BlackBerry A Spam Target? – Protect Your Moby Dick

I was just reading about how spammers are targeting our BlackBerrys for spam. Makes sense since I read (& delete) more of my emails on my BlackBerry.

SpamI then read Stan’s article about the ridiculous Spamlets he has been receiving recently and I cant help but agree. 50% of the spam I get nowadays is pure junk. It is just 3–4 lines of gibberish! Are they just testing to see what they can get to pass our spam filters? About a week ago I also started getting parts of Moby Dick as spam!!!

I get one of the business deals from Nigeria or South Africa every day. I also got this one and tons more like it:

rude tabloid about
inside fundraiser living with completely bubbles

Anybody have any idea why they send this junk?


So I thought I would have a bit of fun today. Leave a comment with the best/funniest spam message you have received today.  Please be nice/courteous and edit out the overly explicit parts.

  1. You can always try the Antair Spam Filter, available from http://www.antair.com

    We’ll block the white whale and all kinds of other spammy fish. :)

  2. Those emails definately come out of north Africa, South African’s are some of worst victims of those scam’s, its scary the ignorance of many people.

  3. I got spam on my BB email address, even though I never posted it anywhere. Spammers started getting clever and were able to guess addresses. My solution (which has worked for the past 2 years) is to make your BB email address totally random, and always have a 3rd party forward to that address. So I’m [email protected], but since I never give out that address anyways, who cares what it is.
