What (or who) is Lady Reine?

I get a ton of spam that has "Lady Reine" in the subject line. I've googled the phrase, but can't find anything on it. It all seems a little odd to me.

I don't open them. It just seems curious that it is used on so much spam.

I'm personally a little curious about James Balduf. Poor bugger must've entered his email address wrong while signing up for a few hundred different newsletters and free offer notices. No viagra for him.

Anybody else see any repetitive names amongst their spam that don't make sense?

I get a lot of credit card and mortgage loan spam for someone named Maxie McGilberry! I used to get similar mail for someone whose name was Lonnie.

i got this today....a very different approach to spam than i've recieved so far:


[spam message]
Hello


I saw your ad on Webdate.com ,I liked what you said and it is different from other ones, so I thought I would write.
Being here is a new and interesting experience for me as I just moved near Sun City from Denver area about a month ago andI must say I really like it here.
I'd like to meet more people, I don't know anybody, except for my roomate who moved here a while back. She's made some friends through the internet and she says there's a lot of nice and interesting people I might find here.
I am new at this computer, pterry confusing, so we will see if it works! Well, a little about me, I am generally a happy and passionate person. I am a sweet, friendly, down to earth girl. I like to go out and party with friends or just stay home and watch sports with my man.
My roomate Christine thought I should email you and she showed me how to send it but nowI can't figure out how to attach my picture here. Christine attached my picture on selectyourfriendlymatch.com. You can locate my number 3042572. If you'll think you are interested, you can call me on my cell phone tomorrow at 65254825I'd like to try something different to meet new people now. My schedule can be hectic sometimes, but I will make room for someone special...actually I would go out of my way.
Any way we can talk and see what we have in common and possibly get together if it feels comfortable. Bye,
Janie

P.S.
I would love for you to contact me.
I don't know how long I can use this address till I get my connection so call me and let's see where it goes.
By the way, did you get my last email?

[/spam message]





i especially like how the phone number is missing two digits! and "she" likes to stay at home at watch sports with her man. haha. good trick.
