Odd email??

No attachments, just this....

"Hold thy tongue, thou art going to die with a lie in thy mouth. Pest and Diseases Image Library.
Phultala has an average literacy rate of 71. Over a thousand people turned out each day to watch the proceedings, lining the streets outside the courthouse.
First World War through his graduation from Berlin University. Some of his rhymes are to be found on signposts in the grounds of the hall.
Kuala Lumpur, as there are many international embassies located in the area. The crew celebrates Freedom Day, a day where you can do anything you want, regardless of the consequences. Hampshire on 11 September and arrived at Milford Haven on 13 September."
Where's the con/catch?

It's solid proof that the world is safe as Skynet still has plenty of bugs and more than a few loose screws.

@doris, I'm sure this kind of 'nonsense, no attachments' email has been discussed before, just not sure what the conclusion was - possibly randomly trying to find out if addresses are real.

Re: Odd email??

I suspect that these emails are trying to soften up the spam filters which will then let the email through and consequently recognise the sender for the next real spam emails and then let those through too.
It's only a theory but thats what i reckon.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

You received it and it didn't bounce back, therefore your email address exists. Expect more real stuff unless your spam filter is effective.

You know, my spam filter's pretty empty, seems either they've given up, or they've killed a lot of spam-servers out there... Huh
