Default Is Perry o-k?

It looks like his email got hacked and sent out a plea for $ to the RS Mail List.

Just want to make sure Perry is safe and sound...

Default I just got an email too.

I texted him, but I just did it so I am not sure when he will respond. If he indeed is in the pickle in the email, he doesn't have his phone.

Anyone else get the email? The funny thing is the source code reveals the email originated from

blu0-omc1-s25.blu0.hotmail.com

Which is registered in Seattle. The originating ip address is

sender IP is 65.55.116.36

Which is in Louisiana.

Can I send the source code to anyone of our IT gurus via PM and have them check the source better?

If Perry is in trouble, I will do whatever I can, but this seems fishy.

Cool, thanks Groucho.
Let's keep an eye on this until Perry pops up!

Hello

Hope you are doing well today?Am in a great sorrow writing you this mail,I could barely think straight
at this point,I'm sorry I didn't inform you about my traveling...I'm presently in Madrid,Spain on short
program and as i write to you now, its unbelievable I'm stranded here,I was robbed at gun point
on my way to a hotel where I lodged and my money,credit cards,phone and other valuable things
were taken off me at gun point.I thank God for safe keeping my passport.
I really need your urgent assistance now,I just need loan of €1000euro to sort out my hotel bills and
other transactions or any amount you can raise for me.I promise to refund it back to you with interest
once I get back home.Although I still have some cash in my bank account but i can't access it here right
now,I have already cancelled all my cards immediately after the criminals took my things off
me. I am at a public internet library where am making use of the free internet access so that I can
contact you on this issue.
Please let me know if you can be of help and I will forever be grateful.
Waiting to hear from you as soon as possible. Please save me from been embarrassed.

Regards

Perry

Sounded almost like something that could happen to Perry, although the language was just a little off. I assumed it was a hacked email spam.

He laughed when I told him that it almost sounded like him, but not really.

The credit card thing did sound funny, but Perry does always show up in weird places, so Madrid Spain wasn't outta the question.

The language was definitely poor.

Thanks Daniel for your input that he was called.

The "on short program" statement somehow didn't sound like Perry.

Neither did the part about staying in a hotel

Sounds like someone needs to show Perry how to install an anti-virus and spam program
