After getting sick of gmail's usually decent spam filter not realizing that emails telling me I've won the lottery are spam despite the fact that I reported them every flippin' day, I made a sorting task to send emails with "lottery" in the subject straight to the trash. I suppose I might some day miss something important, but I really don't care.

Anyone else been getting spam with xuifopqaiert7843.pdf and whatnot in the subject? Do people think I will actually look at the email, let alone click on the attatchment?

I had 8 emails this morning. 3 were semi-legit spam (those various lists you get signed up for and are too lazy to leave) and 5 were .pdfs.

Dear Friend,

I am Mrs. SUHA ARAFAT, the wife of YASSER ARAFAT, the Palestinian leader who died in Paris. Since
his death and even prior to the announcement, I have been thrown into a state of
antagonism,confusion,humiliation, frustration and hopelessness by the present leadership of the
Palestinian Liberation Organization and the new Prime Minister.

I have even been subjected to physical and psychological torture. As a widow that is so traumatized,
I
have lost confidence with everybody in the country at the moment You must have heard over the
media reports and the Internet on the discovery of some fund in my husband secret bank account and
companies and the allegations of some huge sums of money deposited by my husband in my name of
which I have refuses to disclose or give up to the corrupt Palestine Government.

In fact the total sum allegedly discovered by the Government so far is in the tune of about $6.5
Billion
Dollars. And they are not relenting on their effort to make me poor for life. As you know, the
Moslem
community has no regards for woman, hence my desire for a foreign assistance.

You can visit the BBC news broadcast below for better understanding of what I am talking about.
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/mid...st/3479937.stm
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/mid...st/3995769.stm
I have deposited the sum of 18 million dollars with a security firm abroad whose name is withheld
for
now until we open communication. I shall be grateful if you could receive this fund into your bank
account for safe keeping and any Investment opportunity.This arrangement is known to you and my
personal Attorney.He might be dealing with you directly for security reasons as the case may be.My
Attorney lives in London (UK) because i want him to be far away from my country Palestinian for the
fear of my Governemnt.

In view of the above, if you are willing to assist for our mutual benefits, we will have to
negotiate on
your Percentage shar e of the $18million that will be kept in your position for a while and invested
in
your name for my trust pending when my Daughter, Zahwa, will come off age and take full
responsibility of her Family Estate/inheritance.

If you are honest, I am going to entrust more funds in your care as this is one of the legacy we
keep
for our children. In case you don't accept please do not let me out to the security and
international
media as I am giving you this information in total trust and confidence I will greatly appreciate if
you
accept my proposal in good faith.
You are to contact me on this email address( mrsarafat_su02@yahoo.com) and send me your full
names and your phone number to proceed immontact telephone numbers, for my attorney to contact
you for us to proceed immediately.Please expedite action is needed.

Yours sincerely
Mrs Suha Arafat

Oh I know all these so well. I never thought that you can get so much crap into your mailbox in just a couple of hours. I have an e-mail-adress where I am mostly getting newsletters, mainly from U2 sites, and whenever I look into my mail in the morning I am getting my hopes up for some cool news, just to find out that almost all of it is pure trash. I report so much to the spam guard, but it just seems to get more and more every day.

Yes, I do that as well. One of my yahoo addresses for work hardly gets spam, but my other one gets hundreds a day! I can't understand why, in this case Yahoo, doesn't filter or automatically question emails with subjects that contain certain words, as LOTTERY, business offer, award notification, cash aid, winning notification,...
