Yeah, right-o buckaroo.
I’ll not take another breath until I click that link.
If that e-mail I was just blessed with doesn’t show how transparent someone is trying to copy another, I don’t know what is.
Even if you remove the major bumble of “Costumer,” fix the punctuation spacing issue, and lift up capitalization smudge there…
It still would sound like an imitation PayPal e-mail.
This person is trying to be someone they’re not.
And, it sticks out like a Greek monk in a mosh pit.
I always say, it’s a danged good thing these scam artists don’t know any gooder English, right?
If they did, they might actually hook a few.

English language for one, but PayPal’s language for another.
Same goes for us and our tunes.
You’ve got to be original, can’t fake being someone else…
Can’t write like someone else if it’s not you. People will see right through it. No substitution for authenticity.
And August’s Tune Booster helps you write like you.
I even show you how to easily take someone else’s stuff and make it your own if you find a cool phrase turned in your midst. Won’t look like anything it was.
