I was going through my junk mail folder this morning, and I came across this message which looked so genuine, it couldn’t possibly be spam or an attempt to lure me to part with my hard earned money could it?
I mean, just look at the letter below and it’s obvious from the perfect grammar and spelling that it’s written by a wealthy English lady… Oh and the address has to be real too…
Well here it is – unedited, enjoy……….

And… If you have any good spam emails that would help raise a few laughs, please feel free to send them to us in a comment.
If you feel like picking this email apart, there are so many mistakes and curiosities, starting with:
- It was sent from [email protected] but reply to [email protected].
- Kensington is part of London, but is Norwich part of Kensington?
- Her husband is the father of her children. I wonder how many more he has?
- I am surprised that London has only 1 Super Market. Given the size of the city, people must be queuing up for hours to shop!
- America is a state! I thought the USA was comprised of 50 states and America is made up of how many countries?
- If you contact her she will be bale to get hold of you. If I was you I would bale now so she can’t!
Got to love spam emails don’t you.
