Be careful of this email if you get it.
It appears to be a scam.

Good Day, Am William, i would like to know if you do Home inspection service and do you accept credit card for the payment ?

I just bought a new home in the city and i would like you to do the job on home inspection service and i would like you handle the job for me because am presently in the hospital due to my diagnosis of Bladder Cancer and am still in the Private medical center and i would like you to do a perfect work for me

I advised him if this was not real I would post it to the forum to warn other inspectors.

All the best,

Old news…but thanks anyway

Yea, this scam (or similar) has been going on for years. But I know there are always new inspectors coming on board so it is good that it is brought up every so often.
