Your urgent response needed

Your urgent response needed

Christmas and New Year have been and gone so I guess our Yuletide Demolition Sale should just become the id-iom Demolition Sale (brought on by the demolition of our studio space – check our blog at http://www.thisisidiom.wordpress.com for some demolition porn soon). Anyway, i digress, we are starting this fantastically amusing piece at £2.99 as we’ve checked and that is the cost to replace the luscious hand made rag paper that this oneofakind screen print is printed on. This is an original 2 layer screen print on some fancy hand dyed (by us) handmade (by somebody else) rag paper. It will look lovely framed so i’m expecting some lively bidding. Here’s the link

This entirely original document was recovered from an archaeological dig in the American mid-west which just goes to show that email, and by extension, email scams have been around for a lot longer than you’d have thought. I’m guessing since about the 1880’s judging by the carbon dating result on this unique artefact. And if you’ll believe that I can let you have it for the bargain price of one million dollars!

Oh how amusing to think of strong-armed cowboys getting blagged by this simple phishing email attack. If only they had the sophistication of us modern day internet warriors! Then they could never be fooled!

In all seriousness though I am a convert to the world of scam emails. I used to get quite annoyed with the amount of missives I received asking for my assistance in getting millions of dollars out of Africa – but now I just love them. I can’t get enough. I grade them on spelling ability, blag appeal, amount of money offered and various other key indicators then I pick the best for a re-design (although sometimes I can’t help but correct spelling mistakes). I really hope someone likes this enough to buy it so I can be vindicated in my obsession and forge ahead and do more.

Also, it is, of course, taken from a ‘genuine’ scam mail so if you are into scam baiting then feel free to email Mr Mark Aburi (at aburimar777@gmail.com) and see what you can get away with…

Cheers
