[color= Navy]~ Howdy ATS [color= Navy] ~

So, Today I would like to share with you to an e-mail that I had received on February 21st 2013 that I have just now recently noticed since I haven't been checking my e-mail often lately.

The e-mail I received contained the following: No Subject, No Sender, No Topic and No Body Text
In other words I got a blank email from nobody that said nothing with no way to reply to a nonexistent sender

But of course, as usual, I did some digging around, I just couldn't resist.

So, to get right to it without any more explanation, it I'm just going just lay it all out for you. I gathered all this information myself manually.

Edward Aldridge is the name registered to the server that sent the e-mail to me

Edward Aldridge also appears to use the username "texasjam" often

I Google searched the name Edward Aldridge and this is what popped up

Wikipedia Edward C Aldridge Jr
the guy is 74 years old

CONSPIRACY SPECULATION INPUT: could this important government figure reflect the guy who sent me the e-mail, either directly or non-directly maybe as some sort of hidden/subtle message....or do you think it's probably totally unrelated and there's no connection to be seen here. Let's discuss.

But let's move on first there's a lot more to cover yet ;-p

There are 5 different Domains registered under same IP address of the e-mail sender's IP

So, in other words, the person who sent me the e-mail owns all of these websites below as well

Foundation Republic Site for cloud grid based services

American Academy For Security Training Website that's all about weapon/combat/defense training/preparedness for Americans

About them

So anyways, the next website this person owns is

Team Smack Forum Forum for Bicycle Cyclists. It appears to have main focus for an outlet for crap talking amongst the cyclists and/or about other cyclists (so it's context is aggressive; dog-eat-dog and competitive pretty much) -- Interesting.

Ella Paint and Body Automobile Service Website

Tony Taylor Apparently a page for a music band. Note what is said on the home page. (creepy?)

and then I found this one I found too...

Red Springs Ranch Website about a cow and livestock farm. Oh great, so this guy is also involved with CATTLE and a livestock farm too. (Cattle mutilations anyone? ie: unexplained cattle mutilations) (How about...are you worried about who's behind your food supply?) No?


Below is the purported contact info for the Foundation Republic domain (The main domain that seems to be the base domain that all those other websites branch off from,the domain owner's contact info for all domains appears to be constant (Although I remember seeing something about Chicago somewhere regarding contact Info... somewhere, but I'm afraid I lost the link of where I found it.)

Fax: +1.5555555555
16631 Ben Nevis Dr
Houston, S 77084

Administrative Contact: RunClear Systems Aldridge (

^^ I decided to run a search on this too ^^



And soooo to end off with the remaining material, I gathered up some of my own personal screen shots to help give you a better visual picture of EVERYTHING brought forth in the thread (blacked out areas done for personal privacy reasons)

Message(s) shown in "Important Inbox"

Message shown right after I click on it in the inbox

Message shown after I opened E-mail to read the message (of course there was none)

the yellow flag thing just says what "G-Mail" has concluded to THINK about the message and why. They apparently think a blank e-mail is pretty damn important stuff and appear to even be opinionated as to why. :rollseyes:

So, that's about all I got for ya at the moment. I know I've said this in other threads, but I know I'm going to have to repeat it -- I am in no way CLAIMING to KNOW anything for sure in this thread regarding opinions about what it may or may not be about, if anything at all, and I have not come to a conclusion. I am also not claiming any beliefs at this time.

I think the connections are very interesting, whether they mean anything or not is up for you to try to decide with me. I would like this to be a civil discussion if you will please and not a blasphemous mess of accusations and finger pointing.


Well okay, then it's settled (!)

Have you tried highlighting the body of the e-mail to see if there is hidden text? Once I received an e-mail that was blank and on a hunch I highlighted it. It turned out to be from my brother-inlaw who thought he was being funny- haha (uttered sarcastically).

