Red Flags

Received invitation on connect on LinkedIn

Jacky: Hi thanks for connecting, how can I help?

Guy: Would like to invest in our magazine?

Jacky: Hi Guy, what magazine is it and do you have a deck? 

Guy: Its a lifestyle and automobile magazine. We need money to take it to a international level. I didn’t get what deck means?

Red flags: Grammar errors, one line replies, no idea what a deck is. This is wrong in so many different levels. Would like to invest in our magazine? Is that how you email your potential investors? 

Not sure why did he added me in the first place since I’m not even an investor.

One of the many guys (i presume) to add everyone they see and mass spam them with requests for money, looking for sugar daddy.
