All your passwords are belong to us


I hate spam in my inbox. But every once in awhile, one comes along that makes it worthwhile. I got one of those yesterday. Here it is, exactly how I received it:

Dear SBCGLOBAL.NET Subscribers,

This is to inform you that due to too many Spam mail that you receive
these days, we would be performing maintenance in our web database starting
from 20th of April 2010 and this might cause some interruptions when checking
your mail and sending of mails from your account, to avoid your mail account
from been effected, you are advised to reply to this mail with your valid
password attached as this would enable us upgrade your account.
Please we are sincerely sorry for the inconveniences as you are to

provide your password here: {…………}. It would take just two days to
and we sincerely for the inconveniences.

Thank you very much for using our email.

Honestly, if you fall for that, you might actually be too dumb to be given email privileges, right?

It was nice that they provided a nice place to put my password, though. It’s thoughtful touches like that that make me realize they really are sincerely for the inconveniences.

I’m just sayin’…
