One of the bits of spam which is doing the rounds at the moment is the “I’m a bored girl and I want to chat with you” nonsense. I haven’t quite worked out what the purpose of these messages is from the spammer’s perspective, and I intend on replying to one just to see what happens.
Anyway…I know that all of the names that go along with these messages are automatically generated, but you would think the spammers would at least choose female names…I feel very sorry for any girl named “Darrel Proctor” or “Simon Schafer”.
On the other hand, perhaps I am receiving the only legitimate emails of this type, in which case I’m hardly surprised that these girls named Darrel and Simon are having a hard time finding men to chat with in the real world.
