Dead simple - share a subject line from your spam/junk folder that's made you laugh today. No other context is required, really. It's not up to us to to figure out why these companies obtained our/your email address, or what they're flogging, trying to get you to click etc. Only caveat ; keep them real, don't just make stuff up to be funny.

Today for me :

"Once a squirter..."

Subject line included the speech marks too, that's not my formatting. Which made it funnier for some reason.

A couple of days ago I had an email in spam that was the focus of one of Jim Browning's recent videos claiming to be from Norton about a renewal being charged.

Those less aware are of course supposed to panic that they've been incorrectly charged and so call the number. And so the scam begins.

I had a couple of hours free and fancied being a prick to them for a bit, so spun up a virtual machine, put Windows 10 on and dressed it so it looked well used. I oped a browser and kept some tabs open, again, so it looked genuine.

Then I grabbed a parsed copy of the Natwest homepage and set it up as a local website. I created a local DNS entry and installed a dev SSL certificate so that it all looked the part. I then wrote a script to count down from when the page loaded before inserting panels into the page reading things like:

"Reverse hack successful!"

and

"Access granted to. CCTV port 8080"

and stuff like that.

Then I called them from a temp VOIP number and let the fun begin. They of course wanted me to download AnyDesk which I did, playing the role of the dumb victim rather well. Once they'd got access to the machine, they pasted a Google document link into my browser (which was currently showing search results for Scottish holiday cottages). They asked me to fill it out, but I stalled them before announcing that I wanted to check my bank account to see how much money had been taken.

I loaded the "NatWest homepage" and then sat there enjoying the absolute panic from the other end of the phone when the scammer fell for it all, hook, line and sinker.

I then started syaing generic things like "Is that you I can see in the blue shirt?" and "Who's that sitting by the window"? I kept being put on mute whislt the scammer panicked and bought more of his twerps into the mix.

I lasted about 30 minutes listening to them squirm, swear, fake-laugh and threaten me whilst they kept the line and connection open so they could try and see what I'd done.

I ended it by loading a picture I'd prepared that simply read:

"FUCK OFF - Regards, everyone in the UK".

Absolutely tremendous and if it’s not on the ballot for 2022 post of the year, there’s something wrong

ED: Hurry now and get your All Natural solution before it is too late.

I'd have thought the solution was a gun, rather than anything natural. Assuming the ED in question is Sheeran.

"Why do salmon and rice go so well together as a combinaton?"

If you've ever done any searching for questions on Google and clicked a Quora link, lots of nonsense will start popping up in your inbox. 

 

Fucking hell, this is true.

"Is Poland a depressing country?"

Having just come back.... NO, no it isn't.
