    It's just a spammer. Probably some malicious logic at that link. Don't click it, just mark that email as spam.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Thanks!

    Do not usually get any spam whatsoever. Is why it bothered me.

    Let ya go ... must finish cleaning up kitchen from late dinner, and get ready to watch the Republican Debate on Fox.

    I am a 69 year old woman. Been married 49 years ... if this twit is looking for an American husband ... she sure as hell isn't getting mine.

    Not after all my careful *training!* :D

    Also ... what are "known email nodes?"

    The freeware version of Malwarebytes is just a tool, it's not a firewall. You might want to raise your security settings in your current firewall or if you aren't running one, get help in engaging Windows Defender or whatever is applicable to your OS. ;)

    How would she know that ?To her you're just a potentially rich American male sucker looking for hot sex !I've run into a few guys who were desperate enough to fall for the Beautiful Russian schtek looking for an American guy and after sending her round trip plane tickets they disappear from view after the tickets are used .:D
