Act I — An email from an unknown person to me, discovered in my inbox this morning:
Compliment, Your support is needed for the transfer and investment of funds which belongs to my late client who share similar surnames with you. Contact me if interested..
Act II — My reply, posted here rather than emailed (as I have blocked the address of the sender):
Your compliance is needed with rule for the deletion and blocking of unwanted emailed attempts to con me out of money and/or personal information. You will not contact me again.
P.S. That said…props for boiling the so-called Nigerian Scam (and its near variants) down so efficiently! Remove a word here and there, and that sucker’s tweetworthy! Compliment!
I mean it, dude.
[I find myself wanting to make the whole thing into bad haiku…or possibly a parody of William Carlos Williams.]
