The Story of Spam III
This is the best spam I've received in a long time:

Subject: LOOK! Desparately Seeking 100 Lazy People.... Who Wants To Make Money

Dear Friend,

We are desparately looking for 100 lazy people who wish to make lots of money without working.

We are not looking for people who are self-motivated. We are not looking for people who join every 'get rich quick' scheme offered on the internet. We are not looking for class presidents, beautiful people, career builders or even college graduates. We don't even want union workers or trade school graduates.

We want the laziest people that exist - the guys and gals who expect to make money without lifting a finger. We want the people who stay in bed until noon. We want those of you who think that getting out of bed to go lay on the couch is an effort that is best not thought about.

If you meet this criteria, go to this site and join free:

In case you haven't figured it out yet, we want the kind of people who DO NOT take risks. If you are the kind of person who will consider doing something that's NOT a 'sure thing', then do NOT respond.

This is too easy a way to make money and there's no challenge in it.

If you can get to the website, you will be able to see the first home business in history that requires no work. NONE.

By clicking on this link and going to this website, you will be aknowledging the fact that you want to make enough money that you can quit your regular job and sleep all day.

We are not looking for a commitment from youand we don't even want your money.

As a matter of fact, we don't even want you to hear from us again if the idea of making lots of money without working does not interest you.

So if nothing else, remember this -

to make money without working for it just "Join Free". Simple as that.

We look forward to hearing from you.

In all seriousness,

This is NOT a "no work" program that will make you money without lifting a finger.

Advertising effectively requires WORK and plenty of it. Oh, for sure, it's not like picking cotton under a broiling sun, but it IS work, nonetheless.

And we DO want peoples' money ONLY when they see the value of our products, services and upgrades.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Cordially your lazy friend,
[Name deleted to protect the guilty]

Well, at least they've clearly defined their target market.
