The Spam Report: Day #136: "Form" letter
We've often discussed how poor grammar and spelling are clear indicators that you're potentially dealing with someone who doesn't speak English as their primary language. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but when you're getting a note out of the blue from someone promising you the world, it's fair for you to be more than your usual skeptical.
In today's submission, I'm guessing that George Norbert, who signed his name George Norber, meant to write that the email to me (a.k.a. "Dearest") was "From" George Norbert instead of "Form" George Norbert.
The latter simply leads to a chuckle and yet, another reason to discard it out of hand. However, I answered this one just because I'm curious to see the mistakes made on the next go-around. I'll keep you all up to speed.
In the meanwhile, just hit delete and we'll see you tomorrow with a viewer-submitted Spam Report.
