One reason why I've been a loyal Fastmail customer since 2002 is because of their excellent spam handling. Though I scan the titles of emails marked as spam, Fastmail excels at sorting the garbage so I never have to read it.
The downside of this, though, is that I miss out on some unintentional hilarity.
Case in Point:
Readers can tell that this email is clearly confidential since they removed my email address. After all, it's not like this is a phishing attempt, right?
I'm willing to give wi052814 a Mulligan. "Beneficiary" is my maiden name, after all.
You have been gifted $500,000.00,Usd For the Coved-19 FUNDS support From United Nation (UN) and INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND (IMF)

500,000 Usdes for coved? Just imagine how much hollowing out and concaving I could do with all of those Usdes!
Sure, power tools might be more useful, but whom am I to look a gift Usd in the mouth?
It's odd, though, that I haven't seen any news articles about the United Nation giving out Usdes to people like I so they can render objects hollow and concave.
Dr William Jones Jnr
I remember reading the medical journal of his father, [email protected] That's where Dr. Jones Jnr gained his passion for coveding.
Yes, I know that the bible says that I should not coved. But if christians don't bother to read that book, why should I?
I laugh, but the thing about a phishing attack is that it takes only a handful of unsuspecting readers to make it successful.
Still... when I put more effort into a two-sentence tweet than some self-styled hacker puts into a money-making grab, that's rather pathetic.
But what the heck... I'll laugh anyway.
