Posted on: April 27, 2018 - In: Marketing
We all get some SPAM emails during the day, but some emails are just better than others. Down below I will share a good video that inspired me to read my spam emails and maybe make something out of that. Anyway, In this case, I will point out one single email that is claiming that I got $50.000.000 from some imaginary Yahoo (Email) Lottery and how bad is it.

When you really decide to SPAM and take advantage of some people you should do better than using 3 Different Names, 2 Different Email accounts, and 3 different domains. I can tell that branding is not something that this Spammer is good at because he would have a decent job at least.
Anyway here’s a video of James Veitch about unclaimed insurance bonds, diamond-encrusted safe deposit boxes, close friends marooned in a foreign country. They pop up in our inboxes, and standard procedure is to delete on sight. But what happens when you reply? Follow along as writer and comedian James Veitch narrate a hilarious, months-long exchange with a spammer who offered to cut him in on a hot deal.
This is me trying to come up with topics to blog, I am still trying to find my medium and voice while writing and learning.
