Crazy Emails Since Joining WordPress…

with 2 comments

I don’t know if anyone else has had this problem, but since creating my blog here, I have received some pretty wacky emails.  Now, they’re obviously scams, but they’re pretty funny.  For example, here is one I received this morning:

 

Hii (*********@yahoo.in )
I saw your profile and became much interested in you.
My name is Miss Maureen.
please, contact me with this email adress,so that i can send you my picture for you to know how i look like.
Here is the email adress ( *********@yahoo.in )
Remember the distance or colour does not matter but love embraces every thing.
Take very good care of yourself i am expecting your immidiate and urgent respond to my mail as soon as you get this massage
Yours Maureen.

 

Ummm….yeah.  Here’s one I received on September 30:

 

Hello My Dear,

I was going through profiles and i pick interest on you i will like us to become friends and later discuss more of our future here is my address ( *********@yahoo.com ) it will be my pleasure to receive your response soon.
regards
Glory

Here’s one from August 28:

Hello,

How are you and how is your work? i hope that all is well with you, My name is miskateduga,I was  browsing on internet i saw your mail and profile and i dacide to write to you so that we exchange our pictures, and we may become partner.
Remember the distance  colour and age does not matter what matters is the love we share with each other.
i am waiting to hear from you soon.

Regards mis kate

Where do these people get the idea that I’m going to reply?  I’m not stupid enough to give any information to them, and hopefully my blog doesn’t suggest that I am.  I’m curious to know if anyone else has gotten similar emails, or if anyone knows how to stop them.  And these women obviously have not realized that I’m not a lesbian, or they would not be sending me this stuff.  I have gotten many others, but these were few of the first I found in my inbox.  To me, these all sound like they could be the same person, but I have no proof of that.  Anyway.  Leave a comment if you’ve gotten anything similar, and tell me what your response was!

  1. Hard luck with this one. I did receive a few weird e-mails, one saying that “Dear Snigdha, I love your work, and hope to teach the same values to my children. I’m twenty-four and currently residing in Poland. I expect a prompt reply, considering the intensity of my emotions. Reply soon, Mr. Luceus.”
    I mean can you believe that?!
    My blog is all about how much I hate love and hate phony people , which is certainly not something ppl want to ‘teach’ their children [certainly a good way to go, though].
    People go crazy , I say. :P
