I’m rich!

Folks, don’t be shocked, but it seems that the U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki Moon takes personal interest in my well-being. Here is an extract from the message that appeared in my email just yesterday. And yes, it claims to be from Mr. Secy General himself :

From: BAN KI MOON <unitednationsdaa@virgilio.it>
Date: Sun, Jun 7, 2009 at 6:02 PM
Subject: Valued contract ammount ($US32.7M)
To: 

With the recent instruction from International Community and the World Bank on
your contract payment Do forward to us your informations for the urgent
transfer,Valued contract ammount ($US32.7M)

CONGRATULATIONS!

MR. BAN KI-
MOON,

SECRETARY GENERAL.

Two things. First, I was left wondering if the repeated spelling error on the word “amount” was intentional given the honourable man’s nationality. Second, spam is getting pretty entertaining these days – just take a closer look before you delete yours and you might end up agreeing with me.

  1. Indeed, spam can be entertaining 🙂 Makes me wonder if spam companies employ some really talented creative writers to pen these gems. Should remember now to peruse through my spam more carefully – there could be a few laughs hiding there 😉
