Has anyone in France received this one? The more I look at it, the more I'm convinced it's a scam (dodgy French, her name as the recipient list and seemingly flexible on dates)... it's just that we do often get requests for 3 weeks due to there being a thermal baths nearby that has a 3 week treatment programme. Genuine 'curistes' tend to mention this and aren't flexible on dates though.

Thoughts anyone?


Bonjour Mr / Mme

Pourrais - Je avoir sur une durée de 14 ou 21 nuitées de votre location chambres d’hôtes pour deux personnes pour la période du
04/05/2019 au 25/05/2019. Cette période est elle disponible ?
- Si oui quel est le devis total de ma location.
- Si non faites moi part de vos disponibilités à venir SVP .
Dans l'attente de vous lire.
Cordialement
Mr et Mme BOUGEROLLE

Whoever wrote that is not French. Did you look at where the IP address came from? At a guess, West Africa.

"Mr / Mme" ? I don't think so!

I don't seem to be able to look at the IP address with our email set up but you're probably right, Oasiscouple... it's probably African.

Martha... yes, I noticed the 'Mr', however very occasionally we do get a genuine enquiry with this in place of the usual 'M' so that alone didn't ring alarm bells. Coupled with the rest though, it smells fishy...!

Thanks!
