Short and to the point
As you well know, I'm always on the look-out for a new business opportunity, so I was delighted to find the following missive in my inbox:
Dear S/M How did you know? And how is it any of your business what I do in the privacy of my own home?
Mr.John Peckin is my name,i want to purchase an order with you. I'm fresh out of orders but I guess for you I could run out and pick some up. BTW, "Mr. John Peckin is my Name," sounds like a great, old-school western and/or Johnny Cash song. I will like to know if you do sell (Drag bit). Erm, I don't know what that is, but I imagine it's some sort of drill thingy. And, no, I don't sell those. I keep them all to myself. But could I interest you in a box of unmatched socks? If yes you have it in stock, e-mail me with the price list of this product. As a rule, I charge $12,000 just to email the price list for any product. So, you go ahead and send the money and I'll see what I can do. Actually i got access to your contact through a search engine... That's why i decided to contact if you can be of any assistance.... Thanks for that explanation, because I was kinda wondering why you'd chosen to contact me. Please don't ever write to me again.
Much regards. John Peckin
