Back To Spam School

I’ve received two emails now from the same spammer.  I wish I had kept the first one because it was even funnier than this one.  He’s apparently working on his spelling but still has a way to go.  I give you… someone pretending to be PayPal!


We emailed you a little while ago to ask for your help resolving an issue with your PayPal account. Your account is still temporarily limited because we haven’t heard from you

What’s the problem ?

Take a momment to change your password and security questions and riview your account information and recent transactions for changes or unknown payment.  If you see a payment you don’t recognise, go to the Resolution Centre and report it by clicking “Dispute a Transaction”

How you can help

Okay Mr. Spammer, here’s a little lesson in grammar.  Under “What’s the problem”, you write “We noticed some unusual log in activity with your account.”  The correct way to say this would be, “We’ve noticed some unusual activity on your account.”  Also, “moment” is spelled with only one “m”.  “Riview” is spelled “Review”, and “payment” should be plural.  To make the word plural simply add an “s” to the end of the word.  Since I am in the United States we spell it “Center” not “Centre”.   Finally, in your last paragraph please delete “It’s help us with this and”.  Simply start your sentence with “To see what you can and can’t do…”

So there you are Mr. Spammer.  My little attempt to make the world a better place through better grammar.
