I love my Junk Mail box at the Britishbeautyblogger@gmail.com account. Although I never open any of it, the titles are more than entertaining on their own, especially the ones that begin, ‘Dear Friend’. A little view of the rubbish pile:
PLEASE REPLY URGENTLY: DEAR FRIEND, FIRST OF ALL I WANT YOU TO KNOW THIS ISN’T A SCAM EMAIL…….How better to immediately flag up a scam?
DR LUCAS POOT: CELEBRATION CONFIRMED! NATIONALE POSTCODE LOTERIJ…..Okay, if you can’t actually spell Lottery, I’m guessing thats a clue.
MRS AUGUSTA HERMINA SIES: HELLO DEAR, MY WARM GREETINGS TO YOU…..I don’t think you mean that quite as sincerely as it sounds.
EROTOPHOBIA: THE FEAR OF SEXUALITY AROUND THERE LOOKING FOR JOBS….Huh?
MR PETER WONG: I AM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE HANG SENG BANK LTD, HONG KONG….I bet you flipping well aren’t.
And so it goes on. I used to get lots and lots of emails from WILL. E. STRETCHER. He stopped writing, and I quite miss old WILL E. now.
