Continuing in the fun…. (though it’s not likely to be all that fun when I get signed up for who-knows-what-other-spam-lists)

You can benefit from our promotion and become a member for the incredible one-time membership fee of only $10! Most of our Members earn from $650 to $850 per week.

Hello Dr. Johnson!
It’s so good to hear from you. I have great news! Timmy is getting much better! And my dad’s boss, Mr. Ebenezer has apparently come into a large sum of money from a royal family overseas! Mr. Ebenezer was so overjoyed at the news that he gave my dad a big bonus and brought Timmy a “Knows Your Name” Elmo to the hospital on Thanksgiving where we all feasted on turkey-flavored Spam and gelled cranberry sauce from the hospital cafeteria. Oh happy day!
I still might be interested. There are some loose ends that I’d like to clear up though.
You’ve sent me mail from multiple addresses:
firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org
Why did you do that? Most faculty I know only have one email address that they use for corresponding with their students.
You never told me what University you work at. Or what your Ph.D. is in
And your response to my last note really confused me:
s nothing to be sceptical about- more than 10 000 people have already ta > ken advantage of our services. Dont let someone else take your place.
I thought this was just a research team for NC State University?!? That’s a lot of people on your team. Is ‘sceptical’ a particular research term? I’m not sure of the definition of that.
