• Most amusingly bizarre spam….

    I don’t check my Yahoo mail box that often; mostly every couple months to see if anything interesting shows up. Today I found an email that appears to be a rather odd variant of a scam that’s often done with “pre-approved credit cards” and vacation packages.

    The formatting in the main block of text was so bad in the email, that I had to correct it so that it didn’t look REALLY bad here; mostly just line break issues; I’ve left the words that run together for want of a space between them.

    I’m so sad that I missed out on this… what with the October 15th cut off… I mean, I could be an “Act” in the induction, casting and making of “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince”. I wonder what the “deposit” that’s required for the Fed-Ex package will be; I think I’ll send them an email and see if I can still “apply”….

      So, they’re in the UK, but their fax machine is in Seattle =D

      It’s 1492 Pictures, Heyday Films that you need to send stuff to if you want a part. WB just does the distribution.

      But seriously, I think you would make a better Hermione Granger. Hands down. Any day.
