Do you take bets that this email did *not* originate from Kazan, or even Russia?

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] September 27 2006 3:57 PM EDT

Looks like sent this email, not sure who the hell that is. But they have listed as a place to contact in the email header.

bartjan September 27 2006 3:59 PM EDT

IP numbers are more reliable than hostnames. Maybe you could mail me the headers?

So what is this? im not really familiar with this.

AdminShade September 27 2006 4:01 PM EDT

Henk, never heard from Russian Brides?

Brakke Bres [Ow man] September 27 2006 4:03 PM EDT

I did, but this smells like a scam, and i wanna know what kind of a scam

AdminShade September 27 2006 4:04 PM EDT

One in which they find out your address and marry you before you even know them :p

I never get the Russian brides spam, I just get emails telling me I've one millions in some foreign lottery, or have been chosen to help some wealthy exile from some dangerous country save his fortune.

'In me the Russian men saw only object for entertainment'...

looks like you're going to get some more photos of some blonde in a short skirt again.

I reckon you're suffering from amnesia. You've probably lost a couple of years where you were a customer of BrideFind, an agency that finds the perfect partner in Eastern Europe for those men who can't get away from the computer long enough to meet anyone.... :P

Ha ha ha ha ha ha, the tv has just shown a trail for a programme about an English guy and his Russian Mail Order Bride...... lol

Doesn't this belong under the "Happiness Is" contest thread?


bartjan September 27 2006 4:23 PM EDT

The IP from where the email originated is assigned to a Delhi, India company or person, but a traceroute to the IP gives a too low ping time to believe that. So Chicago is the next bet.

Wouldn't that be hilarious a russian bride business running right here in the states!

IndependenZ September 27 2006 4:31 PM EDT

Hilarious? Smuggling people isn't that much to laugh about. There probably really are organizations like that, you know..

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] September 27 2006 4:33 PM EDT

Errr, well hilarious in a bad way I guess. This guy at my last job married someone from Russia. And my GF was totally convinced that she was a Mail Order bride, but I dunno about that. She wasn't pretty enough to be one IMNSHO.

bartjan September 27 2006 4:35 PM EDT

It sounds like it also could be a 419...

AdminShade September 27 2006 4:39 PM EDT

a '419' ?

bartjan September 27 2006 4:52 PM EDT

A type of email scam. Usually involves a deceased General and cash that needs to leave the country.

Miandrital September 27 2006 4:55 PM EDT

Site that does funny stuff to 419 scammers.
I was under the impression that 419 scams are those that come from Nigeria only. However, I do think that is some kind of scam.

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] September 27 2006 6:16 PM EDT

Aww.. I enjoyed the first part!!!

I never get interesting spam like this. All I get it "Take Meds to increase your size!" types.. :'(

How come I don't get any spam, well except from sympatico itself, I guess their spam blocker works??

QBJohnnywas September 27 2006 7:19 PM EDT

Russian Lady Spam. Does that come in tins down the local store near to where the hills have eyes?

PirateKing September 27 2006 9:37 PM EDT

Sounds hot, Verifex. You should send that email, along with your address, SS#, bank account #, and blood type. :P
