I know what you are thinking, yes it sounds dodgy, but no, Red hot pawn is a online chess playing site.
You can invite anyone that has an email account to play against you. Signing up takes less than a minute, not like most sites that want to know all your personal details including the colour of your toothbrush. This site is not blocked by most proxies. ;-)
You get notified per email every time you get invited or if it is your turn. You have 3 days to make a move, with a total time limit of 7 days.
It might not be as sexy as you initially thought when you read the name, but is fun and doesn't take up much time out of your day.
