Wow Czech Airlines, wow!

DEAR MS -last name spelled wrong even though it was at the bottom of the email they’re replying to-
YOU HAVE TO DECLARE EXTRA LUGGAGE AT CHECK-IN DESK AT THE TIME OF DEPARTURE.
PLEASE BE INFORMED 1/ONE/ EXTRA KILO COASTS EUR 16,-
BEST REGARDS
CSA CZECH AIRLINES SOFIA-D.SKENDEROVA

Caps Lock + misspelling my name + calling me Ms. while I’m sure I’m a Mr. = a forward to the main desk of Czech Airlines + blog post 🙂

Seriously, if they weren’t sure if I was a Ms. or Mr., there must have been a way around having to address me as either one. I signed my email with my first and last name. Couldn’t they have just made it “Dear first + last name”?

I wonder if Czech Airlines is like this everywhere or whether it’s just Bulgaria. Not that I really care. My question got answered, but I can’t help but wonder how much they’re paying employees like this.

Particular type of spam gaining popularity

Got another peculiar email like the recent one. This time in another mail box. The weirdest thing is that there is no link included in the email, suggesting that they’re sending these out to determine if your email account is active (since there are TONS of dead email accounts on the web). Replying to this could most likely double your spam in no time. So my advice: don’t reply.

Anyway, might as well have fun and use Guerrilla Mail to reply to this, which provides you with disposable e-mail addresses which expire after 15 minutes.

Dear Nubian queen,

Thanks for your sweet, albeit scary, email. There’s nothing that says “girl with a life” than a completely random email from a stranger. You must be very attractive. However, I’m very busy since I receive many, many requests from strangers with the same desire. Meeting someone from Africa who has the same hobbies as 90% of the under-30 population of any country seems like a tempting idea, but I’ll have to say no.

I know someone who’s very open to African girls like you and will be glad to share his wealthy life with you here in the Netherlands. I’ll give you his email, it is G.Wilders@tweedekamer.nl.

Good luck.

Sincerely,
Dear

All silliness and ridiculous spam/scam aside though… I’ll share last night’s adventure later today… Including pictures.

Nooooooo!

So I think I just auto-emailed my whole Gmail address book, since I’m now getting replies from service desks that they’re handling my question.

Dear Bas,
This is an automated response from the Lunarpages Webhosting Support Team to inform you that your question titled:I’ve added you as a friend on StumbleUpon has been received.

Great. I wonder if they can help me. Sorry everybody, didn’t mean to spam you. I have no idea how it happened since I don’t recall giving my permission to email my whole contact list (and you know how selective Gmail is with adding people to your contact list)… The quality of the computers here might have caused me to miss that though. I guess this pet peeve might one day frustrate people more than people walking REALLY fuckin slow on the pavement. 😉
