This morning, I was going through emails, and looked at my spam folder and found something that made me laugh. I have been studying up on some development classes online and integer & string values came to mind.
This is what happens when a developer makes a mistake in their spamming scripts and does not have any quality control. I bolded the amount below for emphasis.
Note this e-mail is been directed to you because during our investigations, your email address was found in one of the scam Artists file and computer hard disk in our custody. In reference to this regards, you will be compensated with the sum of US$17, .500,000.00 (Seventeen Million five Hundred Thousand Dollars). Meanwhile, the Africa Union has requested for evidence to prove you are a victim of West Africa scam. In plight to this regards the USIS have appointed a United State base Attorney (Barrister Allen Adams) here in the State to advocate on your behalf and provide the requested evidence to process the payment approval for your fund to be release to you.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: The only fee you’re to pay to the Attorney is the processing fee $350 for procurment of legal evidence to prove to the West Africa Union that you are a victim of scam. Also kindly request him to direct you on how to submit the processing fee $350
It appears to me that for the amount of $350, I stand the chance of getting back $17.50. This does not appear to be much of bargain. Where you place a period matters.
