Subject: Inheritance.

Please confirm if you are interseted in the Inheritance. If yes, contact me through email robert.ehis@yahoo.com.hk by sending your Telephone number, full name, occupation, age, nationality and full address.

The phrase “if you are interested in the Inheritance” is sort of cute, though.

Second-best all-time “cheap knock-off watch” spam I’ve ever received:

Subject: Look like your favorite actor. Purchase Swiss replica watches at our site. You will become rich fast if you will save you money with us.

The more original details your wear the better your look as a whole is. The cheapest prices for and Rolex, Gucci, Omega etc. watches are presented at our site.
Enter fast

Yes, that really was the subject line. Bit long, isn’t it?

For one thing, my favorite actors aren’t really people I’d want to look like. I’m sure they wouldn’t want to look like me, either. For another, how am I going to become rich by buying a fake Rolex? “Enter fast” was linked to a website based in Russia.

This one has to be from the same people. All-time best “cheap knock-off watch” spam I have ever seen:

Subject: Our watch will look great even on any loser.

Expensive clothing and expensive watch are the main accessories of any man. Get the original copy of the Swiss watch at our site and enjoy other’s people attention!
Click at the moment

Loser? Who you callin’ a loser, man? Is this really supposed to entice me?

And it’s not just any copy, folks, it’s the original copy. Very postmodern of them, isn’t it? “Click at the moment” linked to yet another site based in Russia.
