    Hi guys, for the past few years some guy in India has been emailing, because he thinks I'm an Indian friend of his, nothing nasty and he sounds like a nice enough lad.

    I've told him I'm not Shantha, I've told him a 95 year old aussie woman with a big dog and a even bigger younger husband,
    I've blocked his emails, but he is one smart boy and always finds a way to get through.

    Palani sends,Indian holiday cards,Valentine and general chitchat messages about what he's doing and about "our mutual" friends?
    He really believes he knows me!

    So guys what does Vanakkam Shantha mean?
    He calls me Shatha, Shantha...what does it mean?
    and things like "Did you meet siva in chennai? I am sure you do.."

    As I said, he's seems a nice enough smart boy,and by his email is now working in protein degradation and modification at the Institute for genetics,University of köln.

    I cannot convince him I'm not Shantha and don't have a clue who siva is!

    So would you guys like to meet him, I thought perhaps I could email him and say meet some of my friends...and you could
    tell him I'm not who he thinks I am...
    and you never know, you guys might build
    up a nice friendship with him.
    As I said, he sounds like a nice person.
    Just that he's got the wrong girl lol!

    They will have to go a long way to meet him, this is in Germany I believe "University of köln" or to be correct "Universität zu Köln" [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

    Yes, the lad just been transfered there, just thought the boys could exchange emails and perhaps make a new friend, the boy
    (over the years) seems nice enough.

    The kid is around 20 and they might have somethings in common [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]...that way he would stop sending me chatty emails about siva and palladan and whoever meeting whereever lol!

    Sound pretty naughty to me, if that is a reference to the Siva.

    You should ask him if he wants to meet Kali.

    Blocked his emails and he still gets through?Be careful. Sounds pretty slick.

    I will and have been careful Deelz, but I don't think he's a creep just a misguided kid who thinks I'm a friend from india.

    I've only emailed him once about 2 years ago to say you've got the wrong person but he laughed and virtually said "very funny shantha, have you seen so and so lately!

    I only hear from him on indian holidays or odd times, so it's not like he inundates me mail.

    It's not a big deal...I'll just keep blocking him and he'll just keep finding a way to get through until one day he catches up with shantha and realizes I'm not who he thinks I am.
    ps, I'll use the Kali one if I hear from him again this month [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Tell him to go check out your new homepage at:
    http://members.tripod.com/shantha_h/

    and tell him you cannot be contacted on your usual e-mail from now on so use the e-mail link there.

    I've sent him off to the link perfectG posted and blocked him again...hope it's the last, but somehow come the next indian holiday I really won't be surprised if he's wishing me happy whatever<IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon12.gif>
    No Baccilus, you don't want to find a girl that way, could turn out to be a 95 year old woman from oz with a big dog and bigger husband lol!

    Darn! Wish I'd seen this earlier.

    Before sending the email with the link, I would have changed my name to Shantha, and return address to the hotmail email address at that site. Then, the guy would have responded to that address, and even if it wasn't the right Shantha, at least he would be writing to a "Shantha" from that point on thinking it was the right one.
