Date: Tue, 14 Mar 2000 22:06:25 +0100


I'm a poor litle bosnian child, who got an computer for my birthday 1/2 a year ago. But i can't use it anymore, because i got my legs and arms blown off by a serbian mine.

Therefore, I need your help to hack into Slobodan Milosevic's
computer system and mess up his computers so that all the toilets in his palace will splash instead of flush. i would do this myself if i could (I am allowed by Slobodans security boss), but it's a bit hard to run unix-commands with my tounge.

Thnx for helping me!

PS. I think you're good looking, you're like an icon to me
PSPS. pleasepleasepleasepleasepleaseplease!
PSPSPS. it's my father who has typed this in; i had a spasm in my tounge

Listen you and your dummy hackers you all cant do anything coz all of you
are pigs , mother ****ers , u want to show the ppl that u r on something only
for ****ing those girls and u all are such a dummy,

Well my net is IRC.ARABCHAT.ORG ( IRC )
if you r men show me what u can do to our net . For sure you can NOT do anything then put ur fingers in your *** dummies.

Carolyn replies: This email came from the same loser who was spamming hackers last week with an appeal to hack irc.arabnet.org. When that didn't work, he tried spamming hackers with an insult supposedly from irc.arabchat.org hoping to incite retaliation. This time I've included full headers so you can see how poorly he forged this email.

Subject: Thanks

I've become a regular visit to your site and I've used the information
to setup and maintain secures servers where I work running Linux and Windows NT. (NT wasn't my choice:)) I read the letter sent to you by "Phederal Phelony" and was interested in viewing (Only viewing:)) his Web Site.A quick search found it no problem.
There I read the story of how he was recently arrested for Phreaking. If you don't wish to put up the URL I think at least his story would make a great addition to the site:) Thanks for all of your help, and providing a great resource!


Carolyn replies: I checked out that web site. According to Phederal Phelony, on March 7 he was arrested and charged with a felony for faxing an obscene bomb threat to someone. He is now undergoing court-ordered counseling and hopefully will pull himself together. That's probably why his web site is now down. The really sad thing is that just before he was busted, the Phone Losers of America chose his as a must-see site. It seems that they really liked the "hit list" and other hate material at Phederal Phelony's site. Sadly, the kid actually thought the Phone Losers' approval meant he was something other than, well, a phone loser.
