The Insanity That Is Craigslist Spam

April 9, 2009

I just wanted to share this email with you.  It is probably one of the most ridiculous and weak attempts at spam I have seen in a long time.  They are slacking.  It is from a post I put on Craigslist and from Jessica Alba.  Enjoy!


Hello there,

My name is Jessica Alba here …

I want to let u know that i am a business man from USA , i will be interested in ur posted AD on Craiglist .. Pls take this email with seriousness as this is very important to me and urgently needed and thats is why i want u to do me a favour by replying to me as fast as possible so that we can make regotiations asap …The money is not the problem but how the product can get to me reaching a conclusion ..

Thanks again

    Jessica Alba uh? I like how she turned into a man, forgot how to speak english, how to spell and then magically turned back into a girl named Sandra. I hope you guys have smooth “regotiations” and reach a conclusion soon.

    This is the beginning of either an overpayment scam, if you’re selling something or offering a service or a romance scam if you’re running a man/woman seeking woman/man ad. Most responses to Craig’s List ads that are in idiotic English are preludes to a scam.

    I just got this spam from craigslist

    Hey, thanks for mailing me back. I was recently looking for work and I
    really could not find another job, especially right now so i decided
    to start selling my things on cl. I was talking to my brother about
    this and he was in the same situation too(it’s the new cool thing). He
    told me about this program at googlepaidjaycom which really
    gets you started making money online, I made nearly $4k my first
    month. Check it out..let me know if you go through with it I can help
    you out with it. 🙂 Talk to you soon, good luck.
