The contrite of spring

Recently arrived in the spam folder:

Dearest one, I’m Barrister Evelyn Johnson. I have a confession to make. It’s about something wrong i did against you in the past without your knowledge. I have taken a bold decision to confess everything to you, but i don’t really know if you will forgive me?

I will wait to hear from you upon receipt of this email.

Well, Ms J, you can start by telling me why this message was supposedly from the Gmail account of “Mrs Ella Melvin.” That’s kinda hard to forgive.

    That’s her confession! She’s been lying about her true identity all these years! Evelyn, how could you?

    Why do these Nigerian spammers always write like an author of a Regency romance? (Frankly, they would probably have a greater return for their effort if they wrote Regency romances….)

    It sounds like she’s a high-ranking EPA official to me.
