Spam Gallery–Your Order For Helicopter

The Spam Gallery is a series of posts that give examples of spam messages, explaining telltales signs of how they are spam.


This spam message is just pretty humorous.  Here’s the things I can see wrong:

  • Poor grammar for a business email.
  • Times in 12hr and 24hr format
  • Currency incorrectly formatted
  • Email address of sender inconsistent with name
  • “Single choice” link in email
  • No contact information of company
  • No personalized greeting or other identifying information.

The email may pique curiosity, so that you want to click the link to see what the total cost of renting a helicopter would be.  Think of someone approaching you on the street and saying, “Wanna see a dead body?”
