Sci-fi spam

by Joey deVilla on July 23, 2003

Most spam in which the author asks for help is usually of the Nigerian “419” variety. However, every now and again, a time traveller asks for my help.

It’s happened again:


I’m a time traveler stuck here in 2003. Since nobody here seems to be able to get me

what I need (safely here to me), I will have to build a simple time travel circut to

get where I need myself. I am going to need an easy to follow picture diagram for a

simple time travel circut, which can be built out of (readily available) parts here

in 2003. Please email me any schematics you have. I will pay good money for anything

you send me I can use Or if you have the rechargeable AMD dimensional warp generator

wrist watch unit available, and are 100% certain you have a (secure) means of

delivering it to me please also reply. Send a separate email to me at:

Do not reply back directly to this email as it will only be bounced back to you.

Thank You

This isn’t the only spam along these lines. Someone at the Kalsey Consulting Group got a variant of this email in which author requests specific time/dimensional travel machine parts.

Aside from getting some practice writing sci-fi, what do these particular spammers get out of the whole exercise?
