Don't trust people lacking basic spelling and grammar skills whom you've never met that tell you an obviously criminal conspiracy is "risk free."
For fun and geek points, use ARIN to check the originating IP address of suspect e-mails. This appears in the "internet headers" that Microsoft Outlook doesn't display unless you push the right buttons.Besides, given Custer Battle's reputation it is doubtful they would need any help on something like this...
It won't necessarily tell you who actually composed the e-mail, as spammers sometimes write viruses letting them send stuff from unguarded victims' computers. It will tell you where the e-mail DIDN'T come from in the case of phishers, etc.
