailserver.

He’s somewhere in Europe, possibly France, if these coordinates are correct. X2K, do I get a reward for helping to track him down?

France? It says 71 degrees West., France is more like 10 degrees west to 20 degrees east. And a bit farther north as well. It’s somewhere in the Atlantic, somewhere between New York and Philadelphia latitude wise. Check a globe or a map. I kind guessed it would be nonsense when they included the elevation as 119 feet. Besides, you don’t use decimals for map coordinates, you use minutes and seconds. I seriously hope none of you believe that this is real after considering what the instructions for payment are. It’s a good joke though.

Reads again. damn my faulty buttoning. I muts have inputted the wrong numbers.

Who the man is, I say we ignore the message as a hoax.

Well, DUH, it’s a hoax, but where’s the fun in IGNORING it?
