I read that they purposely make them really stupid because they are targeting the truly gullible.

Much of that stuff is so poorly done that I'm surprised that they get any bites at all.

Umm, no, wait. I'm not completely surprised. smiley-grin

What I am surprised is to see that they get paid to do this kind of brain-dead job. What a waste of resources and brain mass.

I have the feeling the type of people that do this kind of stuff would not provide a signifigant amount of brain mass to the world anyway, we just got to get them thinking something else is a great scam platform

I often wonder how many sisters she has or why she's stalking me. Whatever town I visit and click some web-pages, when reading the advertisement she's never further away as 20 miles...

I got another one today:

It has come to our attention that you are trying to sell your personal DOFUS account(s).
As you may not be aware of, this conflicts with the EULA and Terms of Agreement.
If this proves to be true, your account can and will be disabled.
It will be ongoing for further investigation by 's employees.

Note that the spammer was too stupid to fill in the company name on his spam bot, so we get the "further investigation by 's employees" line.
