React on SPAM!

The Sonntagszeitung (the sunday paper here in Switzerland) of today had a funny article on the SPAM i get quite a lot lately…

You might know it, it’s one of these mails where it goes along those lines:

[snip]
I am Mr. Jeff Obed, Provincial Manager DBSA Bank of South Africa,
Capetown, Branch.
I have urgent and very confidential business proposition for
you.
On June 6, 1999, a foreign mining consultant/contractor with the South
Africa Mining Corporation, Mr. Richard Moss made a numbered time (Fixed)
Deposit for twelve calendar months, valued at US$12,500,000.00 (Twelve million,
Five Hundred Thousand Dollars) in my branch. Upon maturity, I sent a
routine notification to his forwarding address but got no reply.

(The article is in german, for those of you with a good sense of humor there’s an english translation by babelfish here).
