Possible P5 Activity

This morning the Lost Island DX Society email box contained the following gem. We're warming up the amp in anticipation:

Subject: P5 DXpedition
From: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
To: biggundx@gmail.com

Dear Friend,
I hope this email finds you well. I got your address from a close friend who assured me that you are a good and trustworthy person and a serious DXer. With the recent death of Beloved Leader Kim Jon Il, there is a unique window of opportunity to activate the top Most Needed DX Entity, P5. As the country transitions power from Kim Jon Il to its next leader, the state of uncertainty that exists makes it possible to obtain the cooperation of certain officials that will allow an amateur radio operation from P5. This is an unprecedented opportunity to hand out QSOs to The Deserving worldwide, of whom, of course,you are one.
Needless to say, the cooperation of certain officials and the logistics involved in a DXpedition of this nature does not come cheap. Time for organizing this operation is short as the window of opportunity is small, so we are urgently reaching out to Top Gun DXers to ask for assistance to help pull off this unique operation. For generous contributors, we will make special accommodations to insure you will make it into the log and you will receive priority service in QSL processing. Special times and publicly undisclosed frequencies will be arranged to insure you get the needed QSO.  Generous contributors will be those contributing $1000 or more. Our QSO scheduling will begin with the most generous contributors and continue down the list, assuming the window of opportunity for this operation doesn’t close too quickly.
If you wish to be included among the generous sponsors of this historic DXpedition and insure your needed QSOs with P5, please respond with your name and bank account information so that we may facilitate your contribution. We must act quickly to avoid missing this unique window of opportunity.
