Many websites show different text depending on where the user lives. For instance, home pages of some portals show you the news and weather of your region by default, because you are most likely to be interested in this kind of information first of all.

However, we are pretty sure the creators of the pyramid scheme are also sending out letters in other languages to attract attention to their website.
