Just wondering if anyone else has been receiving these inquiries. Over the past few years I am getting emails (at least 7-8) that start off asking if I provide Architectural Drawings for residential plans. I let them know that I am a draftsperson and give them information regarding my services. Here are the last 2 examples. I have pretty much just blown them off because I think it is a scam situation that is somehow trying to get my personal information and perhaps access to my financial information. They all seem to word it about the same. What are your thoughts?? Anyone else having similar experiences.
I am Fred .. Do you do Architectural Drawing and Designing for proposed new building also do you accept credit card for the payment?
I reply that I am a drafts person and draw plans in so many words.
Okay I want it to be to two Story, My budget is $2,000,000. i wish to start June and spend 12-14 months 6000 sqft lot size. Six Bedroom, with 2 living rooms per suite, 2 living rooms in total. Foyer, Master suite, playroom, kitchen, kitchenette (small cooking area), laundry room and Garage. With access to the Living space from Garage (possibly a mudroom entry) Master bedroom can easily be connected to a mudroom as well so as my bungalow plan would you put 3-4 Bedrooms downstairs and 2 Bedrooms up.
2nd email I received today from someone else. This one gave an actual address. You can tell that English doesn't seem to be his native language. Not that that is a problem as a number of my clients are from other countries and have difficulty expressing themselves in English. We work it out with pictures and and they bring family members that speak English most times. But when it is put together with multiple fishy emails, it gets my radar up.
