A little perspective: editing

One of the biggest complaints about indie publishing is the quality of the editing and I won’t argue against getting a professional to check your work, but sometimes a little perspective also goes a long way.  (Bear with me on this.)

We’ve all had a scam e-mail at some point right?  You’ve won a lottery you didn’t enter; a bank account you don’t own has been hacked; a stranger wants you to help them smuggle ‘millions’ for a cut of the profit… and the list goes on.

So, I wasn’t massively surprised when I received the email shown below.  What was more shocking was how little effort they apparently put into the scam.  Most of the errors could have been picked out by a simple spell-check!

There’s at least 8 errors here, how many can you spot?
