How can I trust you after seeing this picture?

Post by specious_reasons »

From "MelyssaStepler" in my Spam folder.
Hi danskylor04@[redacted],
I got you busted bro. You won't deny the obvious now. Check the photo in attachment .
Attached was "photo.zip"

Now, I don't know anybody named that, and my email isn't danskylor04, but I have to admit it gave me a micro burst of adrenaline, even though I spotted it as a fraud, and I don't think microscope photos would make me untrustworthy.

Right, the zip file contains a Trojan Horse application.
Similar schemes have popped up on all the social-networking sites, for instance under the headline "OMG look what you're doing in this movie haha".

And yet, an amazing number of people will download and open the zip.

I always found it amusing seeing who actually clicks on those, "Can you believe what Mylie Cyrus did? Shocking pics!" Facebook trojans. Things you learn about people....

It was really amusing the time that the "Anna Kournikova" thing was passing around AIM.

I worked the helpdesk at an accounting firm, and it was fun to hear the excuses, seeing that you absolutely could not get the virus unless you "clicked here to see Anna Kournikova in a bikini".

"The message popped up on my screen, and I didn't do anything, and all of a sudden all these windows were opening."
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Just got this one, from "RosamondKlare"

"She put all your private photos on FACEBOOK!!"
Hi [redacted, not my email],
but someone sent me this picture on facebook, in attachment. That chick looks a LOT like your girlfriend. I really think you should talk to her, I'd kill her if I were you....
I'm not sure I get the grammar on this one. She put all your private pics, on Facebook, but here's one of her? Maybe it's supposed to be intentionally vague, generated by a non-English speaking person, or just crappy grammar.

The spam I get from "work at home" scams seem to have better grammar overall.
