Dear Friend,

Please excuse me for any inconvience caused by this message. I sent you this message from a library of our small city and I pray for your help.

My name is Valentin. I'm a student and I live with my mother in the city of Kaluga, Russia, that is 200km south from Moscow. My mother is invalid. She cannot see and she receives pension from the government very rare which is not enough even for medications.

I work very hard to be able to buy the necessary medications for my mother, but my salary is very small, because my studies still not finished.

Due to the crisis our authorities stoped gas in our district and now we cannot heat our home. I don't know what to do, because the weather is very cold here already (minus 12 degrees Celsius) and the temperature in the street can be lower than minus 30 degrees Celsius. I'm very afraid that the temperature inside our home can be very cold and we will not be able to survive.

Thanks to the internet access at our library I was able to find several e-mail addresses and I decided to appeal to you with a prayer in my heart for a small help.

If you have any old electric heater, warm clothes, electric water-boiler, high-calories canned food, vitamins, medicines from cold weather, any hygiene-products, I will be very grateful to you if you could send it to our postal address which is:

Valentin Mihailyn,
Ryleeva Ulitsa, 6-45.
Kaluga. 248030,
Russia.

If you think that it would be better or easier for you to help with some money, please write me back and I will give you details for sending it safely if you agree. This way to help is very good because in this case I will be able to buy a portable stove and heat our home during the winter.

I hope to hear from you very soon and I pray that you will be able to help us to survive this winter. I also hope very much that this hard situation will get better very soon in our country.

I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2005. I'm sending to you many thanks in advance for your kind understanding. Please excuse me, once more, for any inconvience I could cause you by sending this message.

God Bless You,

Valentin and my mother Elena.
Kaluga. Russia.

Well well, looks like the email is a hoax but it's a bit more to it than that.
I think this guy "Valentin" could actually be very poor when he started sending this email appealing for help. Then he received parcels and parcels and money from all around, which made him realize that he can actually do this every winter so he does not really have to work at all. Thus, he did the same thing over and over again. Besides, in the email he said the government has shut down gas in his district which is a very big issue that it must be reported in the newspapers, but we didn't find anything about shutting down gas in Kaluga in the Russian news or anywhere. So the Russian media and the people of Kaluga, Russia, are very aware of this guy but he's not caught by the authorities only until he and his friend had sent an email threat for which they were tracked down and jailed for about a year. And this was back in 2000. And so they're out again. Those who haven't heard of this will either ignore the email or be a very kind and generous soul not hesitating to help.

Εγώ το ανέφερα ως φαινόμενο της εποχής. Δε χρειαζόταν να ψάξω για να καταλάβω τι συμβαίνει.
