Scams: Dr. Ubakassi of West Africa

I can’t believe stuff like this is making it through Gmail’s spam filter, but it seems somewhat appropriate for Halloween… Are you disappointed in your life?? Have you failed in all worlds of life? Am called Dr. Ubakassi, A Love...

social media: instagram mosaic

So… that’s new. I’m used to getting random favorites and followers on instagram and most of them being “buy followers!” accounts, but this is a new tactic. At least it’s new to me. It’s definitely impressive and is banking on...

ads: stock up!

I get way more e-mail than I need. This is likely a very common modern lament, but I can’t bring myself to unsubscribe from them all. It feels really weird when I don’t get any e-mails for a while. I...

spam: …eloquent spam

It may be taking a while for my coffee to kick in, but while clearing out the spam comments this morning, these two are definitely winners!

twitter: get out there with a real girl

I realize that spammers have to cast a wide net, but I think this one, replying to a completely–of course–non-related tweet, hilariously misses every single mark.1 I’m not sure how one connects talking about hazing at FAMU to that, but...

twitter tuesday: Impostors!

Unless you’re the one raking in money from the duped masses, chances are good that you don’t like spam. Estimates say that nearly 80-90% of all incoming e-mail these days is from spam senders. Thank goodness most of them haven’t...

facebook: the biggest pecker*

Now what did I JUST say about getting like-jacked, folks?! This weekend, a few more of my contacts got suckered in on a most embarrassingly titled link. Though I have to admit, if I’d been drinking at the time, this...

facebook: you got jacked!

I haven’t weighed in on the Facebook privacy kerfuffle because I figure most of my friends are smart enough to control their settings, remove their information, delete their accounts outright… or just didn’t care because Facebook is so cool!

spam: ARE YOU STILL ALIVE ???

A delightful bit of spam* seen while making the afternoon e-mail check: Attention Beneficiary: We write to confirm if there will be any response from any of your relations concerning what we just heard from a man named Mr. Paul...

moving: Spam, Spam, Baked Beans…

I really thought I was done with the series of moving-related spam posts this week* but clearly not. But it’s Friday, so let’s lighten the mood first off: Salsus told me that I’d mentioned spam far too often not to...

phone: Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam…

Quick question: What the heck is up with callers/spammers being allowed to report stuff like this as their caller ID? It would figure on a day that I’m ranting about craigslist spam, I’d get this call while leaving the office....

moving: Spam, Spam, Spam, Spam…

I know that craigslist is supposed to be the savior of apartment hunters, but I swear it’s giving me a headache.* I can deal with ads for apartments out of my price range, even one in my own building for...

spam: ur (almost) doin it wrong

I’ve seen some pretty poorly done spam since moving to WordPress, but the following is about the most well-done I’m a real person and not a robot, I swear! spam comment I’ve gotten in a while: Not that I’m totally...
