    The grammar isn't that bad until the last couple of lines... then it reverts to the usual "we are having monies for you recieve".

    [Either that or I can't brain at the moment.]

    Yeah... it's not that bad grammar wise, however, if you wanted be a bit convincing you'd at least put a plus logo on it somewhere surely?

    That involves work... And if they wanted to do work, they wouldn't be spammers.

    I like to fill in their little forms with creative abusive messages. I know it's sometimes attempted drive bys too but if you're careful giving them data like that is strangely satisfying

    I have received an E-Mail this morning from Prodigy Learning Marketing where all 999 recipients were visible to everyone else.

    [Not providing a screenshot here to preserve the privacy of the other recipients]

    The E-Mail subject was: Certification Matters 3.2 - Celebrating Success. Anyone else get this?

    Not from them, but I did get one from our LEA exactly like that, with about 300 technical staff emails in it!

    Hmmm, maybe it's just me but I thought the grammar was bad all the way through.

    Ack, no! They have found me out as a fraulent user!

    Unless they're emails being sent out by your typical confused 13-year-old-boy-on-the-internet looking for girls, and he's after a Fraulein user to pester for rudey photos?
