Those Evil Spammers!


Banana Republic Jacket (I've had this for ages)
Arden B.- Shirt (this is super old because I haven't shopped there in about 5 years!)
Jeggings from Macy's
Marc Fisher Lace up Shoes via Marshall's
LV Speedy 35
Scarf: Target
Hat: I might have jacked this from a certain somebody. Looks better on me!
This is not clothes related but I must let it out. Let me rant first, then you can go on blog surfing. I get no less than  5-10 random spam emails from people out of the country who are always on a sick bed or need to transfer money into my account. It's so annoying! Always from people I don't know! From places I can't even pronounce.

Most times I just hit delete but even that little energy could have been spent doing other things...like pushing another Double Stuffed Golden Oreo cookie in my mouth or something. A few times I hit reply and tell the person that I am forwarding their spam requests to the FBI. Of course, that just means I get more. So I thought I would copy and paste an actual email request that I get daily and then reply once and forever!

Maybe they are surfing my blog and recognize their poorly written email...they will first be embarrassed for all the incorrectly spelled words and then tell their friends on sick beds or the ones waiting at Western Union for my information to take me off the EMAIL LIST!! UGH!!

Dear Patner,



I am Mr.Solomon, Staff of Banque De L'Habitat Au (BHBF) in Burkina faso. I would like you to indicate your interest to receive the transfer of US$12.5 Million Dollars. I will like you to stand as the next of kin to my late client whose account is presently dormant for claims. Please once you are interested kindly send me the following details information below...

Signed,
Idiot Spammer

Here is my response....
Dear Partner Loser ,
If I was silly enough to accept that transfer from you, rest assured that you will never receive it! I will fall off the face of the earth only to resurface if Sade' came to town as the opening act for a Kanye West concert..which probably means never.

Signed,
Annoyed Reiko 

Ok...I feel better. Go on, get out of here. Go blog surf!

This post is too funny! I love that Banana Republic jacket! And spam is really irritating, which is why I use a specific e-mail to give out for offers...so go ahead spam...I don't care.

P.S. I found one of your dress posts. You tried on my wedding dress! It's a Mon Cheri beaded dress. You also tried on a dress similar to a dress I tried on. :-)

And what is so sad is that some people actually fall for this. My spam box is loaded with these. UGH! These people need to get off the computer & get a life! HMPH!
Love the outfit! (((HUGS)))

Lynn said...

Right with the overseas spammers thing! I'm like where did you get that much money to begin with and what? No background check? I could be a junkie for all you know. I live for the misspellings though, I eat those emails for brakefast! ;o)

My best, Lynn

Super cute outfit!

Spammers, I totally feel you on this subject. I don't know how they keep finding me....But they do.

Emily Kennedy said...

You're breaking my heart! Does it really have to be that unlikely that Sade is going to tour with Kanye West?

I think I'm going to wear leggings today. Thanks for the idea. :)

Moni @ CL Journal said...

Reiko!

I love this! So funny, you know I'm gonna have to try this one day. I was always afraid to respond but now I will have to because they are really out of line.

Love the outfit, I have some jeggings myself, don't you just love them?

Allison said...

You are so right. Anyone who gets an email address should have to sit through a tutorial on how not to fall for these (I'm trying not to feel intellectually superior but come ON -- people actually FALL for these?).

You so rock those jeggings.

CaneWife said...

Fantastic jacket!

I love your response, too. Hopefully the spammers will start getting the hint.

Kyla said...

Wow! You look super hot in this! And I don't where you got that hat, but I'm sure that it looks better on you :)

Linda said...

Looking fab as always!

Joy said...

Ha! I hear you. I get a ridiculous amount of spam in my legit folder (and vice versa) every day. I resent having to click and delete them.

Jan-nini said...

LMAO!!!! I like to look at 419eater.com and other scam baiting websites. They make complete idiots out of these scammers. Apart from that the scarf really adds that extra cherry on top of your outfit sundae. You're looking GREAT!

"Cottage By The Sea" said...

You have got the style thing going! You always look so comfortable in your own skin. I'm a complete fashion retard but I'll just live vicariously through you. Your letter to spammer was hysterical. First blog I read this morning and you have no idea how badly I needed a good laugh. Thanks!

Christen said...

Your response letter cracked me up! And I love that blazer on you, the sleeves are gorgeous!

Love the hat and the oxford pumps. Too cool! I hate those foregin spammers, I don't know how they get through my yahoo spam filter. They got the spam filters beat!

Life with Kaishon said...

It annoys me to no end! I also get a lot of Chinese Prostitution scams. That annoys me too. Why would they pick my blog. Creepazoids for sure.
