I have two email addresses. One in my own name and one in my pen name. Somebody tried to hack both of them from Mexico, as can be seen in the following email:

Note from Ralphie:
I was just wondering what in the blazes anybody might think to find in my emails!!! Or what you could possibly achieve by using my email addresses!?
I’m poor as Job and have no secrets or significant connections. You really, really must be desperate to try to hack an email address
of a homeless person, who is on Welfare at the moment. Anyways, happy hacking, morons!!
