I’ve been meaning to post about this one for quite a while. My spam filters do a pretty good job, but a couple a day usually slip into my inbox. Here’s one from a sender named “Hubby Watch” that I just had to share:
4 Cheating-Wives have been matched for you in your area:
1) Jessica, 120 lbs, 5′9, 36c, 10 miles away, available Dec 22-25th
2) Laura, 127 lbs, 5′8, 36d, 8 miles away, available Dec 22-28th
3) Tabatha, 117 lbs, 5′6, 34b, 19 miles away, available most nights(husband works midnights)

All 4 women are waiting to speak with you live & have photos. Webcam’s are available for all 4.
Amy got quite a kick out of this one as I ranted about it. Do people really fall for this? Apparently so, or people wouldn’t send the emails. I mean, let’s say… just for a second… that I was shopping for a “cheating wife”. This email would have me believe that someone has taken the trouble to figure out who I am (using the “comments@” email address at this web site), and has also managed to somehow figure out just what kind of “cheating wife” is a “match” for me. Not only that, but they know where I live. How do I know that? Well, because they’ve been helpful enough to find matching candidates that all live within 21 miles of me. Wow! There are even helpful details on what time would be best for me to show up and what kind of relationship she’s looking for. Oooh. And webcams! What service!
Like I said, this crap obviously works on someone, but it’s really stretching my imagination to figure out who.
So, let’s have some fun with this and open up the voting booth here at Sliding Constant. Which one of these cheating wives do my readers (all two or so of you) think I should have picked? I forgot to ask Amy which was her pick. We’ll get her to chime in when she gets back into town. 🙂
