We have been asked to have pen-pals in France, but instead of doing it through the normal barriers of a long term relationship with a school in france, we were given a web address (which I can't remember now) to put an advert up askin for french speaking pen-pals to contact us.
Now check out the e-mail I just received....

I'll be pleased to have you as a penpal...Vue la diversité des langues dans lesquelles tu t'exprimes ,I think that you 're intelligent...I'm aphysics teacher in my country since october 1997.Maybe we'll be good friends and perhaps thanks to GOD,later on ....!!Husband and Wife.Who knows?
I'm a single who lives alone without girl-friend since 16 months GOD(JESUS) changed my life.It would be a great pleasure for me to share this experience with you because I find it simply marvellous.In hope to receive back a mail from you,I WISH YOU "HAPPY NEW YEAR,365 DAYS OF HEALTH,52 weeks of PEACE AND 12 MONTHS OF PROSPERITY .
Bye,soon:
Friendly,DJO.


Now is it just me or does anybody else this is scary and terribly irresponsible of the college?

I'm sorry but that email is quite funny.

That is actually quite good, maybe an email prank?

try sticking your name in google and see what turns up.

I know of someone who had their details put as a joke on some penpal site and they got a letter from this guy who was in prison, when he got released he turned up one day at her work but luckily she managed to get rid of him.
Penpal sites are scary, just hope no idiot ever puts your address online.

One advice, always create another email address for such things like that, I have over 11 email addresses which I use for various things, and this is one if I am in your position I would get that email off the site.

"thanks to GOD,later on ....!!Husband and Wife"

I'm sorry but that is hilarious

"GOD(JESUS) changed my life.It would be a great pleasure for me to share this experience with you because I find it simply marvellous"
