I got this spam email in French. I suppose that was always on the cards, after all I get a few in Chinese, and other languages I don't understand.

It appears that this woman needs financial help in getting herself, and her son, out of some place.

I couldn't even fully understand it, after using Google translate, until I added some spaces after the periods that normally end a sentence.

The (translated) message ends:

Thought I would take a quick look at the adventures of Wendy and Willis.

Seems she is the real business woman of today;

Also, are there any other expenses I need to cover besides the airfare and accomodations? I could probably set up a trip to Amsterdam if need to. My company, Swollennutz has a business park development in Amsterdam called "The Clap". Perhaps you have heard of it?


I'm still laughing myself silly  :D
