Spam. It has reached a whole new level. Nowadays, e-mail spam makes a lot of sense and tries to trick you into thinking that the content of that said spam is legit, which it isn’t. I’ll share with you a message I found to be very interesting.
Note that there is a link in the original message which I will censor for your computer’s safety, duh.
Here it is.

Hate to burst your bubble mr. spamalot, but I never had a World Of Warcraft account and never played the game either. Try again in 200 years.
Finally, I’ll leave you all with a not-so-remarkable quote:
“Like almost everyone who uses e-mail, I receive a ton of spam every day. Much of it offers to help me get out of debt or get rich quick. It would be funny if it weren’t so exciting.” – Bill Gates
