Hogwarts@purdue.edu : a clipping from the Quibbler

Where, oh where, is Luna Lovegood when you need a good butterbeer cork necklace to go with radish earrings like this gem?

I cannot emphasize strongly enough that I actually did receive this unedited, unaltered message, as a spam email today. This is something I actually received, there is absolutely no Bonjee creativity involved here. It is verbatim, copy and paste. Oh, and do be aware—because this is the actual text of a spam message, don’t give any of your data or sign up for anything should you visit the linked page. It is not from me, nor do I endorse anything there.

Still, the writing here makes me look over my shoulder for the presence of a Western Onion writer. I will restrain from any commentary (though my mind races—it truly races, I tell you!)

Subject: Old Witchcraft Secrets – make your wildest dreams come true

“Old Witchcraft Secrets” will show you in detail, how you can cast powerful spells.

Make your wildest dreams come true
It”s NOT your fault that your spells and rituals aren”t turning out like you want…YET.
The truth is… you”ve been misled by self-proclaimed powerful wizards and witches…
and the truth is that 99% of these “professionals” are DEAD WRONG!
In fact, a lot of what they say will actually diminish your powers.
They don”t want you to know the right way to cast spells because if you did, you”d never need them again and they would lose their power!
You cannot invent “new” spells like you cannot invent a new tree. Everything is old. But not everything is known in the right way.

As you know, many witches and wizards are FURIOUS about this. Why?
Because it reveals the true forgotten secrets of witchcraft. Secrets more powerful than what they can do through their very expensive services…

Soon, everybody will be able to do this at home, more effectively, cheaper and faster….

You”ve seen some ridiculous prices on the internet for getting a spell done. It”s obvious they are getting rich off of normal people and their problems…
Once you know their secrets, you won’t need to give them your money!
I”ve personally tested this information, and some of the old forgotten stuff is mind blowing: it”s accurate, effective and quite easy to do.

  1. You know, my Purdue email has a preview pane set up, and I was just skimming through mail to see whether I had any sob stories from stressing students (say that five times fast!), and this was opened in the pane. Jessica & Netty (two of my office mates) and Erin (who was happening by) were all greatly entertained as I continued to read this well-crafted scam.

    No, I don’t normally read my spam. But this one captured me. Darn entertaining, too.
