[Dshield] Russian Deals

I was just reflecting on the sad fact that all of the spam circulating 
around the planet is making us all more cynical. I have decided to turn 
this into an opportunity to have a laugh at the absurdity of the scams 
coming out. I just got one purporting to be a message from God. Even 
with snail mail I get stuff that is of the "made ya look..." variety 
because it purports to be "registered" or some other come on to get you 
to open the envelope. I make a point of showing my children (most of the 
time unless I want to see what the scam is actually about) that I rip 
this stuff up without even opening it. To me the worst offenders in the 
snail mail category are those that provide you with a check for some 
amount of $ but on the back where you endorse the check is a fine print 
contract that signs you up for something that you really did not intend 
to sign up for. To me these kinds of things are worse than the e-spammers.

Best Regards,
