We get these scams every day but this one struck me as funny:
"Hello,
I am Dr.Jeff Adams. I want to book Lunch for 15 guests from my Department arriving to your country. We will all come for Lunch on November 4th, 5th and 6th by 2.00pm each day. Get back me with your Menu if there is availability so that I can get our sponsors to make a certified cheque or credit card payment for our Lunch.
Jeff Adams"
All the way to Pittsboro for Lunch!!!

First clue, they can't spell and their grammer is incorrect ... one would think that they would have come up with something new by now but I guess if ONE place / person falls for it then that's all they want ..... and I can't even feel sorry for anyone anymore that DOES fall for it because (1) it has been around for so long and (2) as my late father would say "if it sounds too good to be true it probably is" ....

They probably heard about your fabulous breakfasts and so figured lunch would be equally amazing.
