Hi everybody,
here is a funny email I have just received, and below is my answer:

Good day,

i have a job for you, i will like to know if you are available or
Please get back to me if you are interested
Please keep in touch


Dear myofficecontactt@gmail.com,
Thank you for your email.
I am really grateful you have contacted me and at the moment I am available since no agency is contacting me since october and I really want to make some fresh money to buy a brand new t-shirt for the next summer.
My rate is 0,02 € per source word and I am willing to perform a free test of maximum 1.000 words (for more free words we can arrange).
Please let me know as soon as you can because I am really looking forward to working with your interesting and well-known agency.
Thanks again for having contacted me.
Yours sincerely,
