Who Knew

iPads for $39.95; Genie Bra, look lifted and younger without adjusting straps; Language Experts, Trick you brain into learning a foreign language fast!
Can you believe all the neat stuff that Google Gmail thinks is spam? What are we missing? I mean, who wouldn't want to fill lifted and younger without adjusting your straps? How could that be considered spam?
And, just between you and me, I'd love to trick my brain....but I wouldn't trick into learning a foreign language fast, I'd trick into becoming smarter, more creative, and better at planning.
I clear my spam bucket out about every three days. I deleted everything Sunday and today I have 1704 messages that went straight to spam.
I'd call the people that send this stuff stupid, but I'm guessing that for every million or so messages they send, they'll get a few hits. Some poor sap will use a credit card to take advantage of the "enlargement special" but the only thing that gets bigger is the balance on his credit card.  Then he'll be telling his friends, who knew?

  1. I get so annoyed at all the junk mail I have to deal with, but every once in awhile it just amazes me the schemes they cook up to try and hook you!

  5. What concerns me most is that there are very vulnerable people out there who get suckered into the spam email - esp the ones that are supposedly from "banks". It's a nasty evil crime - boo to these spammers! Take care
