I wanted to know how to speak it as a spammer. English in my case - you have to do is let Google and translated into other languages, you can go enter a message in your native language translation to Google. I use the Spanish language but also to other as German, Japanese and French. You possible to do several times for best effect, finally, again translated into their native language, English again, viola! Spammers to speak!  cheese

While I expect foreign speakers to make some errors when writing English, I would expect the patterns to be different depending on the spammer’s native language.  However, as you indicate by them running their text through Google translation, they all have the Google pattern.  I had wondered why they were so uniform.  LOL

That explains why all the spam messages have the same cadence. Excellent work FIK.

We’ve been getting odd one time posts lately, written in what appears to be ‘spammerese’, but I can’t find any embedded links…odd..

One of their techniques is to post a few times without any spam in hopes of lulling us, then redo their bio to slip spam in as their sig.  As soon as Doug or any of the rest of us see that, they’re gone.  That’s probably why you don’t see the spam.

I hate it when they have a story of sorts but several words in the story are sneakily linked to spamsites.

Fortunately, I’ve only had maybe one or spams in all my email experiences. But then again, I don’t rely on freebee email services either. But I do tend to come across this type of email in some email service supports from a few programs that I purchased before. No matter how I could try to explain the problems I was having, I just kept getting the same circular requests for more information is broken language. I ended up scrapping one of the programs because I didn’t know if the company’s program was safe to run.

I wanted to know how to speak it as a spammer. English in my case - you have to do is let Google and translated into other languages, you can go enter a message in your native language translation to Google. I use the Spanish language but also to other as German, Japanese and French. You possible to do several times for best effect, finally, again translated into their native language, English again, viola! Spammers to speak!  cheese

Don’t forget about the content: it’s not good spam unless it’s selling you penile enhancement of some kind.
