Default Nice Try

Got this one today. They are getting smarter.
Hello


This is Dane Jenning and i will like to know if you sharpen saw in your shop ? And also can i speak with the owner or the manager ? Actually i just relocated from my old house in ( Illinois, United States ) down to your city 3 days ago, and i have 200 chainsaws that i want you to sharpen for me and i just moved in to your city now and i am at the hospital right now because i was down with a diagnosis of cancer of the lungs as such i had to spend some time in the intensive care basically. I have made an arrangement with a shipping company that will bring the chainsaws down to your shop for the sharpening and what are the costs for the sharpening ? Also let me the type of credit card you accept for the payment and i will also need your shop address so i can forward it to the shipping company that will deliver the chainsaws to your to your shop for the sharpening.

Similar to one that's been going around a while. Had two hits myself - told both of them to quit wasting their time and mine.

"Smarter"? a 4 year old could have put those words together better than that.

It's far less work and far quicker to just hit "delete."
