Weird Messages That Come Through A Contact Form

By Daniel Scocco

A couple of months after creating this blog I installed a contact form. I had heard that it was the best way to protect myself from spam and to guarantee that I would receive only real and relevant messages from my visitors.

The first part was true, as the spam problem was manageable. But real and relevant messages? That was off by a mile. You wouldn’t believe the kind of stuff that comes through the contact form.

Some of them were so weird that I decided to create a compilation. Below you’ll find 20 messages I collected over the past months. Before you ask, yes they really came through the contact form.

I’m not sure who to ask this question of but here goes: I just received a window from Windows, I think. It said They had detexted malware on my computer (Imac). The affected software is Microsoft Windows Vista Microsoft Windows XP, Microsoft Windows 7, Microsoft Windows Server 2003. They said that there was an impact of vulnerability. Remote Code Execution, Virus infection, unexpected shutdowns. Recommendation was to download the patch from the address below: http://www.updatepr.org. They said for the link to become active, click on "Add to Contact’s skype button or type it in maually into the browser. I did these two things and the address would not go through either one. Any suggestions. I’m worried. Ann

Dear admin,

thanks!

    There are definitely days when my contact form feels like a magnet for weirdness — at least I’m not the only one. What’s really weird is I’m pretty sure that at least a few of the odd emails I get are in all seriousness.

  • Debojyoti

    I expected a lot more of this one

    Good to see I’m not alone in receiving REALLY WEIRD messages via contact form! LOL I hate to ignore some of them, because these people are really trying to make a connection, but I have no idea how to respond.

  • Ghazal Alvi

    I agree with you that installing a contact form has benefits like it protects you from spammy messages.

    But it is true, receiving crazy messages is just the other side of the coin.

  • Emma

    Daniel that was awesome! I get crazy messages all the time.

  • Jon

    Give it another twelve months and you’ll have enough content for a book.

    Pair up each “quirky” message with a suitably artistic full page photograph, and you’ve got a coffee table book celebrating the true individuals of this digital age…

    Considering that there are books of “The 10 most inspirational tweets for business” and the like, the possibilities are endless.

  • munawar am

    I just put the contact form, today. Hope to get something that is not weird.

  • Chester

    Daniel, you have a secret admirer! LOL. The one that says i love you may be one of your stalkers. Chill.

  • Stephanie – Home with the Kids

    Wow, and I thought my contact form got some weird messages. You win.

  • Dominika

    It’s probably the weirdest post I found inspiring. But I’m looking forwards to receiving some hilarious messages, too. Makes me even more motivated to work on my website. The guy before last seems to have a valid problem – probably just downloaded spyware. But why he asked for help on your blog? Could be panic.

  • Bamboo Forest – PunIntended

    This was hilarious!

  • Melvin

    I don’t know a lot of your readers are your secret lovers huh. lols

  • Asif Ahmed

    Hello my love one,

    Waiting to hear from you soonest.
    With love.
    Miss Sera

    You must have replied to that one! We would like to know rest of the Story Daniel! lol!

  • Rajeev Edmonds

    Daniel,

    This is hilarious. Would love to read the second post in this series. I’m sure there are many more filtered out.

  • Puneet

    It seems Andi is suffering from ‘May be’ syndrome. 😀
    (13th mail from the top)

  • Jason

    I see that I’m not the only one getting these messages! I think I won 8-10 lotteries just in the past month, inherited a couple million Euros and came out on top in some unknown lawsuits. Sounds like a pretty good month, right? That was nothing compared to my good fortune in January!

  • Farouk

    loool
    since i run a self help website i sometimes get a message with a single word “Help”

    i wonder why don’t people write more 🙂

  • Scott R. Sheaffer

    I’ve been receiving pure spam on the contact form found on my blog lately. It’s everything from Viagra to people wanting to send me large checks from their uncle in Uraguay. I’m sure we will all have to start using some kind of filter for this too in the near future.

  • Rajendra Pondel

    LOL, Intreresting.

    I was given the option of choosing between two of my posts. I don’t know for what. Just choose, it said. 🙂
