‘Some Internet Fraudster’
Occasionally a phishing email will make me feel sad for the scammer. I’m concerned that some of them lack skills needed to succeed in their chosen extractive trade. I received this “lure” from Natascha yesterday:
I understand that there are even sadder people who fall for these things, but come on. Really, Natascha? This is what you’re going with? This is your pitch?
Yet I want to thank you. Your appeal is so delightfully clumsy in its phoniness.
Note from 2016: A comment to this post pointed out that this is often intentional, to better filter the marks.
