Irony via spam: or, the anti-scam scam

Filed under: Spam — codeman38 @ 11:19 am

Actual text of an e-mail scam that I received today, with no comment on my part whatsoever as the irony here should be blatantly obvious:

2010 SCAM VICTIMS COMPENSATIONS PAYMENTS.
YOUR REF/PAYMENTS CODE: ECB/06654 FOR $500,000 USD ONLY.

This is to bring to your notice that our bank (ECOBANK INTL. PLC) is
delegated by the ECOWAS/UNITED NATIONS in Central Bank to pay victims
of scam $500,000 (Five Hundred Thousand Dollars Only).

For verification you are to view the following link.
