I remember the green card spam. They helpfully included a fax number, so a friend of mine taped together a couple of pieces of black construction paper, stuck them in his fax machine and made a loop out of them before dialing their fax number. IIRC, he let it run overnight, with the goal of wasting all their paper and burning out their fax printer head.

Harry Freakstorm: WiM (e-Mail to All) Once again, I have to do our tech support. People who are getting these 'Spammed' e-mails can open the message and select "Remove me from future e-mails". That will take care of it. You're welcome, tech support.

Like it was yesterday...

Hell, er Help desk. How may I help you?
Woman in Manufacturing: Hello. I just got this e-mail from a guy who says if I forward it, I'll get a check based on how many people I forward it to.
Me: Oh that's Spam. It's junk mail. You can delete it.
WiM: Oh, I already forwarded it to everyone here at work.
Me: Oh. Well, I'm sure they'll appreciate it. As long as you didn't reply t the sender with all our e-mails.
WiM: But that's what I did.
Me: You just turned over the company's e-mail directory to a bunch of scammers. We'll be getting a lot of junk mail very soon.
WiM: You should have told us not to reply to unsolicited e-mails
Me: Do you answer every piece of junk mail that you get at home?
WiM: No. But this is business. It's a good business practice/
Me: Hey look. In addition to your e-mail, I just got a piece of spam offering "real Rotex Watches". Awesome.
WiM: Well, do something to stop it.
Me: Well, we have a Lotus Notes server and the 'administrator' is in Milwaukee. Why don't you e-mail him? He doesn't reply to any of mine messages or phone calls. Probably because he doesn't know anything about Lotus Notes and doesn't have the sense to pour the piss out of his boots.
WiM: Call me when you've fixed this. I can't handle all these distractions!*

Boss: I'm suddenly getting a lot of spam. What happened?
Me: (WiM) Sent our directory to a spammer. You want me to call the Notes Admin?
Boss: Naw. He doesn't have the sense to pour the piss out of his own boots. You do something. I'm gonna disappear for four hours.
Me: This won't go away in four hours.
Boss: Okay, five. (Poof - Gone)

Me: (E-mail to All) In light of the recent increase in Spam, e-mail that is not requested and may contain dubious promises, I have set up a Spam folder on the Lotus Notes server. Please click here to add it to your e-mail account. Drag all suspected messages to this folder without opening or replying.

WiM (e-Mail to All) Once again, I have to do our tech support. People who are getting these 'Spammed' e-mails can open the message and select "Remove me from future e-mails". That will take care of it. You're welcome, tech support.

kling_klang_bed: "Shatter Her Meat Tunnel"


Well, that just sounds pleasant for everyone involved. Where do I sign up? My wife was commenting the other day on how she wished my dick was so big that it would physically destroy her reproductive organs. You're just not a real man unless you leave her broken and bleeding.

The 419 scam has been going on a lot longer than the internet has been around. E-mail just makes the scam easier to deliver to more people (i.e. casting a wider net)
