Unfortunately we have not received one such email yet, if we are feeling lucky one day, we'd give them the following response:
Firstly, thank you for your unnecessary audit.
We highly appreciate your effort in copying and pasting the email from your template. As your template contained tons of grammer mistakes, we have no choice but to gather all our researchers in helping us to flip some words, twist some characters, and crunch some roaches that accidentally flew into our lab. Trust us, we have put in massive effort in trying to decipher the message that you encoded.
In any case, after 7x7=49 days of non-stop analysis, we are forced to put this to a halt due to insufficient investor fundings. Since your company and you are somehow related to HAITONG Investment company, we would like to seek your help in getting them to fund us, so that we can continue to analyze your email in greater detail. Without such funding we would not survive, and that will definitely cause some of our best researchers to lose their job and worse, the problem may futher deteriorate and turn into a hopeless society since there are now more jobless people on the street.
If you managed to persuade HAITONG Investment company in providing us the funding, please kindly contact us immediately, and we will definitely give you some rewards for your effort. If you've tried but fail to obtain the funding agreement, we'd suggest that you pass the case to your manager or someone who has the ability to do so. We will still reward you, but the incentive would definitely be lesser as compared.
Once the funding agreement is sealed, and now we are all in one big happy family, you may then proceed to help HAITONG Investment company in registering all the domain names that they requested, including but not limited to the followings: elohkcalb.cn, elohkcalb.com.cn, elohkcalb.asia, elhokcalb.hk. You might also want to recommend them to register elohkcalb.net, elohkcalb.org, elohkcalb.biz, elhokcalb.us with the rest of the 300+ ccTLDs for a greater future.
Last but not least, thank you very much for wasting your time reading this email.
Have a great day.
