I just received the strangest email>>>with a cryptic message
Here is a copy. Notice the words typed at the bottom. Does anyone know what this is? BTW I blacked out the email address that it requested a response at.

Hello my hope!
I am not sure you get this message but if you got I want you to know
that I want to travel to your country to work in two weeks and I just
want to meet right man.I live in Russia and my goal is to leave this
country because it is impossible to live here for young pretty woman.
if you have not wife or girlfriend ,maybe we could try to meet?
I am Tayana ,I am 25 years old ,please write to me directly
to my mail - *********, See you soon!!!

2. Cryptic?
It's a standard ad for a Russian "marriage agency".

5. The words at the end are just random

They're thrown in to confuse spam filters that rely on Bayesian scoring.

It's just spam, nothing evil or cryptic about it.

6. It's spam
The words at the bottom are an old spammer's trick to get past spam filters that use defined word analysis by paragraph. If you reply, you'll most likely recieve no answer relating to this message, but put yourself on an "active" email address list somewhere for more spam or maybe even malicious attacks on your PC.

7. It's spam
The list of words at the end is designed to fool spaminator programs into thinking that the email has some legitimate purpose and let it through to your in-box.

Delete it and think no more about it.

9. It's a spam beacon
There very likely is an invisible image in it that relayed a message to the sender that your email is a valid one.

Once you open the message, even if you don't click on links, it references the keyed image and subsequently adds your email address to their spam recipient database.

10. Not a real person
If you reply to the e-mail address, you'll likley be directed to a porn site, and you'll probably never mmet the hot Russian girl, if she even exists.

11. It's a common ploy
To fool spam filters. Those words are actually the "body" of the e-mail. By putting a bunch of random innocuos words in the message body it slips through many filters. I get them all the time.

13. What the words are for.

The random words at the bottom are to get by certain types of spam blocking software (Bayesian filtering and other methods.) This is a very amateur way to do it. Most others take sentences out of random books, webposts, etc and string phrase fragments together.
