Received the following today from SPAMWORLD.COM. Although I must admit, I wasn't aware we'd all been assigned spam-sending quotas. All this time, I could have been spamming freely as long as I observed my quota. Who knew?

As there was no "step below" included in the email, I have no recourse but to comply with their request.

What could go wrong?*

NO NO sounds like a hoax to me. They are phishing for your personal details surely ??. Ignore it and put them in your "block senders" function.

I meant to be sarcastic. No one need to know your password but you. EVER.

I'm well used to dealing with these things, Wrathy. Just send the details, along with your credit card details to the usual and I'll sort it for 3 easy payments of YOUR MAXIMUM CREDIT LIMIT.

I like sarcasm. I wonder if SpamWorld does, too?

I get a kick from the error code "AHGF8Z02ARO". I just calculated the permutations of possible errors with this alphanumeric to 208,827,064,576,000 possible combos. I think that's about enough to account for all the errors I've made in this lifetime.

I'm with edt on this one - it could be a hideously clever plan infiltrate your email account and get access to all your penis extension and viagra based email. I personally would never fall for this fiendish scam as I am VERY careful with my many email accounts and logins. So careful in fact that even I don't know what email or password I used to setup my Facebook account. (This bit is unfortunately true)

Appropriate reply is:

Well, I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you. So let's just skip straight to step 2, shall we?

Mwa ha ha! But then, my email would be so rife with typograpical errors, would they know what I was trying to say?
