I've been looking at scam e-mails for a long while now.
I'm always tickled by the opening few bars of their impassioned plea for help or offer of unimaginable riches.


I saw one today which started off with

Quote:
Good Day My good friend?


Firstly, if I've never met someone and send them an e-mail, would I call someone a friend let alone question the fact Smile

Quote:
Dear Good Friend,

Just as painful and plainly leading to some begging or pleading.

Quote:
Dear Beloved,

Well that's just over the top. The only time that is ever used is by a vicar at a wedding. Usually I can guess the rest of the e-mail is going to be about a 'dying old christian woman leaving her vast fortune to orphans'

Quote:
Dear Recipient;

Lazy. Yes I am the recipient, what do you want.

Quote:
Hello dear

The term 'Dear' is often mistaken for a term of endearment. Calling someone 'Dear' is quite old fashioned and looked upon with derision if used in an office environment, especially between men and women. Romance scams usually begin with a 'dear or dearest'

Quote:
Dear Selected Winner,

Lottery scam, pass.

Quote:
IGOOD DAY.

'I' good day indeed. Apart from the typo, this is quite a common formal greeting. I can usually guess the person will pretend to be contacting me in some official capacity, a barrister or bank manager.

What's the weirdest opening to scam mail anyone has had?

I like the ones that claim that I am the sole recipient to claim the fortune, and see that the e-mail is being sent out to the world.

And somebody is selling other scammers the letterhead for "ATT Drivers and Downloads" and then phishing for my account information.

Love that personal touch.

I had one that seemed to alternate between "Calvary greetings!" and "Cavalry greetings!". I don't think he could decide whether he was Jesus or on horseback. Very Happy

I just got one from a member of the US Army:

"Dear Pal"

One of my favorites is has always been:

"Compliment of the season", which seems a bit stale by February.

"Dear Beloved in Christ"...sort of over the top, IMO.

"Dear Sir or Madam"

I would rather they just start with "Hey, You!"

^^^Alex Wilmot-Sitwell (without the h) really is a CEO of UBS, so looks like a bit of de-education has gone on.

I love it when they address my female characters with "Dear Sir". Laughing

Little do they know, that they're sticking their hand into a militant feministic hornet nest. Evil or Very Mad
