Musings and Meanderings
Thursday, October 14, 2004
Ok I want to put a bunch of caveats here becuase our civil liberties are so restricted now a days with that crazy bunch of neo cons running the government. Since sooner or later Ashcrofts storm troopers are going to scan this site for subversive information I feel it is paramount that I put these disclaimers here:
1) The following is a copy of a spam email I got.
2) I do not support nor do I offer any of the things in this e-mail below.
3) I have never given aid to arms dealers.
4) I removed any contact information so no storm troopers get confused.
5) The intent of this blog post is for amusement only.
Ok get the message Mr. shred the constitution Attorney General?
On to the comedy bits:
hello our potential customer
We would like to introduce our newborn site, where you can shop around most wanted and needed items in your life. Our weapon section has wide range of hard-to-find machine guns, silencers, armour-piercing ammos and others.
First of all, let\'s check our 3 top-selling items:
1. Russian surface-to-air missle SA-14 \"Gremlin\" (upgraded analog of SS-16 \"Strela\") from our supplies in Kazakhstan.
Due to high demand, it takes about 4 weeks to backorder that item. Weight is 10,2 kg., length - 1427 mm. You can make a huge party and you can have tons of fun launching your \"Gremlin\” with your buddies.
2. Israeli best-selling submachine-gun \"Tavor\" 5.56\" (upgraded analog of 7.65\" \"Uzi\"), comes with 2 full clips of standard ammo + bonus one clip of armour-piercing ammo.
3. Russian booby trap made in 5 versions:
- a bottle of Jim Beam (200 grammes of C4 inside),
- a can of Budlight beer (150 grammes of C4 inside),
- a Barbie-doll (100 grammes of C4 inside),
- a cell phone (50 grammes of C4 inside),
- a lighter Zippo (25 grammes of C4 inside
You can take one with you to the school or college and have a lot of fun with your buddies. Buy more than 10 pieces of booby traps, and we upgrade C4 to C4+ for free.(C4+ can not be detected in airports or any other areas).
Also we have our Dutch-based shop where you can buy some drugs to make your life more wonderful and funny. We have wide selection of Ganja, Crack, both synthetic and natural Heroin. And our prices are affordable for everyone.
If you want to buy anything from us, just visit our site, contact administrator and get full price-list. We accept all major credit cards, wire transfers and money orders. Please ask for details if you want to use Western Union or Money gram money transfers.
P.S. Due to our government laws all items from our shop can be sold only to 18+ aged people. We can ask you for age verification before shipping.
We thank to our hosting company AT&T www.att.com, www.att.net cause it in any circumstances continues to host our site and covers all our dirty business for the small per cent from the deals.
So I think that reason for this spam is a knock on ATT. Also I did take the time to look up the domain name of the sender. It is a legitimate hosting company out of San Francisco, and I forwarded the email to them with a warning they had a problem.
Well I hope you got as good a laugh out of this as I. It is by far the most outrageous spam I've ever recieved. Did you get it to, or am I just lucky?
