This "spam" DID arrive in my inbox, and may be a change in "tactical warfare" from the "Spammer Warlords" - you know - those guys sitting in shanty tin cabins, dressed up to the nines, surrounded by hungry, dirty little boys, who idolise them, tapping away on their keypads, and sending stupid messages to all and sundry!
The AMAZING thing is - it still seems to work! There are, it seems still people out there greedy enough to think that a quick few thousands can be had!
Well - they CAN'T!
Their "idolisers" are impressed because their hero can apparantly speak all manners of strange languages, is dressed magnificently, drives an old, but impressive cadillac, and appears to have a magnificent new Rolex watch on his wrist!
Apart from the abominable English, this guy actually TELLS you he expects YOU buy the stuff and then sell it to him/her!
Utterly amazing, but I have confidence in G-mail - they will figure it out!
Incidentally - the author's adress is given as:"Josephnaytowho@hotmail.com" - Here is his masterpiece:

How are you doing? Firstly I will like to introduce myself to you, I'm Margaret Steven from Edinburgh, United Kingdom, working as a Procurement to The Era Global Veterinary Group. I got you email contact on internet when searching so i decide to tell you about this injection. My company have been making research about an injection, it is INJECTION FOR HORSE. our company usually buy the injection from France but since 3 months now, the company we use to buy the injection in France don't have the injection anymore and we have been making enquiry about the injection in all europe countries but we can not get it. Luckily the seller in France advised me that i can get the injection from asia either Malaysia, India, Korea or Macau and since then i have been looking for someone whom i can trust to do the business with. You see, our company use to buy the injection at the rate of $3,300 USD PER ONE PACKET AND EACH PACKET CONTAINS 10 BOTTLES. Luckily i was told that we can get the injection from Asia at the rate of $1,600 USD per catton and they need 50 to 800 cantons and they will pay cash once we get the injection. Now, all i want is for us to do the business on trust, we share the percentage peacefully, all you have to do is to buy the injection and my company will buy from you at the rate of $3,300 USD which means we will be having a profit of $1,500 USD per each Packet. Once i confirm that you have gotten the injection, i will come down to meet you up with our company purchasing manager to buy the injection from you but you have to act as the seller of the injection because i don't want him to know where you bought the injection from so that we can still continue the business in the future.
Please kindly make enquiry about the injection fast and get back to me so that i will inform them that we have gotten the injection. The name of the injection is CONCENTRATED PENTOSAN 4 EQUINE INJECTION (10ml) 1 Packet is 10 bottles. Attached is my picture and also the picture of the Injection.
Thanks and i look forward to hearing from you soon.
