Quote of the Day (Joe Queenan, on the ‘Idiotic Gibberish’ in Email Scams)

“Previously, scams from crooks trying to pass themselves off as marketers representing Amazon or Apple or Chase Bank were sleek and professional-looking, with no obvious typos or grammatical errors. Somebody out there in the darkest corners of the evilsphere at least used some form of spell checker before clicking the ‘Send’ button. The messages they crafted looked legitimate, making it easy for people to fall for them. As many did. But now all I get is idiotic gibberish from people who can't spell.”— Humor columnist Joe Queenan, “Moving Targets: You Should REELy ReaD Thiss Column!” The Wall Street Journal, Mar. 19-20, 2022
