I got interest!
 
Man you better send this Wanita every piece of personal information you have. She seems too special to just dismiss.
 
Gotta have those potentials.

It's obviously not from Giant Bomb.  I've heard that sometimes spam systems or whatever can create fake emails to send to you from emails in your contact list, so it's probably something like that. 
 
[EDIT] Oh wait, the site's address is only in the content of the actual email?  Weird.

They're trying to get you to subscribe by hiring bots.

This is good news.  GB must be getting popular if they are harvesting user info from it.  Usually the russian chicks mention their facebook profile.

It was I, the Saucer Copper, who committed this ingenious act of jokeness *muahahahahhahaha*
 
Anyway, it is truly odd.

That's real, everything on the internet is 100% true. Now I'm gonna go watch Bang Bus. I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY GET CHICKS LIKE THAT AND THEN LEAVE THEM!

Russian brides sure are getting desperate if they're scanning video game websites in the hopes of a Green Card and some money for marrying them, Lol.
