Analysis:

This one is an easy one. First off, the "E-mail from the Future" thing has lost its novelty. Second, I hadn't notice this until just now but an overwhelming number of e-mail spam I get has the same address past the "@" sign.

@www4.lapprogram.com

It's now safe to assume that any e-mails from this address is certifiably spam. That and the whole future thing should be a pretty big tip-off, if my harping on it wasn't indication enough.

More importantly, the approach this time around is what appears to be an invitation from a lady for a date or... something; she's pretty ambiguous about what she wants. Second "I'm a black belt in karate" is not a good pick-up line, no matter who's delivering it.

Another interesting, and recurring, element of this equation is the web address that supposedly all these alleged deals and contacts use.

If you see this in ANY web address on the e-mail, it's spam. See multiple tell-tale signs, consider it trashed.

I'd also like to go ahead and point out that if Karatechick or whatever her name is, is my age as of right now, she'd be 50 by the time she sent me this e-mail. That's just weird. Alternatively, if she's my age in 2038, then I'll be 50 when she's 21. No matter how you slice it, it's just uncomfortable.
