    Real or fake mail again?

    This email I get today from someone in Russia on my russian mailaddress.
    Is it real or fake?

    Hi,

    My name is Elena, I have 32 year and I live in Russia. I work in a library and after my work I allowed to use computer when it possible.
    I finded your address in internet and I decided to write you this letter.

    I have 7-year daughter Angelina, her father abandoned us and we live with my mother.

    Due to the crisis in our country my mother lost job and our situation became very difficult.
    The price for heating our home is very high and we cannot afford it anymore.

    The weather is very cold here already and we don't know what to do.

    We need portable stove which give heat from burning wood. We have many wood in our region, but we cannot buy the stove in local market because it cost equivalent of 192 Euro and very expensive for us.
    If you have any old portable wood burning stove, I pray that you can donate it to us and organize transport of its to our address. We live 200km from Moscow.
    This ovens are different, usually they made from cast iron and weight about 100kg.

    Please let me know if you can help and I will write you our home address.

    I wish you a Merry Christmas and I wish you all the best in the New Year 2009.

    Elena.

    If it ain't fake then let's just say it's very popular with Google...

    This post brought me here. I too received this desperate, sad email.
    Someone in Russia needs 100-150 K in cast iron?
    Pretty picture though - looks like something other than cast iron ovens.

    I bet that little dog sitting on the couch behind them is behind the scheme.
