A fascinating bit of spam ...

I have, from time to time over the past few months, gotten the below e-mail from various German domains (i.e. with ".de" extensions). While I've not done a side-by-side comparison, they all look to be pretty much identical except for the contact info and various "spam codings" at the end of them.

While the current version has a contact e-mail at a domain which IS selling something, this has not been the case previously ... in other words, here is a piece of SPAM that has no commercial purpose ... the sender is simply asking for resources for ... well read it for yourself:


We need a vendor who can offer immediate supply.
I'm offering $5,000 US dollars just for referring a vender which is
(Actually RELIABLE in providing the below equipment) Contact details
of vendor required, including name and phone #. If they turn out to be
reliable in supplying the below equipment I'll immediately pay you
$5,000. We prefer to work with vendor in the Boston/New York area.

1. The mind warper generation 4 Dimensional Warp Generator # 52 4350a
series wrist watch with z80 or better memory adapter. If in stock the
AMD Dimensional Warp Generator module containing the GRC79 induction
motor, two I80200 warp stabilizers, 256GB of SRAM, and two Analog
Devices isolinear modules, This unit also has a menu driven GUI
accessible on the front panel XID display. All in 1 units would be
great if reliable models are available

2. The special 23200 or Acme 5X24 series time transducing capacitor
with built in temporal displacement. Needed with complete
jumper/auxiliary system

3. A reliable crystal Ionizor with unlimited memory backup.

4. I will also pay for Schematics, layouts, and designs directly
from the manufature which can be used to build this equipment
from readily available parts.

If your vendor turns out to be reliable, I owe you $5,000.

Email his details to me at: (edited out)

Please do not reply directly back to this email as it will
only be bounced back to you.

Does anybody know anything about this beyond what's in the spam? Needless to say, the concept of it is fascinating, and almost plausible (in an "if this was true, that could happen" sort of way). The sender seems to be targeting "metaphysical/newage" lists, since I only seem to get this at my Eschaton mail. I was sort of hoping that somebody out there in LJ-land might have some scoop on this.
