I received this message on my server.  I wonder if it came over the Korea
list?  Did other members of the list receive the same message?  Does
anyone know its source, or degree of legitimacy?  (I'm not questioning
whether or not there are desperate people in Russia today.  Rather, I'm
wondering if the senders of this message do in fact legitimately represent
desperate people in Russia).

Dear Colleagues, 

Please excuse us for any inconveniences we could cause you by our message. As you know, now Russia has a deep financial and economic crisis. We already for some months  do not receive our salary. Our parents and invalids also do not receive pensions and forced to hand over blood to buy necessary for live foodstuffs. Because of all it, our children are constantly hungry and ill from cold and exhaustion. 

Unfortunately, everybody in our country already has reconciled and are sure, that soon all simple people as we will die from starvation, and our mad politicians will continue to play in the silly political games. 

Therefore, we, due to a service opportunity of access in the Internet and hopeless situation have decided apply to you with request to help us with food-stuffs, warmth clothes or money so that we could buy food-stuffs and things of primary necessity for our children here. 

Please note that because of starvation, we need mostly the following: 

a. Dried food
b. Canned food
c. Multivitamins
d. Chocolate
e. Coffee and tea
Also we need clothes and shoes. Now the weather here is very cold. Therefore we need warmth men clothes which are sizes L and XL. We need these big sizes as our children and we will be dressing under these clothes our old clothes. It will allow constantly being in heat. The men shoes we need are the sizes 44 - 45. 
Please send your help to our mailing address is:
