You sure its not just a typo error and they meant May. I always answer what I consider to be a scam, as in my experience, if it is you never hear from them again.

No thats not a mistake/typo as they confirm the number of days at 36.

This has come in as a straight email and BCC, so clearly sent to many others and I am always very suspicious of this type off enquiry.

And the fact I have 4 properties in 3 totally different locations!

Exclamation

Who sends bulk enquiries with BCC other than scammers ?
