If you want me to believe your offer is legitimate, try harder to convince me.
From: Anne (email@example.com)
Subject: Legit Business offer if interested
Pardon me if I invaded your privacy, I am Mrs. Anne Faye Sakura from Hong Kong. However I understand the insecure nature of soliciting for business on the internet, unfortunately I have no other option than to search for credible foreign collaboration to partner with me in the actualization of a viable and profitable business venture.
All arrangements will be made under a legitimate framework. Full details will be disclosed to you on your expression of interest, I look forward to doing good business with you.
Does this information make you want to know more about her offer? It makes me want to click delete as soon as I read it – if I get past the subject line. And we’re supposed to believe that she cannot find a business partner in Hong Kong? Whatever, Anne.
Be safe and smart, people.
