I was just cleaning out some of the approximately 6.022 x 1023 spam e-mails that arrive daily in my various spam-catchers when I noticed a couple of, well, let's call them "interesting" subject lines. The first allegedly comes from a concern called "Psychology Training" and is titled "Become a Psychologist Online."
Suspending for a moment anything remotely like critical thinking, I'm going to say that's an example of some pretty good spam. Nothing egregiously out of line in terms of the return address, uses proper grammar, capitalization, etc., and isn't obviously one of the myriad scams or schemes using the intertoobz to separate fools from their money. (Turning critical thinking back on, however, I'd say that someone wasn't thinking too clearly when they put that one together--who on earth would consider seeing a psychologist with a degree from an online diploma mill? I'd rank that one right up there with the one that actually landed a couple of slots below it, on how to become a CSI by getting a "forensics" degree.)
Another one, from a different spamcatcher, was less well-crafted (and has already been deleted, so I'm working from memory here: I make no claim that everything I'm about to say is in fact 100% accurate). The alleged return address was a random mix of letters and numbers, and the subject line was something along the lines of "You want good job? Buy online degree bacheloor/master...."
Again, someone was not thinking all too clearly when this one was assembled. I s'pose it could be deliberate misspelling to avoid filters, but wouldn't you suppose that if you were trying to make money by helping people to acquire fraudulent credentials, it would be in your best interests to appear at least competent in the spelling-and-grammar department? Leaving aside the fact that almost no one puts any stock in almost any online degree program you'd care to name, and even making allowances for the less-than-stellar reading, comprehension, and proofreading skills of the average employee in the American workforce, I would certainly hope that someone would catch something as obvious as "Bacheloor of Arts" if it appeared on someone's diploma or an academic transcript.
