The Spam Report: Day #118: Rhoda wants to give me $8.3 million

Published On: Apr 07 2014 10:00:40 AM CDT   Updated On: Apr 07 2014 11:22:44 PM CDT
MY DESK: MADISON -

It's Monday and I've yet to have a second cup of coffee after a rough night with our littlest last night, so I'm not totally confident I get the meaning of the email I was sent first thing this morning.

If I've got it straight, the United Nations, Citibank and some woman named Rhoda want to give me $8.3 million except the email was sent by a guy named Moris. Don't know about you, but my sister was a huge fan of the Mary Tyler Moore show. So much so, she named her most favorite cat of all time, Murray.

The only Rhoda I'm familiar with is this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o11tYeLJLw0.

Somehow, I don't think she, Mary and Phyllis have conspired with Mr. Grant and Ted to land me $8.3 million. That's the implausibility factor with emails like this. They're just so ludicrous, they're funny... and then, they should be deleted.

Have a great day.

Adam

  • PHOTOS: Madison store helps collect hundreds of Teddy bears for police

    MADISON, Wis.--A west Madison store is part of an effort to collect hundreds of stuffed animals to donate to six police departments in Southern Wisconsin.

    Todd Merryfield, owner of The Learning Shop at 714 S. Gammon Road, said the store is collecting the bears for officers who use them to help comfort children with whom police come in contact.

    "This is a great way to support what (police) do," Merryfield said. "Those are the kids that need something like this to reassure them, calm them down, and let them know that things are all right."

    Nearly 500 plush animals were donated Tuesday, a Learning Shop spokeswoman said. The Madison store's effort is part of a larger initiative through the Bears for Humanity organization.
