The amusement of minimalist spam

January 29, 2011

I just received the following extremely minimalist and to the point spam message:

This is to notify you of a payment Order of usd$8.5m created into Atm Card in your name from the skye bank, you are advice to reconfirm us 1 Name 2 Address 3 Phone 4 ID.

Some days, I like to think that the advance fee fraud spammers are just as tired of the whole thing as the rest of us are.

I was a bit amused when, after reading this post, I got spam even more sparse than that one. The body was just "Name.. Address... Tel..."

Or it could mean that folks are getting more and more susceptible to scam-mail; that they can now carry on without effort.

Of course, it could now be the result of a new network, since I see many mails with this exact form-format.
