The weirdest spam I’ve ever received

I’m pretty sure this is the weirdest spam/email I have yet received, and, like everyone else, I get plenty. Or at least I assume it’s spam.

This comes from “Information Technician <>” with the subject line “Requested update.” I present it in its entirety here:

Recipe: Overnight Fruit Salad


1 small head cabbage, shredded (about 5 cups)
1 15oz can pineapple chunks, well drained
2 11oz cans mandarin orange sections, drained
2 cups seedless green grapes
1/3 cups light raisins
1 1/2 cups cubed Edam cheese
1 8oz carton lemon yogurt
1 cup dairy sour cream

Instructions :

1. Place cabbage on bottom of large salad bowl.
2. Top with pineapple chunks, mandarin orange sections, grapes and
raisins. Sprinkle cheese atop.
3. Combine yogurt and sour cream; spread over salad, sealing to edge of
4. Cover and refrigerate for 4 to 24 hours. If desired, garnish with
lemon and lime twist, curly endive, and a grape.

That’s it.

Wha? And this frankly sounds like a pretty gross recipe. Though jeez, I hope I’m not offending some relative who has sent this to me disguised as a weird spam…..

  1. When God gives you lemons AND the recipe for Lemonade, you should take advantage of this info and make the Lemonade! Carpe Diem…

  2. One of my users got this email today.. a full 6 months after you got it. Same exact email, except it was from “Administrative Support”. The only thing I can think of is that some spammer is testing his email lists, send something that probably won’t get blocked and see what addresses bounce back.

    Still pretty weird (and gross sounding).
