The below was sent to me at my chiropractic office. They got me on every level, even my vanity to treat a model visiting from Italy. Obviously at the end when they ask about charges because they want to pay in advance is the give away, but before that they even almost had me. Read the email and see if you can see what tipped me off before the finance part. My answer of what it was below in red. Clue, the incongruity between the job they said they had, and what they said about me. See if you can spot it.
“Greetings from Sydney!!
My name is Roberto Biancini I live and work as a massage therapist here in Sydney, I am originally from italy, I am 45yrs old. I have been doing massage since 1991. I do deep relaxation massage in which the muscles relax without pain. I also do energy massage that helps people feel great when I am done. I am also certified to do pregnancy massage. I have lots of happy clients here in Sydney.
I have been looking for a Chiropractor for over a week now till i met an old friend yesterday that referred you to me, so i decided to contact you to know if you will be able give my client some Chiropractic sessions.. My client’s name is Ms Christine Serhan, A model here in Italy who has been having episodes of low back pain and has lasted for a week now…She will be coming to the U.S in 3 weeks time for a modeling job and will be residing in your Area temporarily until the necessary arrangement for her job has been made before she leaves.
She will be needing 1hr Chiropractic session per day, 2 Sessions per week for 6 weeks. Ms Serhan, asked me to come with her to America but i told her i would not be able to go with her as i have a course i will be going for in a week time and also because i do not know much about Chiropractic sessions, so i promised to help her get a good Chiropractor in your Area.
Pls tell me a little more about your self, how long have you been a Chiropractor? Would you be able to provide her with the sessions from the 10th of next Month to the 25th of October, 2 Sessions per week for 6 weeks. I need you to get back to me with the amount you charge per session and also let me know if she can pay you with a Certified check drawn from a US bank?

The tip off?
1 HR Chiropractic sessions. Chiropractors don’t bill in sessions, they bill in visits. Of course the “Till I read from you remain blessed” is classic Nigerian style.
Time to go back to the next installment of the info product, “Rip off Americans by studying their professions and vernacular advanced”. Can you imagine the emails they send out to their list? LOL
