This is so funny. 

I wonder if the money for the property is in a tin can wrapped in a blanket and burried in a secret location near one of the lakes??

JailIf you have ever read my blog articles you know that I am proud of the fact that both my Massachusetts Real Estate website and blog can be found in most local Real Estate searches. Some of the content I provide my readers is also much more broad in nature and will also be found for more national related topics like Real Estate capital gains for example.

When we create content online sometimes the places people find you can be VERY far reaching. What has to be the most bizarre piece of mail I have ever received arrived today in my work mail box!

The letter came from a jail in Kentucky and was clearly marked so on the front of the envelope with "Inmate mail not responsible for the content". I have provided the letter below for your enjoyment with the gentleman's name crossed out. 

Apparently I am this inmates Realtor of choice for finding a nice piece of land up in Maine! I know my Real Estate friends up in Maine are probably salivating over the chance to land this referral since I am not licensed in Maine - LOL

Prison letter



























Just to be clear the gentleman did not indicate when he will be out of the slammer. Because of my generous nature I am willing to pass this on to any Maine Realtor for a very low referral fee of only 5% - LOL

Of course I am going to request that you bring mace, Ginsu knives, and take a few lessons in karate. After all I will be expecting to be paid and that will not happen if you don't make it out of the woods alive:)

WOW!!! Now there is a good prospect!  That's really something. I wonder about qualifying him for a loan.  That should raise some eyebrows.

This is a good re-blog. Hey, even an ex-convict needs a home to live in once he's out. I definitely think his reaching out to our buddy, Bill - was perfect.

Lenn I have the letter pinned up on my wall in the office. This certainly takes the prize for the strangest letter I have ever received. I like the part about mineral rights:)

I'm glad I'm not on Bill's hit referral list for Maine. LOL  But I have to admit, one of my agents was contacted by an inmate also.  He was looking for a house for his women and kids.  And the women was plural.  Just wanted one house though and near the prison so they could visit.
