Truly strange... reads like the rough plot behind a Hollywood script. 
Are you in a position where someone might think it logical to turn to 
you for help of this nature? I was expecting a certain African-like 
summation, but when it didn't materialize, I was left wondering what the 
purpose of spam of this nature might be.

I'm not into conspiracy theories, but I'm not inclined to off-handedly 
reject the possibility someone really believes what she's writing. If 
you are an essential nobody (as I admit myself to be), then the idea of 
spam picks up some merit.
