To: [some email alias of mine]

Honoured ladies and gentlemen,

it is not to be turned my kind me on this way to you however the circumstances leave me no other possibility.
I want to tell no long stories however I search people to me perhaps help and something support.
My name is Jim Knopf are 45 years and are for 23 years of HIV Positive (Aids)!

Now my problem!
I need approx. 2500.-Euros of every month for drugs.
I have lost my health insurance and is not to be raised in the position this sum every month.
I can allow to prescribe drugs of the doctor however I must pay this itself.
At the moment I live on 210.- Euros in the month this is only for food and for the everyday need.
I do not need ointments - oil baths with the low amount are payable
My savings are used up I can raise the money no more.
This is why I search people to me, perhaps with small sums can support.

Greeting Jim Knopf

Well well. Dear Jim Knopf, why does your bank account say Frank Laugwitz?

Since the bank account you are trying to scam money to is in an Austrian bank, I guess we can assume that you are trying to tell people that you are based in Austria. How about having a look how their healthcare works?

"Top spot in Europe for Austria's health care system: nowhere else in Europe are patients treated more quickly and their medical needs better attended to. This has been revealed by a current study in the EU.

According to this expert study, Austria not only has the most consumer-friendly health care system in Europe, but also performs better than countries like Switzerland or Luxembourg which spend considerably more money on medical care. Austria spends 2,186 euros per head per year, Luxembourg spends 3,526 euros, Switzerland and Norway roughly 2,820 euros.

Even if all health care would not be free in Austria, spamming unknown people for scamming money out of them is never ok.
Oh, and if you are Austrian as you claim, why doesn't your bank account name match your name?
Why are you using an Israelian email?
And why do you spam unknown people with this fake story, Frank (which I don't believe is your name either)? Shame on you.

Wednesday, July 16, 2008, flooding the inboxes

Tourismania is the only spam of a new type I've received recently. New, as in sense that after I have not been spammed by travel sites. Now is flooding my inbox daily, and the fact there is no blacklist on my server side deeply annoys me. I have also never been on their website, which makes this even more annoying.

Typical spam of them:

Whatever excuse they use for spamming daily without any "opt-in" even, this deserves to get his/her/its mailbox flooded with proper porn spam.
