Mysterious Mail

I received a mysterious letter! It was addressed in red ink, by hand -- in cursive! The return address was on the back, below the flap -- no name, unfamiliar address in Renton which investigation revealed to be a UPS Store.

The lined, yellow page inside read, in whole:

"Dear [my first name]

Hi,

My name is Eric Taylor

I would like to

$BUY$

your condo at
[address]
in Seattle

Please call me at

[phone number]

Thanks
Eric"

Other than a left side Dear and a right side Thanks Eric, everything else is mostly centered, but cursive, red ink throughout.

So that looks weird. It looks like one of those marketing things trying desperately to look like not-marketing. But hey, I'll call and see if I can get Mr. Taylor to spit out a number. Alas, Mr. Taylor doesn't answer his phone and I go to voice mail/message machine. This makes me more suspicious, so I search on the [address], which finds me this:

http://www.tristarrealtyinv.com/1_3_Services.html

I found his corporation data at the WA SOS page (incorporated 2011), which lists an address in Burien, which my husband characterized as a residential area but with an indication of some sort of dance business.

Hmmm. I didn't want to leave a message. But I now had his email. I'll let you know if I hear back from Mr. Taylor. I think he has this idea I'm an absentee owner with no mortgage, who would be all too happy to unload the property at an unreasonably low price, based on what he extracted from public property records. Little does he know. I am now entertaining the idea of listing a Make Me Move price. A really ludicrous Make Me Move price.
