Spammers Leave Lagos, Stalk Soho!

The spammers have left Lagos and now they’re stalking Soho! The slightly eccentric first sample I’ve seen of Hollywood-centric email spam.

20th Century Fox
Twentieth Century House
31-32 Soho Square


The Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation was founded as the result of a merger of two entities, Fox Film Corporation founded by William Fox, and Twentieth Century Pictures, founded by Darryl F. Zanuck.

We are pleased to inform you of the result of the just concluded 2010 final draws of 20th Century Fox 100th Anniversary promo. 20th Century Fox 100th anniversary promo was conducted from an exclusive list of e-mail addresses of individual and corporate bodies. The selection process was carried out through random selection in our computerized email selection machine from a database of over 2,500,000 email addresses drawn from all the continents of the world. Emails were provided by the entire register domain.

After this automated online ballot, your e-mail address attached to serial number 09-34-64 drew the lucky numbers 1-23-41-65-0-72, which consequently emerged you as one of first ten (10) lucky winners in the United Kingdom category.

You have therefore been approved for a lump sum pay off of £1,000,000.00(One Million Pounds) in cash credited to file CFX/210/RN100.

This is from a total cash prize of £20 Million British Pounds to be shared amongst the Twenty (20) lucky winners as part to mark The Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation 100 year’s anniversary.

To claim your prize funds, you are required to send the necessary information to our helpline below:

“I think [technology has[ its made my life faster, it’s made the ability to succeed easier. But has that made my life better? Is it better now than it was in the eighties or seventies? I don’t think we are happier. Maybe because I’m 55, I really am asking these questions… I really want to do meaningful things! This is also the time that I really want to focus on directing. I think that I will act less and less. I’ve been doing it for 52 years. It’s a long time to do one thing and I feel like there are a lot of stories that I got out of my system that I don’t need to tell anymore. I don’t need to ever do The Accused again! That is never going to happen again! You hit these milestones as an actor, and then you say, ‘Now what? Now what do I have to say?'”
~ Jodie Foster

“If there’s one rule Hollywood has metaphysically proven in its century of experimentation, it’s that there’s no amount of money you can’t squander in the quest for hits.

“Netflix has spent the past couple years attempting to brute-force jailbreak this law. Its counter-theory has seemed to be, sure, a billion dollars doesn’t guarantee quality but how about three billion dollars? How about five billion dollars? Seven?

“This week’s latest cinematic opus to run across no-man’s-land into the machine-gun emplacements has been the Jared Leto yakuza movie ‘The Outsider.’ Once again, debuting on Netflix, another thing called a movie that at one glance doesn’t look like any kind of movie anyone has ever seen before, outside of off-prime time screenings at the AFM.

“If you’re working at a normal studio, you have one or two of these total misfires in a year and people start calling for your head. How many is Netflix going on? Fifteen? Twenty? This quarter? Any normal company would be getting murdered over results like that.”
~ Richard Rushfield