Is there any information in the header of the email? Also, is there text entered into the body but in the same color as the actual background? I used to use that tactic for my resume for search engines....write resume in word and add every key word I could think of at the bottom of it in the smallest font and in white so when my resume popped up in a recruiters search, it may have nothing to do with anything I actually had experience in but it allowed me to come up in a lot more searches than others.

Why on earth would you open an e-mail when you don't know who it is from?? Surest way to pick up a nasty virus known. Unless you know this person, chalk it up like a wrong number, do not take it personal and move on. You got lucky this time. Next time maybe not. I can understand being curious, but not about something coming from the internet like this.

Thanks for catching that! I caught it right before you said it.
The screen shot of that too is now added.

MMmm, no.. unfortunately there's no hidden text to highlight.

I think the Google results are pretty useless, perhaps with the second link as an exception. The other two on top arewwhat Google came up with after changing the last name. The bold words are what Google thinks were relevant to your search and beyond "system" etc theres not much of value there...

Dont know what to make of this, might as well be a mistake from someone on who's mailing list you are? Or just a random mistake? Do you have a common email address where a digit, name,... Could've caused a mistake perhaps?

Yahoo email addresses have had a nasty virus that makes the rounds. I own several active email lists..not ATS related. The virus will invade the users address book, then send out a mass email to everyone in it. Sometimes they are blank emails. When one hits one of my lists, I contact the list member it was sent from and ask them to virus sweep/clean their computers.

You may want to clean your computer as a precautionary measure...

Good idea Des! My girls both have old yahoo e-mail accounts that they seldom use anymore and both of those old accounts sent out spam to everyone in their address books two weeks ago (not blank, but spam nonetheless). As often as something like that happens I've learned to never open e-mail from either of those accounts unless I call them and ask if they sent me something from them first.

Most of the time, the virus mass emails p 0 rn links...nothing but the link in it...

Oh wow, so I put all that time into this thread for no one to really "LOOK" at it.

Oh hey it's just another garbage e-mail why do we care - moving on.

Did any of you even read it or just skim to a conclusion.

Don't take it personally

I can see where people are coming from. Junk emails are so common today that they are hardly worth a second glance - just "delete".

Where I work, one of the things I manage is our email system. Spam is a constant battle, let alone protecting us from the viruses. We stop what we can with the best tools we can afford, and still things slip through, so educating people about what to do if they get unwanted mail is something we take seriously - and the main instruction is - if you don't know who it is from and are not expecting it - delete it. When you deal with 10's of thousands of spams every day (most of which are successfully blocked), it really becomes not worth the energy to put a great deal of time into researching one weird email. If we researched every one, we would get nothing else done

I've had this e-mail addrees for MANY years and have not recieved an e-mail like this in my "important" inbox ever

I'm not new to the internet either :rollseyes: I know all about porn and junk e-mails...

It's just kind of strange; this particular e-mail because of the digging I did on it --- CONSIDERING the fact that, although I didn't mention it, I've had asked a few times in the past, through various outlets, for someone to contact me anonymously with information about they grey things in this world.

I am not saying this e-mail is THAT, but it's a strange coincidence that I receive it now, and why now, and why does the person who sent it run all those pages too? Who is this person?

I want to acknowledge that I now see that I got carried away with my viewpoints in this thread as to what I thought about my e-mail at the time and how far I took it.

....It was just an unimportant e-mail I get it

What happened was I guess I just really wanted the mail to mean something at the time because I really wanted information about some things, I thought maybe someone out there in the world actually heard me and was actually responding. My views became skewed.

Speaking of unknown e mails... I just found yours.
I am out here in the world and actually heard you and am actually responding, be it 2 months later.

As you can see, I have figured out who you are, but I have no idea in what thread you found me or what it is you wanted to talk about.

There are 3 similarities.

1 The first two nights in my condo:
“an old ashtray literally fly off from the side of my tv”

2 The thing in the closet:
“I KNEW it was, because I could feel it inside my head… Like overwhelming intelligence. Like it KNEW ME and was looking into my soul”

3 UFO sighting.

The thing is, I do not think I have ever mentioned the first 2 on ATS.
