Does your mother get all of her information from email forwards? Does she stay up at night worrying about missing children who aren’t actually missing, or cologne that can be used by criminals to knock people out in parking lots just because she read about these things in emails from her friends?
Has she replaced whatever notion of U.S. history she learned in school with information she pieced together from emails forwarded to her by people you only know as snookie3522@aol and grammylove2000@hotmail?
If so, you are probably distraught by your mom’s bizarre information sources, but don’t worry. You can stop her from being indoctrinated further by spam in one easy step: Just tell her that every time she opens an email forward, a random stranger at an offshore bank can access her credit card information and take a picture of her. Make sure she knows that this invasion of her privacy can happen even if the email comes from her very best friend.
Before you know it, she won’t be spamming anyone anymore, including you.
