This is what happens when you reply to spam email | James Veitch

  • Yayınlanma Tarihi:  3 yıl önce
  • Suspicious emails: unclaimed insurance bonds, diamond-encrusted safe deposit boxes, close friends marooned in a foreign country. They pop up in our inboxes, and standard procedure is to delete on sight. But what happens when you reply? Follow along as writer and comedian James Veitch narrates a hilarious, months-long exchange with a spammer who offered to cut him in on a hot deal. TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world's leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less). Look for talks on Technology, Entertainment and Design -- plus science, business, global issues, the arts and much more.

    everyone talking about how TED usually has highly informative and educational videos and this one is just hilarious,
    but I don't know about you, I have learnt more from watching this video than in most of my years at school.

    This is a marvelous funny take on the Nigerian money transfer scam. If interested, The novel "419" by Will Ferguson examines the tragic and dark side of the Nigerian money transfer scam. It is as gripping ( over hours of reading time ) as this TED talk video is amusing for a few minutes.

    I thought TED talks were educational talks given by experts and intellectuals meant to expand our minds with new ideas? Seems to me you're giving up on your brand.
