Termination Of Your MOUNTAINCABLE.NET Webmail Account.


Just like clockwork, I get these types of emails at least once a month. This time though, I decided that I’ll poke a bit of fun at these morons. Unfortunately (or rather fortunately) my ISP provider blocked anyone from sending to them. That’s ok, I just logged into my JadedTech email address and sent it from there. So here’s my response and including the full headers of the email address. Raw and unedited. It was a quickie response with little planning at all to the content.


Wow, who would have thunk that such things existed on my Mountain cable
internet provider! Geeze, here I was thinking they were good at keeping
on top of such things. Well, guess I know better.

The world has been having hard times and I guess MountainCable.net has
been affected like everyone else. Sub-par spam software, not enough
anti-virus protection…heck, I’ve even been allowed to view porn while
surfing through their system (You’ll want to look up Brian Henry…..it’s
amazing stuff!)

So, I am surprised to see MountainCable.net support being outsourced to
Vietnamair.com.vn. I knew India was big for IT outsourcing but never once
though of Vietnam as being so interested in IT. I shall correct my
information immediately! Although I am also surprised that
Vietnamair.com.vn is hosted in Singapore! Wow, this world is truly a
Global Economy!

I’m sure glad you ain’t one of those scamming people from Nigeria. Those
guys are _real_ buggers, trying to get people to send them money. You can
read up on them at 419eater.com. Great stories there about people who are
aware of such tactics and how they can prevent from being scammed for
their life savings.

So, in keeping with the spirit of being ‘above board’ and ‘legal’, I have
taken the liberty of including the full-headers of your email address and
replied to all known authorities and reporting agencies as well as The
Dean Blundell show (www.edge.ca) because I think it should be well and
duly noted that Vietnamair.com.vn provides such a great service as to
offer to validate our email address and passwords on behalf of

And so, in complying with your request, please find my email address and
password below. Note, the email address you sent to is merely an alias
and only the one listed below is my _true_ email address.

email address:

Password: password.

(Do NOT forget the “.” at the end, otherwise you’ll lock out my account
and I NEED my emails to surf the Interwebs!!!”
