I just wanted to share a story with you guys, I've posted my availability to teach piano lessons for beginners on Kijiji and had details such as how much my rates were and where to contact me if parents were interested in my teaching them. So I received a text from this person which said (i'm not going to include his full email):

I'm contacting you based on your post on Kijiji. I am in need of a Music Lesson for my daughter. kindly reply me back (frank******** and let me know if you can be a good lesson for $40/hr. Thanks & God bless.

When i got this text, I was quite confused to why they texted me telling them to email them. But I ended up contacting them by email and got this email back:

bec Obviously, it is someone from a different culture. I would just reply that you only teach 1 hour a week, or whatever your procedures normally are. It is pretty weird and a little spooky though. you could just reply that you won't be able to do this.

Lis It's probably too late for my response, but I would not respond AT ALL to the email. It is very fishy to me. They probably saw your post and now they are trying to get more info from you. The money is a way to entice you to respond. I hope you have not! You cannot be too careful these days.
