Emails in the Spam Folder

I usually go through my spam folder every day or so to clean it out.  After a quick glance to make sure it doesn't look like anything accidentally ended up in the junk folder I check them all and delete to never see again.  When I was cleaning it out this week though I got a chuckle out of a few of them so I thought why not use them for blog fodder. 

The first email that caught my eye was from Mrs. Victoria, a dying woman who so graciously wanted to give me some money:
Greetings from Mrs Victoria,
My name is Mrs Victoria Lee; a dying woman who has decided to donate what I have for the good work of charity. I was diagnosed for breast cancer for about 2 years now.I have been touched by God to donate from what I have inherited from my late husband to you for a humanitarian investment, rather than allow my husband evil relatives to use my husband hard earned funds ungodly. They don't care about man kind, all they care is how to rob some money from me and spend them ungodly. Please pray that the good Lord forgives me my sins. I have asked God to forgive me and I believe he has because He is a merciful God. I will be going in for a surgery soon and I want to make sure that I make this donation before undergoing my surgery. I decided to donate the sum of $US 19.5 Million (Nineteen Million Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars)  to you for a charity investment, and also to help the motherless and less privilege and for the assistance of the widows and unfortunate mothers.

At the moment I don't want any telephone calls due to the fact that my husband's relatives are always around me trying to see if they can overhear my conversations and my health status as well.I wish you all the best and may the good Lord bless you abundantly. please use the funds well and always extend the good work to others. It is true that I dont know you and you don't know, but I have been directed by God to contact you for this grace. I will appreciate your utmost confidentiality in this matter until the task is accomplished.

Reply me through this my most private email.

Regards,Mrs Victor

Then today I was treated to an email with the subject "Find your Future as a Teacher" and when I read it, they were offering me some grant money.  Evidently they don't read my blog or they would see that I'm already a teacher and write about it in my "As a Teacher..." posts.  Hmmm. I wonder if they want to pay for some of my student loans?

Do you ever look at your junk or spam folders?  Ever find something that made you chuckle??
