Is This Yours..?

This afternoon, I received the most surreal e-mail ever... And I've received a lot of e-mails in my time, both serious and jokes, but this beauty came from our lovely accountant Helen and was 100% genuine!

From: Helen Shaw
Sent: 24 October 2006 2:10
To: Phil Key
Subject: Nun

By the front door I have just found a miniature nun. Sounds bizarre, I know (about 1" high, black & white of course) just wondered if it was yours???!!

If it's not claimed, then it will go into Sue's card making pot!

Helen


Addition: I've just noticed something slightly alarming: The lack of a CC line! So out of the entire company, I'm the only one who gets sent this! Mmm, an official investigation is now underway... :)

Today, I'm Most Angry About: Spam! I was away from work for 3-days and got back to receive 437 e-mails, of which 413 were complete junk... Grrr :[]
Grrr-O-Meter Rating: 5/10


Today's Top Tip: Single men - Convince people that you have a girlfriend by standing outside women's clothing shops with several bags of shopping, looking at your watch and occasionally glancing inside!

Yeah, I knew you collected odd items ;-)
How funny..first the potato in the gym, now a nun in the office?
Perhaps someone is playing a joke?

Attention single men:
Come go shopping with me and be my bag boy and I'll pretend to be your girlfriend...we both win :-)

Ben:
Yo homie!

Things are pretty good and full of business, work wise and play!
I trust you're OK? Catcha on e-mail or MSN soon :]

It's XTA's server and we use Outlook on each PC... The spam filtering works very well really and I always 'add to block senders list' on any that that get into my inbox, so it's 99% filtered into my junk box, although I have to check it, as once in a while a genuine tech e-mail gets junked :[
What would you recommend then anyhow?

Purple Donkeys:
Hey up Steve!
Ah, I thought so! I knew you weren't a real chef after all, I've tasted your cooking for a start! *kidding*
The trip was good thanks, but a bit too short really, but feeling tired still for some reason. I think I need to some good lovin' :[]
Is there such a thing as bad porn or have you become a porn connoisseur in your old age? LOL
Come into XTA whenever you like and bring a dog too, that always helps!!!

Love ya more... X

Kayla:
Mmm, yeah, an official investigation is now underway this morning! ;]

Ooh, cool idea, does that mean we can do other girlfriend and boyfriend 'activities' too??? :) x

You have a Nun fetish and you don't want to fess up to it, don't you?

Either that, or maybe Helen just wanted you to notice her?


Or maybe I am just insane.

Yep, I think I'm crazy!

(I just spent the last 3 hours at a pumpkin farm with 64 first graders. That would make anyone crazy I think)

Kayla said...

You mean like holding hands and skipping through the tulips?
;-)
Or along the line of naked twister?
haha

or nun of the above?

And if you stand out side clothing shops you can just look like a pathetic dork who wont go in. You might as well sit in a car outside a supermarket

Dakota:
Yeah, it may have something to do with the two Ribena berries in my office, along with my dog mug and other oddments I guess - No nun fetishes here, but many others though! :]

Kat:
Yeah and to think you and I are part of that 8mil!!! Grrrr x2 :[]

Sarah:
Fess it up, LOL, nice expression! Maybe Helen is coming onto me subtley? :]
Sorry to hear your first grader experience - That would kill me too!

Kayla:
I was thinking along the lines of Twister yes, but with baby oil! ;)

Hutters:
Ah, sit outside a supermarket! That would make a single guy look like he had a WIFE! ;]

That"email advertise like this to 8,000,000 people this week for free" is the work of the spam scum Robert Alan Soloway of Seattle WA...one of the worst spammers in the world. He uses false names and addresses to register domains which are used in mass spam campaigns. He uses fake registrations to avoid FTC investigations even though the site clearly shows it's his spam company. He has dozens of domains that he does this on, which includes and is not limited to sites at newportcorp.cn, advertisingemailcorporation.com, emailadvertisinginc.com, permissionemailcorporation.com, broadcastemailingagency.com, broadcastemailinc.com, emailadvertisingcorporation.com, broadcastemailgroup.com, theemailbroadcastingcorporation.com, broadcastemailcorporation.org, and countless others.

Spam site that is selling stolen email addresses. Spammer hacks into servers and uses viruses to send out millions of illegal spams.
The domain WHOIS data is also false/forged. Spammer is Robert Alan Soloway of Seattle, WA... one of the worst spammers in the world.
