This Spam Email Needs A Little Work

spam frozen where email subject line
 
Writing a spam email subject line is an experiment in psychology. The subject line has to be enticing enough for you to click on it, even though the email is from no one you know. So what sort of psychology was used to come up with, "Where are you, I’m frozen!"?
 
When the spammer wrote this, did he/she think that the person receiving it would think, "Holy shit! I bet one of my friends is trapped in a block of ice or locked in freezer or something! I’m not even going to wonder why the person who sent me this BCC’d me so I have to click on this email just so I have to see who it’s from. I’m just going to click on it so I can save him or her before he or she freezes to death!"
 
C’mon spammers. After 10 years of honing your craft, you can do better than this.

    I’m quite partial to the ones that say READ THIS EMAIL IMMEDIATELY: http://tinyurl.com/6poz6v

    I always get the ones that say “sexuallyu explic_09 ajfkaJFM390sl…” in the subject line. It’s like the guy who wrote was motivated at first and then just gave up.

    I am glad to see I am not the only one who has wondered about who the hell would fall for this kind of email?

    You wont find it so funny when your attending your friends funeral and having to explain to everyone why you didn’t help your friend trapped in a block of ice, now will you?

    HA HA HA
    The funniest ones come from the Jedichurch.org
    It started as a spoof in the office, but i still havent removed myself from their e-mail listing. They have some funny stuff on there. They MAY be just as nutty as Christians….but with Lightsabers. I mean really, can you contain light to form a saber out of nothing? Walking on water is one thing, but you expect me to beleive that you understand what R2 is saying?
