Wrong guy, folks

POSTED: October 27, 2012 10:36 a.m.

I've been accused on occasion of impersonating a reporter, but I've never been mistaken for a high-speed chicken farmer until now.

Check out this email I found in my inbox this morning. It came complete with photos of various pieces of what I take to be high-speed chicken farming equipment.

That leads me to think these folks are sincere -- i.e., this isn't some scam like the ones from Nigeria where someone asks you to send them money so they can give you your share of millions of dollars left in a deposit box by an overthrown dictator somewhere. Of course, this could also be a scam, but if so it seems kind of an odd way to go about it. After all, how many folks do you know who will jump at the chance to start up a "great-scaled biological raising farm ..."  

Anyway, here's the text of the email. If you know anyone in need of such equipment, they may want to check these folks out. They seem awfully polite.

"Dear Sir or Madam,
