    Archery related email scam

    I have received two of these in the last two days, check it out and beware.


    Hello
    *
    I want to secure your professional services in giving both my beloved Kids, Tom and Linda some Archery training lessons .they are* 17* and 15 yrs old respectively .
    *
    They are billed for a trip to USA with my wife* on a 2 months vacation starting from the 1st week of Nov ,2012 .So they will need your assistance during their stay for some training instructions.
    *
    Having sought to contract your service as regard the training exercise, I want to get the schedule pre-arranged prior to their arrival. Also, do let me know if your services will be available? I implore you to make available, a brake down of your training schedule and your payment terms.
    *
    Looking forward to reading from you in earnest.
    *
    Regards
    *

    I believe that I recieved the same thing twice today. My spam filter caught it and I did not open it but it was from a Robert Bryan asking for archery training. I deleted both emails without opening them.

    to me, it doesnt phase me if a person has 2 first names. how many rednecks do you know that only have one first name?

    what raises my BS flag real quick is the use of the english language and the grammar. they dont even talk like that with proper english, let alone old world english.

    in the one line, it's a tone of angry desperation. 'brake' is the incorrect usage, the correct word is 'break'. funny how those synonyms work, huh?

    payment terms....that's a good one. i would have said CASH in advance at a ridiculous amount for lessons.

    It's not that I'm cranky, I just dont care what you think.
    Google isnt all that difficult to use, i'm not gonna spoon feed you info that you're too lazy to look up.

    well obviously it's bogus, but they're not asking for money.

    They will. The same thing came to a co-worker of mine, regarding guitar lessons. Exact same format. He replied and some sort of nonsense about a bogus money order and overpayment, refunds or something. Same as the scam where they offer to buy your car and offer an overpayment to pay the "transportation company" or some awful crap like that. Then the check or money order turns out to be bogus and you're left holding the bag, without your time or money.
    If it's got moving parts, I'm interested.
    Current gear:
    Mathews Monster XLR8 70lbs.
    High Country Archery X-Treme 70lbs.
    Bowtech RPM360 72lbs. "birth" weight. Currently just below that.
