Bizarre email via indie hackers - quite funny really

Mick @Primer

I got this email today

I have got a strategy that I can give to you and you can raise $70,000 for 7% of your company equity .

I will charge you British pound of GBP 1,000 to teach you that strategy .

I know that you make about $320 per month,
with $320 per month, the company will take about 218 months which is equivalent to 18 years to reach a revenue of $70,000 .

Therefore I would like you to consider raising $70,000 for just 7% of your company, also you can raise that 7% for $70,000 on your own terms.

Therefore I am asking you to consider paying me GBP 1,000 so that I can teach you the strategy which somebody used to raise $70,000 .

Thanks and I will be waiting for your reply soon.

I replied

lol

He replied

I will take it as a YES,
therefore send 1,000 GBP in Ether
GBP 1,000 is equivalent to 3.53 Ether

therefore send 3.53 Ether to this ether address: 0x6Ff0a0f41703cb5d7bbb095118A1f98b2388c649

Thanks and I will be waiting for your reply soon.

      I can filter comments like this one for $20 USD

      I know you make $320 per month, so that's equivalent to 48 h to reach $20.

      see what people do with collected data ;)
      If that data is cheap, it's worth it ^^

        hahaha "collected" you are so kind. My next "product" was going to be stripe-verified revenues, guess I'm late.

    To get another entertaining email, just reply with:

    "You've already done the math, so I'll just level with you.

    Even if I set aside a QUARTER of my $320 / month towards buying your services, it's going to take over a year before I can afford them. Let's keep in touch and hope that eth prices don't go up!"
