YSaC, Vol. 684: A public service announcement for spambots …
Dear spambots of the world;
When you are crafting your spam postings to Craigslist, please try to do so in a way that doesn’t call attention to yourself. For example, don’t use an extremely odd turn of phrase that doesn’t make any sense at all in every single post that you make. For example:
$400 / 3br – Nice 3 BR house in addition with cellar!! (Spokane)
Pretty 3 bedroom place of residence with full cellar! Two bedrooms upstairs, one ground flour with let-out. Room for cabinet, exercise room, or play area downstairs.
Hardwood flooring on the second flour, newer cookery cabinets with Corian counter and Corian work in sink. Added option is a playground not far from the front door.
Pets considered with supplementary pet deposit. Any pet allowed must be sprinkled or neutered prior to lease. Perfect place of residence for one couple, or not very big family.
Sweet 3 bedroom home plus basement!!
Pleasant 3 bedroom house with full cellar! Two bedrooms upstairs, one first floor with escape window. space for cabinet, exercise room, or the pace for playing on the first flour.
hardwood floor on the second flour, newer cookery cabinets with Corian countertop and Corian built-in shell. supplement option is a recreation ground not far from the street door.
Pets are allowed with extra pet deposit. Any pet allowed must be sprinkled or neutered prior to occupancy. Excellent home for one couple, or small family.
$400 / 3br – 3 BR House with shedders!! (louisville)
Pretty 3 BR house on great plot of land with a hedge backyard. This home is on one level for those tired of climbing stairs. Centrally located not far from restaurants, pharmacy, and shopping. Single automobile shedders, window air, new ceramic roofing in the bathroom, original tub and border.
Now is being repainted – can be seen but not quite ready for occupancy. Pets allowed! Any pet accepted must be sprinkled or neutered prior to enter.
In fact, if you do a Google search for “sprinkled and neutered” on Craigslist, you come back with a whole bunch of hits in a whole bunch of markets. Massive spambot fail.
Thanks, Julie, Jackie, and Ellie, for sending in one ad each, which tipped me off to this …
