Unusual emails

July 26th, 2003 | by aobaoill |

I recently got an email from a Dutch email address asking for my assistance. The writer, whose name I did not recognise, promised to pay me 15 Euro for each letter I would forward to him, claiming a need for (but presumed lack of) a postal address in Ireland. I think this may be related to the fact that the .ie domain is a selective domain, and one needs an Irish connection in order to get a domain.
Has anyone else received a mail like this, and do you have any theories or information in relation to this? Am I wrong, and could this be legitimate? I attach the mail below.
