Spam or Not?

154 words

Recently I received an e-mail from China with the following text:

Dear Sirs/Madam,
Glad to contact you!
I am a supplier of fabrics.
Please allow me to introduce my company to you. I am a company in China with a factory producing cotton corduroy, velvet and flannel. 90% of the product are for export. Where do you buy the bags from,please?maybe they will need my fabrics.
mayber we have chance to cooperate.And I will be your friend.

I found it amusing because it looks like spam but it also looks like it isn’t. Probably the sender has seen my Powerbag pages and thus knows I have some corduroy bags. But due to some misunderstanding (language problems?) the sender didn’t understand that my bags are home-made and there’s no business imperium behind them.

Perhaps I should start that business then?

The And I will be your friend, sounded like a it’d really be worth it…

Kind of interesting that he is (apparently) surfing around the internet looking for business outlets and new friends. I guess that’s one way to drum up sales!

Well, it’s unsolicited, and commercial, so technically it meetsthe definition of spam.

However — it’s also adorable:

And I will be your friend.
