Spoof or real interest?

Greetings to you,
I am Terry Donald from scotland. I saw your car you have for sale and am interested in buying it for my mother,I will want you to state the lowest price you can sell the car to me and also get back to me with the recent pictures of the car. I will also like to know the owner of the car and the contact address of the owner.

Get back to me as soon as you recieve my mail,so i can contact you asap for nessesary arrangement.

I await your prompt response.

Kind Regards

Terry Donald

I'm leaning towards the former myself. I do wish that internet frauds would learn how to write properly before they start polluting teh intarwub with their mental diarhhoea.

Even in the unlikely case that it is genuine, I think you should still decline on the grounds of that bad grammar and spelling.

I am going to vote spoof on this one and chalk it up to the unfortunate truth that there are a lot of scammers out there.

I quite agree, Vincent. There's no way I could sell my car to just any old illiterate oik.

That's a nice selling site you've got going, Miss Mota Mouth. A pity I'm in the UK.

And you're right, HW. The Batmobile's not a mummy's car.

Thanks but I think that it is a shame that I am not in Wales! I used to live near Llangynog and miss it terribly.
