How Not to Answer an Ad

So, I have ads in the local papers. I haven't had much response, but today I got this email out of the blue:

Date: Mon, 11 Jul 2005 12:20:53 -0500
From: Lisa B--

Please call 678-555-1234 my name is Lisa B--

Of course, I changed her name and took out her real number, but I'm sorry, but that doesn't intrigue me. No subject. No indication of why I should call. Just a phone number and some woman's name. For all I know, that number goes to Papua, New Guinea, so there is no way in hell I'm calling that.

As it turns out she was answering my ad.
