Dear Ladies and Gents,
I write to you in concern. I recently received the following email with a promise of work only to discover it was a scam. I know you are all smart enough to avoid things that are too good to be true but it can't hurt to get his name out there, in the google sphere.
Thank you ABMP for posting an email from this online predator. He has moved on from Massage Therapists to yoga teachers but his message and format remains the same.

She will be needing 1hr Yoga session per day, 3 Sessions per week for 6 weeks. Ms Bregal, asked me to come with her to America but i told her i would not be able to go with her as i have a course i will be going for in a week time and also because i do not know much about Yoga, so i promised to help her get a good Yoga practitioner in your Area..
