I wonder is this is another scam (note they use free gmail) where maybe they make the person pay some kind of advanced fee, or if they really do want their English to be corrected. Hmmm, I wonder if they thought about correcting this e-mail before it went out...

Well now....don't that look just like "fun"???

I had to run it through my English translator so I could figure out what they were saying. :)

Well, perhaps it's for people here to date people in China, Russia, or maybe . . Nigeria?

Joe,
By the way, they will need your checking account information in order to direct deposit your earnings and they will need your Social Security number for income tax purposes.
Sounds like a great Nigerian employer to me, where can I sign up? :D

Good One Joe,
I wanted to touch upon this, but I could not find my ten foot pole!
It just never ends on the net...
Congratulations on your prestigious offer!
Colourful stuff,
thanks for the chuckle,

The scam's I've been hearing about recently are the ones where they claim to either know something about you that they will release unless you pay them, or the one where they say that they have been hired for $10,000 to kill you, but if you give them $20,000 they won't do it.

A local lady fell for the 2nd one recently.

Wow Joe! So, when are you giving up your day job? Better hurry, this offer won't last. Funny, I don't see where they offered you a free set of steak knives if you call now.

I'd fix up the mistakes and send it back with an invoice attached for $140.00 for services rendered, as when you save their email in Word it is a 20 KB file. My guess is you will never hear from them.

I know very few businesses that operate with a gmail account. I know even fewer the cold call people asking people if they want to work for them.

Too funny! Don't be tempted to respond at all. Doing so will confirm your email address is valid and that someone reads it. This will open the door to even more scams and spam.
