Watch spam??

A few months ago I re-enabled the “catchall” on the email, meaning that I get all email addressed to anything at So email and I get it. I forget why I did that, but since then I’ve started getting over 3,000 spam emails a day. Luckily Gmail rules at filtering spam and very few of them end up in my in box. (The spam folder currently has 27,532 messages in it.) But this one came earlier this week, into my in box, and made me laugh:

Looks like someone forgot to fill in all the important fields in their spamming script before sending it to billions of people. I submitted it to The Fail Blog, which is why it’s got the big FAIL on there. But the weird thing is the insane amount of WATCH spam that I get. I bet 1/4th of my spam is for watches. Like, those metal and leather things people wore on their wrists back in the dark ages before cell phones. Check out these weird subject lines and emails though:

Watch the prices drop for that cool watch.

Today is a great time to think about getting a watch.

No, spammer, 1997 was a time to think about getting a watch! I think the last time I wore a watch was 1999. I had one of those phone book watches that could sync to my computer by just looking at the flashing computer screen. It was cool. IN 1999!

Sorry, watch wearers. I’m not actually that anti-watch. I do think watches are cool and look nice but I’m just not that stylish and I can’t imagine blowing money on a thing that does what my cell phone already does since that goes everywhere with me. The spam is just weird though. I’m used to business opportunity spam and “your rich Nigerian uncle died” spam and magic hair growing potion spam and this spam I have here that says, Your manhood will come back to you like a boomerang. But watch spam? That’s just strange. Do any of you get watch spam?


  • What the hell are “replica watches” anyway???

  • I recently enabled the same feature on my domain name. I havnt gotten any clock spam that i can think of though. Mostly i get spam that advertises free stuff as needing a subscription. Like “DOWNLOAD THE LASTEST VERSION OF ADOBE FLASH NOW” or Google earth, or Acrobat reader… I also get tons of nigerians, whom i frequently give out my skype number to, along with the pla skye and other random people i know on occasion.

  • I once received a spam email that Gmail so graciously filtered, with the subject “Make your boner so iron it will pierce the ceiling!!” I was surprised to find that they were not lying.
