I really like this one. It was sent to the owners of a Yahoo group via the yahoogroup owners address. Too funny! At least send it to a real address and not a group address that nobody is gonna use to register with ebay.

wire transfer services through Western Union or
MoneyGram. These payment methods are unsafe when
paying someone you don't know. Learn more about
sending payments.

Me, I'm just weird. I seem to keep sending myself emails. It always seems to be the same one – I keep telling myself that we ship worldwide. Fact is, it's getting so bad I'm thinking about reporting myself to someone. Meanwhile, of course I don't read the things, they get filtered straight into the spam basket.
