Anonymous Ungrammatical Pitches

Some guy just sent me a pitch that starts "Dear Lister".
Dear Lister,

We are an HR consultancy company here in OMAN. Currently, am looking a consultancy company there in Philippines to help us work on the project for our client, an oil and gas exploration, production and crude oil marketing activities here in Muscat, Oman which employs more than 90 staff directly and indirectly. This includes more than 50 graduate professionals, where most of them have not less than 7 years of experience.

The scope of the project will be as follow:
-Performance Management System
-HR Policy
-Employment Contract

Our projected timeline for this is 1 1/2 months. Pls send me your proposals and company profile on or before Friday 17th of March 2006 so we can prepare the invitation visa for your consultants.

Freelance HR Consultants will also be entertained. Send your resume for our reference on or before Friday 17th of March 2006 so we can prepare the invitation visa

Feel free to email or call me if you have any question. Thanks and have a nice day!

Grammar aside guys, if you're gonna pitch me, don't call me a "lister". And at least know something about me: besides this essay I once quoted as a COO facing HR challenges, what on Earth makes this guy think I know anything about HR?
