I don't usually open 419-scam emails, but I happened to glance at this one, and was amused at a particular phrase:
My name is Mr.Gat Butu
I am from Portugal. I have been diagnosed
with Esophageal cancer. It
has defiled all forms of medical treatment,and right now I have only
about a few months to live, according to medical experts.
I think the idea of a form of cancer that defiles all forms of medical treatment is kind of poetic. Ptooey! I spit on your medical treatment!
Okay, here's a bonus spam quote, from a different 419 scam email:
I am writting this letter with due respect and heartful of tears since we have not known or met ourselves previously.
That's pretty deep. It makes me wonder: have I ever really known or met myself previously? I'll have to think about that.
I know, I know, it's bad form to make fun of stuff written by non-native speakers, and my attempts at writing in a foreign language would be a lot more laughable. But sometimes I can't resist.
