They're not usually from Russia. I almost titled my blog, "In Soviet Russia, Scammers Scam You..." but then I thought maybe people would think I was implying anyone from that area was shady, which is very far from the truth! However, I couldn't resist telling you about it anyway, so you probably still think I'm a jerk. Sigh.
So, without further delay... The actual e-mail. I removed the last name, on the off chance that this is not a scam (which it is). But if you Google our proud papa, he was born in 1947 and won four gold medals in the Olympics as a biathlete and something about murder. I don't know what about murder, exactly--blame it on my short attention span. Beyond murder and elite sports, apparently he also is savvy in the ways of childbirth and stuff.
