I just received the following in my personal in-box. Quite incredible, who would believe it, eh? I’m sorely tempted, I am, honest gov… Below is the email I received, and my thoughts as I read each bit.
"Hello, please can I have your attention for a moment?"
ML – you’ve got it!
"Would you like to work online from home/temporarily and get paid weekly?"
ML – never really thought of it before but what you offering?
"Well, I just came across your name and address posted online and I would be very interested in offering you a part-time paying job in which you could earn a lot."
ML – wow, I’ve never actually put my name and address anywhere online, so that’s a really incredible coincidence you managed to find it – I presume you didnt email me by name as we don’t know each other yet so its too forward. Either way I’m so flattered you feel I’m qualified to work for you even though you’ve only seen my name and address. It’s as if fortune is shining at me from the stars today.
"This job would be based on contract and commission terms, it is a part-time job and it would involve quite a handful of trust and honesty."
ML – this is just amazing. Contract and commission – jiminy cricket, it’s a two for the price of one job offer. And it needs trust and honesty – it’s like it was made for me.
"If you would be interested in including a good-paying, part time job to your daily list of activities, then you could kindly reply firstname.lastname@example.org and I would be glad to brief you more."
ML – well, I am quite busy at the moment, but hey, what’s one more thing on my daily list? Mr Androses, I’m so lucky and really excited about your briefing. I’m also glad to see you’re using a generic email rather one for your company – wouldn’t want you giving too much away at this point, that’d only ruin my surprise when you do tell me later.
ML – hold on Frank, who’s the John who you told me to email? I must admit this was all reading so well but now I’m starting to get a touch suspicious…
