I hate spam as much as, well, everybody, but occasionally it's funny. Like this particular message.

Hi !I am from Sweden and I am travelling your area havinga good time - I saw your profile on friendfinder.combefore I left Sweden and I send you a couple ofE-Mails through friendfinder before I left and wonderif yoU received them ?I have arrived in our area now - but no reply?I am hoping I have not broken my account by changingmy venu or because my email address was in Sweden ?
I am looking for a bit of fun while I am in our area -and want somebody to show me round this place( especially night life!!)If you are fixed up please let me know!Elga(Just arrived ! ) XXMy ‘HANDLE’ at friendfinder is (if it works!!) isFUNLADYNOW - I hope you see my picture and see whatI like if you are not fixed up already!!Please let me know one way or not !
If you want my picture please send an email toelga_vouieses_beligt@yahoo.com

I like this spam because:

A) I did not have a membership at friendfinder. I created one to look up this account but I don't think I can search for specific usernames, which makes the email even more of a waste.

B) I checked her Yahoo account, and it was created ten days ago. It will be gone in less than that much time.

C) She's visiting "my area." Really. Very specific.

D) There's no such thing as night life in "my area."
