These continue to arrive in my mailbox. If you are a teacher of some sort they may arrive in yours as well. They are scams. Don’t bother responding — you only let them know they’ve reached a legit email address when you do so. Don’t fall for them — you’ll lose money if you do. Yes, people have fallen for them. Someone told me she lost a couple hundred dollars. I’m guessing some have lost more.

Hello,

I’m Mrs Debbie Mann from Paris,France.during my search for a
Oboe lesson teacher that would always take my son ( Chris is very
good speak English ) and I found you..Your advert looks great and it
is very okay to me since you specialize in the area i am seeking for
him… My Son would be coming to US (your city) by next week for a
period of time and with his friend for 2 Months.he is just a beginner
and he is 16 years old, i want you to help me teach lesson during his
stay. So, kindly let me know your charges cost per week’s ,in order
for me to arrange for his payment before he travels down to your side.
I have also made preparation for his personal equipment he will be
using privately at home after the lesson during his stay.

Please Advise back on;

(1). your charges per 1 hour twice a week for 2 Months?

(2).The Day and time you will be available to teach him During the week?

(3).Tuition address?

I will be looking forward to read from you soonest.

Best Regards,

Mrs Debbie Mann

How does it work? “Mrs. Debbie Mann” (hah!) sends you a check for much more than you asked. She then asks you to send the overage back to her. Only later do you find out the check she sent was bogus.
