Oh, this is a new one for me. And as always, all these bank and UN representatives use only free email addresses such as yahoo, for conducting their business. Even if Sarah Palin repeatedly does it, the emails coming from a non-corporate address shouldn't be dealt for business.
I have a new email address!
You can now email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
