    That should be easy to track.

    Who sent it to you ?

    They sent you a bad link. But the site does work. I had to go there just for grins. :D

    I feel left out now. I may be on Ignore. :eek:

    I am still waiting.

    Does it come to your listed QRZ email address ? Any email headers or footers ?

    I want to have fun too. :)

    originating IP is 207.244.86.195 which is leaseweb.com, looks like it was sent from an AOL count by the other headers

    I looked up his email on qrz and sent a message which he responded too. The message he Sent back sounded like a scam!
