New Trend in Spam: Emailing Lensmasters

Joining the ranks of the lucky ones, I’m getting spammed now by the email function of my lenses. At least I have to comfort knowing they have extra effort to go through to do this. Hopefully it will become just too much trouble for these people after a while.  Good thing age is no barrier!  I mean, wowie, I was worried!

Here is my most recent:

“Hi Margaret,

Hey, you’re famous!

Someone was just checking out your Squidoo lens “How to Make Your First (or Second) Squidoo Lens” and wrote you the following note…

kingsley_4fred@yahoo.com

    Got that too, Margaret. Good to know ‘age will not be a bearer’ in the relationship….lol!

    Hopefully, spamming lensmasters will not be a recurring theme.

    I didn’t get one of those (yet). Maybe I’m not worthy to be approached after I had turned down numerous offers for Nigerian riches. Darn.
