From time to time, we here at Brooklyn Currents like to share with our readers some of the spam emails that we – along with mostly everyone else who uses email – regularly receive. We offer these -- complete with the tortured English --  as a friendly warning lest you may be tempted to actually respond to any of this garbage, rendering yourself vulnerable to identity theft or other spamming dangers.

And maybe it'll give you a chuckle or two just to read it!
