Subject: Fwd: Replica Request for Museum

Greetings. I am opening a new aviation museum in my country called
Bucharest Aerospace Museum (google it). The museum is entirely
I was wondering if you want to be added on the sponsors list below.


Can you make/build for me an aircraft replica or mockup as
donation to put it up on display ?
Thank you.

We might want to be cautious about this. The Bucharest Aviation Museum, much like the city of Bucharest itself, is in Romania. In fact, it is the capital of Romania. It is not in Hungary. I suppose it is possible that this person is confused about the name of his own country or where he lives. There is a Budapest Aviation Museum, but the name Madalin Marian appears on the Bucharest Aviation Museum website. HMMMMM. Snarky! Personally, I would not suggest sending any money until this is clarified! 

PS. 40 is the phone code for Romania.

PPS. Other possible explanation is that he did not specify a country-only a city- and Dennis confused Bucharest with Budapest and inserted the country name himself in error. Not hard to do.
