the YASNS spammer unmasked

At danah’s suggestion, I took the bait and sent a reply to the YASNS spammers. I picked “Carrie,” and sent her a note full of spelling mistakes and a run-on sentence:

“Carrie” replied, pushing an adult personals site:

Hey, thanks for getting in touch with me again! I am definitely ready
to hook this up with you. According to Myspace, we live really close so
we could meet up whenever you want. Come check out my newest personal
at http://www.centralpassion.com/carrie00 My profile is listed inside
the site under "BackSideBabe". I decided to post my personal info (i.e.
phone # and my personal email address) on this site for 3 simple
reasons. 1) It's DISCREET 2)I never have to worry about being contacted by
children since only adults are allowed in the site and 3)I know all the
replies I receive are genuine. Well that’s about it for now, I really do
hope to meet up with you...and let's make it soon!

Talk later,
Carrie

    My actual, seldom-updated blog: http://www.harvardsketch.com/randall/

    I actually love online communities (Friendster, for example is great for crashing party announcements), so I generally respond positively and genuinely to someone who messages me. Sure, it did seem suspicious when I looked up her profile (0 friends in New York?!) and the original email seemed form-letterish, but I still gave the benefit of the doubt. Now, the 2nd email is just ridiculous.

    Below is my experience with this BackSideBabe:

    Subject: hi Randy

    Message: Good afternoon, I’m Jen. I was browsing and happened on your ad and I thought I’d drop you a line. I recently moved to New York and I thought this would be a great way to meet new people. Outside of my work and my neighbor I don’t know anyone around here. So tell me more about yourself? What brings you to world of online personals? To be honest I liked your ad and thought your pic was cute and according to the site we live pretty close by each other. We should meet up for coffee or someting, it’d give us a chance to really get to know each other. LOL, sorry I have a tendency to ramble on sometimes, tell you what if you’re interested just drop me a line and we can get the ball rolling. I rarely have time to check this mail but you can always get a message to me at jen444kay@hotmail.com. Well the day is getting away from me, I should probably get back to work.. I hope to hear from you soon.
    Jen

    Hi Jen,

    The pleasure is mine. I’ve never actually thought of Friendster as a personals site, though. I’ve been on Friendster for most of its existence. I first joined when a few kids at my school joined and they told people about it, who told people about it, who told people about it… and everyone had a profile within a few weeks. I believe ‘viral marketing’ is the official term for this sort of occurance. (reminds me of a certain shampoo commercial…)

    Although I would love to grab coffee or eats with you, right now I’m a little far away (Los Angeles, to be exact). I don’t really know when I am moving back to New York, but I will be in New York in two weeks. What are you doing Friday the 14th or Saturday the 15th?

    -Randy

    Hey Randy, thanks for getting in touch! So how’s your Friday going. Any plans this wekend? A bit about me….I’m a Chicago woman, who moved to the New York area for my job (sales) and I officially know 0 people. I never imagined a change like this would be so hard and lonely to say the least. I definitely want to meet up with you soon if you’re down! According to myspace, I live close by so we could really meet whenever you want. GREAT NEWS (if you’re a football fan) my boss gave me 2 tickets to the Giants/Rams game for this Sunday…Care to come with me???

    I posted A LOT more pics (as I said I’d give you!) on my newest personal, some are topless but NOT bottomless, but they’re at http://www.localhello.com/jen00 My profile is listed in that site under “BackSideBabe”. I wanted to post my personal info (i.e. phone # and my personal email address) there for 3 real simple reasons. 1) It’s DISCREET! 2) I never have to worry about being contacted by children since only adults are allowed in the site and 3) I know all the replies I receive are genuine. I’ve met 3 people off of this site, and it’s truly made me feel safe. I had a nightmare of an experience in the past that I don’t want to happen again. Thats all I’ve got to say right now, let’s just plan on meeting soon! Cause you know what that means… ;)

    Give me a call!

    Jen

    Te recomiendo a veces otros fotos, por que esta foto en Friendster no parece genuina.

    Chao,

    Hey Sexy! How are you?? Thanks for getting in touch! I am so glad you wrote, actually I was hoping I would hear from you so this is great. So, with regard to hooking up, I did want to tell you it has been a while for me and I really miss being with a man. If you can make some time for me at all today that would be great. I was thinking a few drinks would be good to help us get a little more comfortable around each other…you never know where it may lead then. Let’s just say you have no idea how ready I am for you to break my little dry spell, it really has been a while for me. I did want to address a few things beforehand – just so you know my last STD & HIV tests were about 4 months ago and the results came back clean. You? Also, I insist on condoms (except during oral) and that’s non-negotiable for me. That being said, I should also tell you what gets me hot…a few things I don’t think I mentioned in my profile are like, I get wet from things like passionate kissing (along with a few well placed fingers), my breasts are very sensitive so almost anything you do will get my nipples hard, I enjoy watching movies before/during sex, I enjoy some use of toys, and I occasionally like being tied up. I’m also open to new suggestions. How about you? What are some of your turn-ons? Well I’m babbling on and blowing my cover a little here but I wanted to get back to you while I had a minute. You can call my cell whenever you want so we can set something up, I posted my number for you (and a bunch more pics!) at my favorite personal site, it’s at http://www.fungirlsweb.com/danielle2k7 My profile is listed inside that site under “backsidebabe”. I use this site mainly cause a couple of my friends use it and it’s discreet and safe. It’s definitely much better than most sites I have tried plus it has some great pics of me! I do hope to meet real soon but if it’s not today let’s definitely do something this week.

    Call me!!

    Danielle

    Interesting! But you should check your comments more carefully. You seem to be getting hit some spam comments. I had a similar issue myself. So nowadays I look at everything carefully.
