What are some unintentionally amusing emails or other messages that you've received?

Asked by Brian1946 (29532points) 1 month ago

Spam sent by those whose first language isn’t English, seems to be a major source of humor for me.

Here’s some spam that I got within the last 2 days:

The sender’s name has 9 letters, 81/2 of which are consonants: nghhg ytgh
Their message was: WINNINGNUNBERS

This one has an abundance of extraneous vowels:

Sender: пortооn LiifeLосk
Mess: your Noorton subscriiption has EXPlRED, reenew now
Was this one sent from the Netherlands? ;)

Sometimes I receive threats, that they will publish secretly taken webcam recordings of me pleasuring myself to some unseemly videos, unless I transfer some Bitcoin to them.
I naturally ignore them.

I got one of those too:

“Hey!

Unfortunately, I have some bad news for you.
Several months ago, I got access to the device you are using to browse the internet.
Since that time, I have been monitoring your internet activity.

Being a regular visitor of adult websites, I can confirm that it is you who is responsible for this.
To keep it simple, the websites you visited provided me with access to your data.

I’ve uploaded a Trojan horse on the driver basis that updates its signature several times per day, to make it impossible for antivirus to detect it. Additionally, it gives me access to your camera and microphone.
Moreover, I have backed-up all the data, including photos, social media, chats and contacts.

Just recently, I came up with an awesome idea to create the video where you cum in one part of the screen, while the video was simultaneously playing on another screen. That was fun!

Rest assured that I can easily send this video to all your contacts with a few clicks, and I assume that you would like to prevent this scenario.

With that in mind, here is my proposal:
Transfer the amount equivalent to 500 USD to my Bitcoin wallet, and I will forget about the entire thing. I will also delete all data and videos permanently.”

First of all, I don’t have a webcam, etc.

The worst part is, that there have to be a lot of people who fall for that scam, otherwise they would not do it.

You guys are more interesting than I am. The funnest thing I’ve gotten was a series of texts from someone assuming that the receiver of said texts was a spouse. The sender was adamant that the frogs were not as important as the receiver believed , and needed to be dealt with. Three texts in a short time on this subject, then a fourth, all caps, “ANSWER ME DAMMIT”
I didn’t see them til an hour or so later, when I texted back that it was a wrong number.
No more texts.
