Sorry – THIS is the idiotic spam email of the week…

Jump to Comments

The offer from “Whitney Meyer” of $50 for a spam link in a post specifically saying I am not interested in taking money for spam links was good. But “Carrie Oakley” has gone one better.

She picked the post I used to say Whitney was an idiot for picking such an inappropriate post as her chosen vehicle for a plug for her – no doubt fictional – “online university site”.

I created an Online University site called [REDACTED]. It serves as a great resource for new students looking to find all the info they need on getting an online degree.

Would you be interested in accepting a guestpost from me on your page of http://www.freelanceunbound.com/2011/12/05/idiotic-spam-email-of-the-week/ ? I will be happy to write an article about any topic that you would like.  It will only be used on your website.

I would put my link at the bottom of the article so that regular readers of your site who enjoyed my article might follow the link back to my site and find it informative as well.

I would certainly appreciate any opportunity to write an article. Feel free to suggest an idea, or if you prefer I can just come up with one.

Thanks for your time!

Carrie Oakley

Yes – could you write me a guest post on why your automated spamming software could not pick a more suitable target “Carrie”?

It’s all going so meta that I can barely understand it myself. Back to some real media content soon…

  • I got Carrie’s self-same email a few weeks ago. God love her and her crappy spamming algorithm.

    Actually, I’m deluged with this crap. From which I conclude that everyone else is, too – and that lots of ’em must be taking the 30 pieces of silver.

  • Really? The offer can’t be real – surely the conclusion is that nobody is taking it up, hence the all-too widely cast net…
