Dear Cole.
The horse trailer is in good health but will require special hipment by boat. Please send an advance and I will make arraignments for you. I can not offer you an offline price as I am currently online. I'm sure your wife will enjoy a transportation device designed for livestock as a symbol of your undying love for her.


Now, while I'm sure I could of had much more fun with this, a box of tea says I'll get a reply and will be able to waste this guys time, thus reducing the amount of time he can spend asking about the health of other horse trailers for sale.


And yes, I made those spelling errors on purpose...

Hey do you have a cat carrier hanging around? My dad's birthday is coming up. I'll pay you in Confederate bonds...

Like I always say about unhealthy horse trailers...

Wait, what?!

Did you forget to say "horse not included" ? :D

If you run out of ideas, or just want to see what some others have done in this area, you can google for:

Church of the painted breast

It's okay to go there, really, because all the breasts, painted and not, are (well, dissapointingly enough for me) male. It's a classic in The Art of Scamming The Scammer.

Oh, and there's another story, about selling a laptop computer, I think it was called the P-P-P-Powerbook. I recall that being a longish story, but well written and chock-filled with drama. A+++, Would Recommend Reading Again!

Why yes, I do have a cat carrier. It has never carried cats, so it has much value for you. Please send a certificate of authenticity that was not printed on a home computer for the bonds and I will gladly make the trade. Also, I have some sick relatives near you. If I send you some check, you would deliver cash to them tomorrow, yes?

Haha, there's a great one somewhere of a horse person who strung a spammer along for weeks.

Sadly, no reply yet. I may have lost him, but you never know with these busy spammers.... they lay low a few days and then *boom*

You've now confirmed your email address is a good one in spam land.

Expect an increase.

It's worth it!
Besides, this spammer came off a ad page, not a list... Regardless, I can take w/e they dish out and my spam filter misses.
