Natalia the Russian spammer

As is the case with most people, I have several secondary e-mail accounts I use for signing up for stuff. The more I think about it, the more I think that actually I don't need to do this anymore since Google's spam filtering is so good, but it's hard to say if that will last.

Anyway, on my Gmail account, somehow I got onto a mailing list of what I assume is an imaginary girl named Natalia in Russia. "She" sends me pictures all of the time to show me how pretty she is, and "she" professes her love in every message. What I'm waiting for is some request to send her a plane ticket or help her with immigration or something.

I marked it as spam, and I'm surprised at how often I see those messages in the spam folder. It's just weird how "she" hasn't asked for anything yet. Will some sad sap actually fall for this kind of thing? All I can think of is Borat's wife on the other end. :)

Actually it was Tyler looking for Bacon and some ear buds. ;)

Uh, so you aren't falling for my scam? I was going to ask you to send me a hot tub. Guess I will stop or try to find a new pseudonym. ;-)
