Time Travel Spam

I've gotten the message below a couple of times, so I guess the guy is
sending it pretty widely. It's funny and sad at the same time, if he
is actually serious. He obviously has some serious mental problems.
Still I supposed it is not that much more outlandish than the guy who
thought ET might be on the internet.

Anyway it's nice of him to pay for our teleport to visit him, along with
the hotel stay. Of course anyone who could do what he asked would have
no difficulty acquiring all the money he wanted.
