I get some pretty funny email sent to S&B, but one that came in the other day has to be one of the best.
I will warn you up front, the language and theme this email takes is not mine, I only quote the email -
from -firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com
subject In hell
Hi Bitch, your Mum still sucking black dicks ? See you im hell retarded bastard, hope you and your family die in hell son of a bitch, and don't forget to always check everything very well if you want to be safe...
It would seem I have a fan.
Of course, this made me want to play Sherlock Holmes and figure out who it is -
First – The domain.
easy.com is a branding agency based out of London that offers free email addresses, much like Hotmail.
No luck there.
Second is the email address itself - jetenculetrouducul
Apparently this is based on french slang that amounts to “Go Fuck Yourself Asshole”. Hmmmm….could this be my first clue?
When coupled with recent activity, I think it just might.
You see, I often troll message boards regarding Asian Snake Wine and post cross links to my articles on their product. Is it guerilla and juvenile? You betcha. Could it prevent someone from being cheated by their company? Possibly, especially considering – since I ran the series, it has had over 4000 unique page views from around the world. If only 1% had intention of purchasing…but didn’t in the long run, that is $5,000. While this may seem small, for transactions in Viet Nam (where this is allegedly produced) that could be huge.
Of course, how do I tie Asiansnakewine.com to this? I only do so with a few broad assumptions – and I put the evidence here for you to decide yourself.
- Asiansnakewine is based in Viet Nam – a somewhat French Speaking Nation.
- The actual business address is in Toulon France (the Post VICTORY shows that verification from PayPal).
- The email address being European based and have a definitive French “theme”.
- The Victory Post also contains an example of their writing style that seems to match the most recent email.
- Finally the Fraud post that showed the condition of the packed I received the snake wine in…..and the allusion that I should check everything I receive.
In the end, this could have absolutely nothing to do with Asiansnakewine.com, but it does allow us to have discussion and also reminisce about past blog posts.
I would love to hear your theories in the comments section below. Unlike asiansnakewine.com, when a tough comment comes in….I don’t delete them.
What makes this even funnier – on the same day I discovered this email in my Spam Folder, I got a very nice box from the great people at Ted’s Cigars. I won’t get into the contents just yet (this plays to the event on Friday), but I will say I felt no need to check out the contents carefully.
Ted’s is one of those companies that takes Customer Service to higher level. They also produce a product that I find very superior and would not be ashamed to give to any of my friends. Everything about their company says “Class” and I highly recommend them to anyone. Thanks Ted.
