Today’s Unique Phishing Spam Email

is purportedly from Benazir Bhutto’s son. He’s hot, of course, but his mother and I never exchanged emails.

I want to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt appreciation to you for your support during the hour of need. The enemy gave us a huge blow when they took the life of my dear mother. As a matter of fact, I do not know you personally except your contact details I got from my mom’s address book. I also pass on my sincere appreciation for the feat we were able to record at the last elections despite the absence of my mom who was the party leader until her brutal assassination. The victory was to all Pakistanies as it clearly demonstrated their committment to the course my mom stood and died for. Your support is conspicuously recognized and highly appreciated.

Losing her is the hardest thing I’ve been through all my life, but knowing that she was a hero to many people does comfort me. I know she would appreciate what you all did for her. All we just crave for now is for her killing be probed by an international team under the United Nations. It is the only hope we have of getting the possible plotters of her murder properly investigated. Only this would help us convince our supporters that there was some element of collusion between her murderers and agents of President Musharaf who were determined to get rid of her.

Please do acknowledge receipt of this correspondence as I will be confiding something very important in you when I get to hear from you again.

Very sincerely,

Bilawal Zardari

I’m sure that his future email contact will tell me of some millions of pounds that his mother left in the UK that needs my help to smuggle to Pakistan to assist in overthrowing the president. I will keep you posted if my spam filters don’t kill the second email off first.

    The person supposedly writing to you had in fact changed his name to Bhutto Zardari at the end of Dec 07. Perhaps he’s not quite used to his new name. 🙂
