Usually Spamcatcher does an excellent job of filtering the tons of spam I get daily, but sometimes it's a little overzealous, so I scan through it periodically.

Imagine my surprise when I got the following e-mail, it has been edited slightly so I can keep my PG rating intact.

Subject: Fake ID for Muslims

Need a fake license to get into the nude bar and see some [bleep]?

Visit [redacted]

Travel and fly on planes under any name!
Get job at preschool if convicted molester!

[Website redacted] Do it now!

CALL 24 HOURS 206-[redacted]

Here my voice I am from Iraq. My Muslim brothers I am here to service you. Praise Ala! [sic]

This is not spam. You signed up as Arab decent person looking for new identity information for new mission.

If this is an "Arab decent person" I'd hate to consider what an Arab indecent person would look like.
