Good Grief

Just when I thought

I'd received scam emails from every known scamming nation,

I get one this morning that's supposedly from MALAYSIA.


Sub: You won $2.5 Million Dollars ( yeah, right )
From:
To: undisclosed-recipients ( Gosh, there were THAT many of us?!?!? And I thought I was special...*rolls eyes* )

-----Inline Attachment Follows----- ( what does that even mean? )

You won $2.5 Million Dollars from the Malaysia Sweepstakes. ( Er, I don't recall entering any. And besides, the Malaysian sweepstakes pays in DOLLARS instead of RINGGIT? Very COOL. )

Yours Truly,
Goh Song Keng.( I'm still trying to make a joke out of this name, but I'm drawing a blank here )

I of course googled diff things in the email and lots of people had received a similar scam email, and of course scam emails are always hilarious, but this one made me kinda miffed coz I learned that other people had received a LONGER version of this crap, and I had received the truncated ( like as if i was less important ) version.

Good Grief.

most of us know it's a scam, but there's always one sucker out there. Oh else they wouldn't be sending this stuff out.

Hmm... let me think; Goh Song Keng.

Sounds better if it is spelled Goh Keng Song... which actually means means "Goh can sing".

No offends to all the Gohs out there.

I've been getting a ton of those lately too, but mine are all supposedly from the UK lottery which is weirder than _you_ getting Malaysian ones. :P I've never even been to the UK! :)

Stupid spammers.

Love that clipart though ;-)
