Funniest. Spam. Ever.

I received this spam mail today. Okay, it may not have been the funniest ever, but it was so horribly inept that I laughed out loud. My comments are in bold. Otherwise, I have maintained the spelling of the original.

Dear Selected winner,

This is to inform you that you have been selected for a cash Price of £1,000,000.00(One Million Pound Sterling) in cash.from International programme held on the 1TH MARCH. 2007 in the United Kindom. (This sentence is wonderful on so many levels! I particularly like the fact that my "cash Price" is in cash!) The selection process was carried out through random selection in our computerised email selection system from a database of over 250,000 email addresses drawn from all the continents of the world which your email was among the first ten (10) lucky winners. (Wow, the word "selection" and the word "email" used three times in the one sentence. That can't be easy.)

You are therefore advise to contact Claims Agent for the release of your winningsprovide him with the under listed informations. (Another great sentence. I was giggling mightily by this point.)

EMAIL: thomashoper@hotmail.com (Apparently Tom forgot how to spell his last name when he set up his Hotmail account.)

1.Name in full.
2.Address in full.
3.Nationality & Present Country.
5.Phone /Fax /Sex. (I don't know if he wants my phone number, fax number and gender, or if he wants to get all nasty with me long distance. And I'd never even heard of fax sex...)
6.Email address. (Why? Couldn't he just pull it from the email?)
Yours Truly,
Sir Steven Moore Co-Coordinator (Online Promo Programme).. (Gosh, such hilarity, and from a knight no less!)

I'd be really curious to find out if this nets the spammer a single reply. Considering the state of the world, it probably will...
