Thickly Sliced Baloney From China

Who knew they made baloney in China. This originated from a NetEase email address. 163.com is one of the largest email providers in China.

  1. lmao, oh these ones are so dumb. They can't even stick to the same countries. At least these ones can be avoided, i.e. one just can't be stupid. I was reading one article on the dark net where hackers sell identities. If it's on the internet they say they can get it.

    1. I've got an old blog post called "Bogus Spam Email". From the search results, there are some who are seeing if it is legitimate. It is sad to think. Anyway, it grist for the blog. I know everyone gets their share. It is just that they are so funny in how incredulous they are.

    1. It was tempting to fill out and return with a name like Kisemy Arse. With English being a second language you could toss some good insults and time wasters for them. However, it could backfire. But it is a thought.
