Bugsy Posted March 20, 2007 Share Posted March 20, 2007 Picture this. They are thinking of a holiday somewhere in Europe and send a mailshot to several different locations. Certain words are changed to reflect the location. The poor english could just be due to the fact that the sender is not english or has limited use of the language.example.Hi, My name is Alice Ford,I got your details from English tourism directory and would like to rent your accommodation. I will be going on my annual leave on the 14th of April and my husband & I will be coming to Winchester, Hampshire on holiday for 2 weeks. We would be staying from Sunday 15th of April 2007 to Saturday 28th of April 2007.I would greatly appreciate your thoughts and recommendation on a suitable accommodation if you have availability for 14 nights (2weeks) and the costs. Any discounts for long stay?I'm 37 years old and a senior accountant, working with UNESCO here in the United Kingdom. I look forward to hearing from you, many thanks. Alice Ford,42, Parkville Rd,London, SW6 7BXUnited Kingdom.Email:[email protected]That said, it could be a mass-mailshot as part of a scam, but don't scams seek to obtain money or goods from you fraudulently ? I can see no sign of that in this request for information. Or does that part come later? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
