What the hell, Nigerian prince? We emailed you our bank details in good faith, and haven't seen hide nor hair of those millions you promised to share with us! And where has all of our own damn cashtacular suddenly gone? What a regal bastard.

This kind of BS is the sole reason for the existence of spam folders/filters. They aren't a real pharmaceutical company, and those pills won't make your wang nine inches longer. Screw these liars and their lying lies. But hell, Internet spammers, if you must be dicks, don't be cruel as well.

Don't, for instance, pretend to be offering an invite to a non-existent beta for Grand Theft Auto V on PC. Non-console players have been clamoring for such a thing since the game's release last September, and would be easy targets for a scam such as:

"YOU INVITED BETA TESTER! Hot damn, it's our lucky day.

Well, if it wasn't so piss-poor grammatically. And didn't sport those scam-tastic Slovak links. They didn't even trouble to mock up the Rockstar logo and add that to the corner. It reeks of A WINNER IS YOU!, though in this instance you is not a winner at all. You is the gullible, gullible victim of some phishing bastards.
