This is over a year old – pre-Obama – but somehow I missed it till now:
Dear Thoxan, I would like to express an interest in working for you as your German>English translation agency. I am a lifelong speaker of American English, but have also done extensive translation work into British English. I was an honor student in college and have a Bachelor’s Degree and a Master’s Degree in German. I also spent a year in college as an exchange student in Giessen, Germany.
This unsolicited advertising email was sent twice, and the sender became abusive after a response to the second sending.
