But just so he doesn't forget me, I have begun replying to all of my spam with a version of the following:
(in response to Mrs. Jacobsen's e-mail with the subject line, "why not get a date")I've used a similar reply for free music downloads, military benefits, nutritional supplements, men's blue jeans and the jackrabbit vibrator. Most of the spam replies have been returned, but I have been cc: ing Winston on all of these replies just so he knows I'm looking out for him. And who knows, maybe he'll see the value of cocoa.
Dear Mrs. Jacobsen,
My name is Winston Magui. I am an Ivorian. And yes, I am in need of a date. I am willing to trade you several cases of cocoa for a date. First, however, I need you to help me get $5 million american dollars out of my country and into a safe bank account. Please to send me where I can wire the money.
Yours in regrets, Winston firstname.lastname@example.org
PS: I am not named after the cigarette
