Default Team-Bhp Spam?

Just got this absurd mail this morning:

hello my dear,
Hai,am Naomi.
(naomi.badu@yahoo.com)
I have the feeling that this piece of mail will reach you in a perfect state of mind and in a better healthy condition. While searching through the net, I came accross your contact address at(Team-BHP - The Definitive Indian Car Community - Home) and decided to contact you. I believe and also have the feeling that in todays world, neither race, nationality nor religion will any longer posse a barrier to male/female relationships. Although, we do not know each other well but I will really like to have you as a friend or pen pal if that is better for you.I am a single lady currently liveing in West Africa. While I hope to hear from you soon, and also look forward to receiving some information concerning you, your family, country and even your personal life experiences. This will give us the opportunity of knowing each other better and be able to understand ourselves more. May God bless you as I wait to hear from you soon through this email address. (naomi.badu@yahoo.com) hope you write with love.
yours Naomi.

Maybe mods should hide all our email ids by default to avoid such random mails in an open forum.

Anyone else got this mail or am I the lucky one grabbing all the female attention?

I got one this morning. Reported as spam.

P.S - If some one were to check the mail-id properly might realise it could be some one from down south sort of

I did click on the banner on team-bhp a couple of times. It was the sony pocket pc advert irc.

Lucky guys! Jokes apart, please report such things as Spam and keep away from replying to these mails. You don't want to invite unnecessary trouble from "Africa"!

Lucky chaps; all the way from Africa!

Have heard that Indians are in demand in Africa, but never seen the proof. This settles that!

All the best, Sahil & Viper. May the best man, win.

I have never been approached by any woman - and I even have a Team-BHP email ID!!

These 2 men are simply showing off. Nubile African women are falling head over heels for Sahil and Viper. While I don't know Sahil that well, I know Viper is a macho man.
I think women must be going mad over his balding head and dying to kiss it on a daily basis.
Besides Africans know gujjus very well - you know how many gujaratis there are in Africa??

No wonder he keeps saying "Nobody dares get close" - that must be to keep his beautiful wife happy.

Go for it, I can testify that race or colour is of no significance. Race no bar, religion no bar, colour no bar, copulation bar bar.
