please explain this craziness.

ok friends.
anyone with an email account gets spam.
add a blog to list of ways to communicate and you add to your spam-o-meter.
I have gotten pleas for money, people begging me to buy products, creepy spam, weird spam, odd spam...even funny spam.
(you can click on any of the images to enlarge them)

This kind of spam always ALMOST gets me...I'm always like...hmmm WAS I near a taco bell today? I really have to think about it.

Then sometimes the subject line makes me giggle...you know...when I add my own little joke to the end of it...

You had me until "of"...are they talking insurance fraud here?

Ummmm...anyone know how to get a hold of Chris Hansen?

Being illiterate is what suxx. More bees with honey friend...

Who needs exercise...the perfect way to lose 10-15 pounds.

Uhhh...is that really a job?

I got nothing. This stupefies me.

You don't say.


But this kind of spam really baffles me...no product selling, no random link.
Just really odd and slightly creepy.

I don't get it.
What is the point?

And I know it is spam...I have seen it before...word for word on other posts.

Any ideas?
Pin It!

I just got that same exact "your newer posts are better" spam from the 320 blog. I thought... that is the most random comment ever!!!! Especially on that blog. Seriously, what in the world is the point??????

Amber said...

Just had this on my blog the other day and I don't get it either.

Amanda said...

Not that I have any words of wisdom on this, but I've gotten them before as well. Slightly annoying, but yet weird at the same time! I hope someone figures it out....and soon!

Haha! I think I need more spam in my life.

Weird. I thought the spam that I've received was weird. Yours beats mine- hands down.

Sandra said...

I don't get exciting and strange spam like that. That's a great collection you've got there.
Thanks for making me smile.

That first one about seeing you by the taco bell is freaky. I had to put comment moderation up on my blog because I was getting creepy comments last week. Hope whoever is sending you these stops soon :)

Hey, a lot of time these types of spam have to do with spreading malware. Check out 'http://www.squidoo.com/preventmalware' for a bit more info.
btw Crystal, I've been reading your blog for about 6 months now and I love it! I look forward to checking my reader every morning to see what you're up to, I love your style and one day when I have more than 5 mins of spare time I'm going to start my own photoblog. Thanks for being an inspiration for so many!

I got that exact same spam (as the last one) on my blog a few days ago, on an old post, from anonymous. I thought it was weird, but wouldn't have known it was spam if you hadn't said it. Huh, strange!!!!

Crystal... I am cracking up here that last comment is SPAM also I just got the SAME exact wording {from anonymous} on my New Year post, I was going to delete it, and was telling Elise about it, we were cracking up and she thought it would be funny to post a comment under it saying I agree with anonymous... hahahaha Anyway it stayed, but it is strange since there is no link or anything...

I've won the British lottery like 37 times now. Heavens, I must be lucky. Now if I could only win the American lottery without ever buying a ticket.

And I keep getting offers for Ritalin. Someone has me pinned...

Haha my email to you is probably buried in the 225 spam emails. I promise it's a nice one though.

Elise said...

Spam sucks!! The edible kind and the computer kind. I got the same one as the last one. So did Jenny and I had to joke about it. But, she already said that.
Fun stuff!!

I agree w/ Jenn--I don't begin to know the hows, etc. but it has to do w/ malware/cookie tracking, etc. You open it, you read it, it possibly opens your IP from you PC to them and then BAM--lots more cookies/spam/bugs, etc.

Who has TIME for that stuff? I always wonder if people make MONEY being "cookie-ers" and "Spammers?" Grrrrr....
