From my inbox:
My name is Valentin. I'm 26 years old and I live with my mother in Russia. [...] Due to the deep crisis in our country recently I lost my job and our situation became very difficult. Now I finded a new job, I work very hard but I was told that this work will be only for a couple of weeks. [...] If you have two old sleeping bags, warm clothes, electric water-boiler, canned and dried food, vitamins, medicines from cold, hygiene-products, I will be very grateful if you can send it to our address
(emphasis mine) This won't be the last time we see this. Update: Something, I don't know what, made me check. It is a fake, but I submit we'll see more of these in real.
