I love the random spam emails i get, one of them today i laughed at for a couple of reasons...

Subject: Please do

EVEN WITH OUR SCREWED UP GOVERNMENT!!!
Let's get this circulating
I HOPE THERE ISN'T ANYONE ON MY E-MAIL LIST THAT WON'T KEEP THIS GOING.
Happy Holidays....
.......... ....let's get this started now,
So it will be out there on the fourth!!!!

I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO THE FLAG, OF THE UNITED
STATES OF AMERICA, AND TO THE REPUBLIC, FOR
WHICH IT STANDS, ONE NATION UNDER GOD, INDIVISIBLE, WITH LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL!
KEEP IT LIT!! KEEP IT LIT!!
For All of our other military personnel, where ever they may Be
Please Support all of the troops defending our Country.


First of all, i'm not American nor do i live in the US or any other country that has states so how she could live in the same state as me is beyond me. Secondly, it's almost as if this person has hacked into the account that it was sent from (which was different to the one i removed from email content) and forwarded an email only sending it to mine.

I know that this isn't as simple as it looks, i know there is no real person randomly typing out these emails then keying in my address and sending. However there are alot of people that read emails like that and think it is real, they think they are real people and then proceed to contacting through Messenger or whatever. It's just silly.

If you happen to have stumbled upon this post through Google because you have had doubts over the content in the email, then do not fall for it. It is just a waste of time.

Same message was sent to my brother, who was in military service in Turkish Army last week. Because of its spam words he deleted the massege immediately. Today I made a quick research about that e-mail with a copy of it, and I came this page. Thank you for your sharing and explanations.
