E-mail spam filters really ought to have a setting to bring the really good ones to your attention. Here’s an earnest effort sent to me by some underpaid iSerf in Juarez or Kuala Lumpur:
Spam is sent from your FaceBook account.
Your password has been changed for safety.
Information regarding your account and a new password is attached to the letter.
Read this information thoroughly and change the password to complicated one.
Thank you for using our services.
I love the “what I did on my summer vacation” quality of the phrasing. I really believe that spam like this is designed by sympathy engineers to make one out of every million recipients feel bad enough about the home life of whoever wrote it to give the attached executable file a look-see. Maybe it’s a gif of a macaroni painting that says “I love You, Gramma!”
