I got an email today from some poor confused girl, named Adriana, who needs help moving and has a cat named Boo. The email was in my spam folder, but I thought that must be a mistake. I usually review the spam folder periodically for mistakes. According to her email, Adriana seemingly has me confused with some lost facebook pal. She has trouble with her love life, her laptop and her typing skills. Isn’t that just too tragic? What kind of gentleman would I be if I didn’t at least try to help the poor confused girl and her little kitty Boo out?
Here’s the first part of the email that I got (with minor edits for language):
BABE... i guess your not getting any of my email huh? ive been tryign to email u so many times but this xxx laptop is such a piece of garbage and keeps freezing.. anyways how u been? In case u dont know who this is its ME ADRIANA.. we used to chat a bit on facebook and then I think u deleted me :( haha.. anyways guess what...

I was feeling so sorry for her and I was tempted to send an email to her right away, so that the poor girl would know that she had the wrong email for her non-responsive friend. After all, she was going to be moving soon. Well, she almost had me until she got around to describing her current career later in the email. She sent her mysterious lost friend a free VIP pass to her online show. So, it turns out to be another spam. love bug bites again. Is there no end to the depths that spammers and their scams will go to? The email gets a little graphic so I won’t show the rest of the spam email. What a world we live in and what will happen to poor little Boo?
Excuse me while I go and hug my daughter’s kitty.
Update Note! Just to be clear, if you got an email like this one, it is a scam. I recommend that you ignore it and delete it.
