What is this? Christmas eve for small-time scammers with big plans? I’m swamped in a year-end tidal wave of emails featuring new and old scams. And it looks as if there’s a new crop of iscammers picking up the stick. Really bad formatting, spelling that is worse than mine, and this one doesn’t even seem to know his/her email address. Last time I looked .ro was Romania, and to my best knowledge there just isn’t any one-letter domains. At least not withing the .ro domain.
