  1. Now if I only had a clue what it said… I could delete with confidence. 😉

  2. What a lovely and very suggestive name. It reminds me of an actor in the first Pink Panther movie (who disappeared afterwards) who was credited as Turk Thrust.

  3. Thanks to Babel Fish, I learned this msg is a variation on the ones you used to get from Nigeria. The sneaky scammers seem to have moved four tiny countries to the west, where French is the national language, and thought nobody’d notice they’re handing out the same, as you say, “load.” Though it’s not just you saying it. I found a brochure about such etiennes here:
