...What the?

` After obtaining the key to my new lab today, I went online and discovered what has to be the strangest e-mail I have ever received. To tell you the truth, I don't even know what to make of it:


Hello,

I represent a network of over 20 million predominantly
United States online consumers who have a PC computer and have
opted to download our Internet browser upgrade or our Explorer
Toolbar that has FREE VIDEO CHAT and CONFERENCING functions.

I am contacting your company because a significant number of
users on our network have been searching online for information
on 'bible code' on 16 major search engines, e.g., Yahoo, MSN,
Google, Altavista, etc.

My job is to direct users from our network who are searching for
information on 'bible code' to one reliable and reputable
website. Can you help me?

Please call Monday-Friday 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM Pacific time because
I want to give you a demo and we can discuss if your company is a
good match.



Sincerely,


Virgil Gemao
Business Segment Analyst, Star Position

P.S.; We would also provide you with real-time tracking information.

I think that they are trying to trap you. We all know bible people are against science, especially mad science. Don't Call!

Congratulations on the new lab. Ignore the mail. It's junk, madness, or a con. It offers you nothing.

Concentrate on things that will improve your surroundings.

Cheers,
Monado

` Of course it's a con... of some sort. You're right, though; I guess I don't want to harass whoever might be on the other end.
