A Man Has Been Responding To Spam Emails And It’s Brilliant

Spam emails are a daily burden of modern life, up there with your iPhone having terrible battery life and running out of matches on Tinder.

But one comedian named James Veitch has made a stand against the annoying internet scamsters. Tired of the rigmarole of deleting the constant barrage of spam he faced on a daily basis he began replying using pseudonym email accounts and the ensuing correspondence is both bizarre and hilarious.

Speaking to Mashable he said: I set-up multiple pseudonymous email accounts and began replying to spam. This must have put me on some sort of list because the spam came in a torrent and I replied to as much as I could.”

Here’s how one email chain panned out:

James has compiled his other email adventures into a book named: Dot Con. Grab it here.
