Fun with spam emails Pt 3

Another spam email that I replied to. This one never wrote me back, possibly because of my pervasive (yet intentional) grammatical errors. Or possibly because they did steal my idea!

Lyon 69001, France.

Hey that is awesom about the grant money. I need to give you my info so you can send me a check? I have a great idea to change the world. It is the idea to train badgers to rescue starving people from their starvation. Badgers are notoriouos for finding food and if I can train them (I have allready trained one and it is a success!!!) to find starving people and carry them to where the food is it litterally has the possibility to change how the world is run and not have people die from starving anymore!

PLeas send money.

PS- if you think to stael my idea I can sue you!


  1. I like that they're going to change the standard of living across the Universe. The work they have planned for Jupiter is truly amazing. Also, congratulations on being chosen based on your supermarket receipts. I would have thought there'd be some law against a foreign company having access to your receipts and bank records, but luckily for you apparently there isn't. You lucky bastard. Don't spend it all in one place!
