Spam or Real?
Hehe this was a little weird. I got this email earlier....

Hello,

I don't know if you've heard, but as of 1st December 2002 you are no longer
able to use a mobile phone while driving, unless you have a hands free
adapter. A colleague of mine went to Carphone Warehouse and they wanted 50
for a headset with a boom microphone. He then shopped around and found an
alternative from Office World. These kits are compatible with any mobile
phone and one size fits all. He paid just 5p each for buying in bulk. I'm
selling them for 20p including postage. We tried them out on Ericsson,
Motorola, & Nokia phones and they worked perfectly. A photo is attached.
Take a look and let me know if you want one.

That looks like spam doesn't it?....I read it several times and I was convinced it was spam.

It turns out it was a genuine email from my sister. Hehe.

I received an e-mail almost exactly like this from a friend of mine last year. The attached picture showed some guy with a cell phone attached to his head with big a rubber band.

I ordered two :)

I couldn't open the picture, it said no filter available or something - I bet that's the same picture as the email doesn't sound like something she'd write.
