I love unintentionally funny email spam so much. Sadly, it's been a long time—like, years—since I got any that wasn't just a boring re-tread of now-standardized routines. Then, this morning, a wonderful change of pace. In my in-box I found a strange hybrid of the Nigerian prince scam + the foreign lady looking for love scam + the Craigslist I-scam-you-while-you-think-you're-scamming-me scam.

Shorter version: My "dear friend" Helen Small, who is very sad that she hasn't heard from me in a long time and thinks I might have abandoned her, wants to send me some of her birthday gifts as a token of her love and affection for me. For overly complicated reasons, she wants to send me these gifts in the care of her boss. That brings us to the following, amazing, couple of paragraphs:
Please do accept this token of love, I know it isn't much but I sent it from my innermost heart and belief you gonna appreciate everything inside the package coz it is coming from a special friend and in a special way to remember me on my birthday.
The content of the pack are;
2 Dell laptop computer,
4 ip-phones, AN ENVELOPE,
A Video Camera
and some jewelries.
