Hi,
I am possibly interested in moving into your spare bedroom. I have lived in NYC for about a year, I’m 24, work in consulting, originally from the Midwest, and love the outdoors. I attached a picture of me with a friend for you and if you have any more questions feel free to ask away. Thanks and I’ll talk to you soon.

Attached to the email was a guy with his arm around a girl who looked like she wanted to run the hell away. And fast. But his email was harmless enough, so I sent him the hoax email. Here was his response:

Finy,

So it appears as if we were both a bit deceiving, because to be honest I didn’t really intend to ever go through with it…I was just so intrigued by the post that I had to respond just to see if it was for real. My roommate and I are looking for a new place and we just stumbled across it, and basically flipped a coin to decide who would inquire about it.

In all honesty though, about a year ago when I was first moving here I probably would have considered it because I didn’t know anyone and I didn’t have much money. If you’d like me to participate in your survey I’d be glad to (assuming I remain anonymous).

So I guess we’re kind of even now ha ha, but good luck and let me know if you still want me to answer your questions. It will give me something to do at work!

Well, whether he was joking with his response or not I guess we’ll never know. He never responded to my follow up email.
