Do You Know This Boy?



I'm not usually one for forwarding those mails you get about Bill Gates needing to test his email system or the kid in the UK who needs postcards, but this one, forwarded by a friend, appears to be legitimate. The hospital exists, and so does the domain for the original sender (which I have modified slightly, but humans should be able to figure it out):

ORIGINAL MESSAGE
From: Laura Taylor-Vann [laura dot taylor-vann at sophtlogic dot com]
Sent: 04 January 2005 14:31
Subject: FW: PLEASE SEND THIS TO ALL YOU KNOW.

Nobody knows who this boy belongs to! Please send this to all - we mean all! - the people in your entire network. Looking for his family.
The boy is about 2 years old, from Khoa Lak and is missing his parents.
Nobody knows what country he comes from. If anybody knows him please contact us by phone 076-249400-4 ext. 1336, 1339 or e-mail : info@phuket-inter-hospital.co.th

Laura Taylor-Vann would do far better concentrating on her own step children who she has not seen for seven months because they were, apparently, inconvenient to her way of life.

And here was I thinking nobody read my blog, making that post a pointless gesture. Strange that one of my surely miniscule number of readers should know this Laura person... Unless somebody has been obsessively Googling.
