    Ha! Love it. We rarely get these, but yesterday, my boss printed off this very one and
    brought it to me. 'Would you look at this? It could be a scam, because of the language,
    but I don't know.' I assured her that it was, saying they're posted on the G fairly often
    and that I'd share this one. Nice confirmation here.

    I got one from Marcus Greg this morning. He promptly got transferred over to "spam".

    I, too, have gotten an exorbitant amount of spammers in the last several months. Some of the weasels are getting rather creative at their craft!

    I don't think I can respond because I don't stock much glass that is 1-1/2 wide. Most of mine is 2.5 mm wide. Am I missing something?

    nikfrz, as long as you're not busy making frames for Marcus, would
    you have time to whip up thirty five shinny gold ones for me?

    I was thinking the same thing. Sure could use the work but where canI get glass 1 1/2" thick? You think he wants bullet proof shadowboxes?

    He didn't say "thick". He said "wide". I know the guy - he lives in a very thin house in west London and needs art:

    But he needs skinny art in shinny frames.

    This was in my inbox this morning...

    Dear Manager,
    (If you are not the person who is in charge of this, please forward this to your CEO,Thanks)
    This email is from China domain name registration center, which mainly deal with the domain name registration and dispute internationally in China.
    We received an application from Huatong Ltd on December 12, 2013. They want to register " bluegrassframes " as their Internet Keyword and " bluegrassframes .cn "、" bluegrassframes .com.cn " 、" bluegrassframes .net.cn "、" bluegrassframes .org.cn " domain names etc.., they are in China domain names. But after checking it, we find "bluegrassframes " conflicts with your company. In order to deal with this matter better, so we send you email and confirm whether this company is your distributor or business partner in China or not?
    Best Regards,

    They are just trying to sell you a bunch of Chinese domains, most likely at a high price. They're trying to create urgency that someone is trying to buy your trade name in their country.

    That's what I figured.

    Can't imagine anyone in China would be interested in a name with "Bluegrass" in it. But then again, KFC is a very fast growing restaurant chain over there...
