Default Phishing with prepositions

Thought a phishing Email which I found in my Spam box might amuse you. It started ....

I am miss Sandarin Okoroh 18 years old, from west africa.After going through your profile I decided to contact you for a preposition very important that I will like to discuss with you.

Well, she's come to the right place really I suppose ...

That's funny, if it wouldn't mean hunderds of more spam emails it might be fun to ask just which 'preposition' she has to offer.

Did you reply? You said it was spam mail. Was there a hidden agenda or was she really wanting to know about a certain preposition? Or did she have a proposition?
You see I love teaching prepositions

Yes, she meant proposition. It was one of those "I have thousands of pounds to send abroad. Let me use your bank account and I'll give you 50%" emails. Does anybody ever still fall for them I wonder?

i sounds pretty funny... i wonder what the "preposition" was about... what was written in the rest of the email?

i haven't got a phishing email in a while... and about phishing web sites... since kaspersky... never seen one
