More hilarious-obnoxious academic spam

It has been bad for quite a while, but this one is beyond ridiculous. Not a request to submit a paper but a request for a review, on a topic that I have no idea about. Straight from the email:

Dear Dr. Dirk Riehle,

We will be most grateful if you could create time to review a manuscript for the African Journal of Business Management […]

“Explicating and Categorizing the Effects of Copyright Law Violation in Iran” […]

Editorial Office: ajbm@academicjournals.org

From the “how to get a bad name quickly” department.
