So there we have it, another wanky spam email and shock, horror, look I am breaking their advice and raising the digital middle finger to them and Ha! I am duplicating this message and I rate it a 6/10 as there are too many silly errors in this to be even worthy of a modern and progressive spam mail.
Nigeria, land of…well I am not sure actually as English secondary schools don’t really concentrate on this part of the world and it was not on Hitler’s hit list or had anything to do with crop rotation so my knowledge is almost nothing about this mysterious place apart from the fact (or is it urban legend?) that its where spam mail spews forth into the world. When I get a spam mail from anyone claiming to be from Nigeria I smile, I really do as the image that conjures up in my mind is of this fine chap.
It’s all phonejackers fault but it sets the tone for the following wonderful piece of garbage I received today. If you are not familiar with phonejacker take a look at this first.
Anyhow, here it is and its a fine welcome return to our friend with the sticky CAPS LOCK. HOWEVER, sorry, however, he’s bob on that yes indeed I have had bitter experience with scammers and its like Terence the ambassador really does know me. Gosh, I’m feeling almost bashful and almost teary eyed when he talks about my hard earned money. But, wait, whats that Terence are you telling me that there is no genuine business on the internet? How can that be as I have successfully been purchasing goods off Amazon, iTunes and Ebay for years. Actually, hang on Ebay is a den of thieves (personal experience, thank you very much) so maybe old Terry has a point after all!
Oh Buggering Hell Terry. Why did you not ask if I was an American citizen at the sodding start, rather then make me misty eyed with you valour only to ditch me in the middle of the email when you only state that you care about American citizens. You utter bastard Terrence, you total twat.

All in I think this is a junior spammer. Lots of errors here in that there is the assumption that I am an American and then the CAPS LOCK issues again, but finally asking for the payment in the first email is sloppy and cheap. No foreplay here but whip me kecks down for a bit of how’s your father on the first date. Shoddy effort and a very poor show. 3/10
Honestly Terrence I am so disappointed in you.
