Heh, no need to do a Google search...look at the way it's worded. Anyone
using the sentence "I'm sorry for this odd request because it might get
to you too urgent" is not a primary English speaker. "London UK....at
GUN POINT", not impossible, but a pretty small possibility... ~4000
firearms robberies in all of England and Wales. Thirdly, no mention of
where 'home' is, and finally, why would you drop this on a coffee
mailing list? Saw it, deleted it, went about my business. Heh, but I
guess the old adage that there is a sucker born every minute holds true.
