A day after posting this, I get spammed with this:

Actual, professional 55 card deck of casino style playing cards with the most-wanted Iraqis’ names and photos, manufactured by one of the playing card companies shipping these to Iraq. In case you didn’t already know, Saddam is the Ace of Spades.

A limited number of these decks are available. Order at [URL of evil genius omitted] for just $14.99. Plus a poster file with all of the cards’ photos included will be sent to you.

Either the spambots are getting far too clever, or the Zeitgeist moves in mysterious ways.

  1. talk about ironic, as I was reading your post I noticed a popup ad that sent me here http://www.greatusaflags.com/product_info.php?products_id=94&aff_id=8&aff_sub_id=13

    the site offers the iraqi trading cards for 5.95 including the poster

  2. I was gettting the same spam, probably before you posted your desire.

    I saw a banner for the greatusaflag.com offer yesterday and couldn’t resist … bought a pack … will see if it’s a waste of money or not.

  3. Looking for an address to send pre-payment for a deck of Iraqi "Most Wanted" playing cards.

  4. hey howard let me know if you get them and how good they are thanks

  5. Hey, is this a hoax, or can you really purchase these cards? I know someone who said they sent $19.95 to receive four decks and a 5th one free, but that they were oon back order. I would love to have a couple of decks. Can someone keep me posted?
