Strangely enough, with the bank's genius for imitating spam, that one appears to be genuine.

Android tablet being heavily spammed, lots of adverts and random downloads. Disabling the download app stopped the random downloads, putting an add blocker on the wireless connection stopped most of the adds, the only problem is it takes about thirty seconds for the add blocker to kick in after the tablet's booted so a few adds at start up. The cause is a mystery at the moment, I presume I've picked up a nasty from somewhere but I can't find it, when I do find it I'm going to take great pleasure in nuking it.

Parking charge relating to 19th Dec which is at least a day my car was used.  The numerous smelling pistakes confirmed the strong suspicion.

IME HSBC excel in sending spammy texts and emails which are in fact genuine.   Totally unprofessional.

I'm pretty sure it's what the taxi driver attempted to charge me for the 10 minute ride between Sandton and Parkville in Jo'burg the other month.

I'd get out of bed for it. Several tens of millions of these -

Oh darn, I forgot to renew my Apple account as per the expiry warning SMS received yesterday.

That'll be the Apple account I don't have.

An Andrew Baron has just sent an e-mail telling me 2M US Dollars was donated to me and to reply to an e-mail address.

I've done so and sent my bank details so presumably it will be in my bank soon. In the meantime I wonder what bike I'll buy first.....

If you're going to send me emails describing people who want to have various physical encounters on Valentine's Day would it not help to make sure they arrive before said festival and not the day after?
