Some days I just love spammers. Who here remembers that post last year about the people who had scattered traffic cones across Coranderrk Street? Well a spammer found it yesterday by googling “traffic cones au” and subsequently sent me the following email.

from Jerry Johnson revjerryjohnson500@yahoo.com
to samuel@samuelgordonstewart.com

Dear Valued Customer,
Hello This is Rev Jerry Johnson and I want to purchase 500 quantities of Traffic Cones with it’s description as follow,

Material: Vinyl
Width: 11-1/2″
Depth: 11-1/2″
Height: 18″

Let me hear back from you with good price on this product and Also advice me on the forms of payment that you accept. Hope to hear from you soon.

Best regards,
Rev Jerry Johnson.

Things is, based on the headers, this email was actually sent through Yahoo webmail. Either the spammers are becoming less efficient and manually sending message in order to get more of them past spam filters, or somebody just decided to continue the fun of that blog post.

Either way, it amused me considerably when I saw it.

Samuel
