e-mail scams

A couple of members have got in touch about email scams.

This one is from someone looking for private tuition for their mother. Members should be on their guard for these sort of emails.

Good afternoon,
How are you today, I found your advert during my search for a “Tai Chi” lesson teacher for my mother, who is coming to spend some month’s with her cousin in your area. Your advert looks great on the site, she will be coming to your city in a few weeks time.

I want her to come for your body fitness/therapy class to grow more physical strength. My mother is 47 yrs and she love (Tai Chi Chuan), she’s is just a beginner, please kindly teach her well. Let me know your charges cost per hour/lesson, in order for me to arrange for her booking before she travels down to your side. She will be staying for three months and I want her to learn for the period of her stay.

Let me know if there’s is any personal equipment like CD’s BOOK’S she may need privately at home.

Please Advise back on;
(1). Your charges for private classes per hour?
(2). Your available schedule time to teach her during the week?
(3). Tuition address?

I will be awaiting your swiftness response to my message.

Best regards
