If you’re going to spam, run a spell check!

For those of you wondering what SPAM may have to do with Karachi and why I’m bothering to make a post out of this one, here’s a snapshot of a message I JUST got. We can’t do much about the SPAM but this one caught me a bit offguard. See what you think. And as much as I thought I’d keep the senders number there just for kicks, well, I don’t know – what do you think? But for those of you who may miss the reference in the title, the correct spelling is “wrappers”!!!

Despite all this craziness, for anyone who eats TastyGold, do you really hold onto the wrappers?!?!?!?

    BB the sender’s number is always FaKe.

    GIMMICKs & Gadgets are available in abundance which can ‘HOP’ the numbers yet landing at destination.

    try calling back, it will always be out of coverage area… !

    LOL. Apparently, I am friends with the person who own “TASTY GROUP”…he’s a MBA from US and a smart bloke. I did email the link to him; let’s just wait what he has to say about that.

    i term these spelling as correct as anything – Reason is that these SPAM messages are sent to masses, majority of what is illiterate, so to make them understand its written as raper instead of wrapper.

    And i know that these SMS marketers do this intentionally!

    I don’t follow the logic. Why should a spam message by spelled correctly!
