Receiving Email Spam Intended for a Different Felix Jung
I was tickled to find this spam email in my Inbox the other day. The thing of it is: it’s in German, and likely intended for a different Felix Jung.
As some of you may know, there are a handful of other Felix Jungs out there in the world. And most of them are German.
Couple this with the way that Gmail works (it ignores special characters, so emails addressed to felix.jung will still arrive in my Inbox), and I tend to get the occasional message intended for someone else. It happens often enough that I’ve created a TextExpander snippet for just this very reason.
Sometimes, I’ll get email newsletters from a service that someone else named Felix Jung signed up for. I’ll know this because the emails are in German, and trying to find the “Unsubscribe” link is a pain in the butt.
Today though was a first: email spam intended for a different Felix Jung. I don’t mind though, as I can tell it’s spam and quickly deleted it.
Think of it as me taking one for the team.
