Don't people READ their emails?

What the heck? Do people NOT read their emails? I listed my motorcycle on Craigslist recently. A couple days ago I received an email asking if it was still for sale. I replied that it was available and then received this little gem (anyone who has sold something on the net probably has received something similar). Please note the extra email at the bottom from "Deaf World" which this person left tacked on:

Hello thanks am glad to read from you ,will appreciate more pictures. i am a marine engineer and my permanent residence is in Pacific Junction, Iowa, i am at sea right now. I am buying this for my twin sister as a surprise promise Gift so am willing to offer you the amount you required. I can only pay through PayPal at the moment as i don't have access to my bank account online (i don't have internet banking with it), but i have it attached to my PayPal account, and this is why i insisted on using PayPal to pay,all i will need is your
PayPal email address to make the payments, and if you don't have a PayPal account yet, you can set one up at www.paypal.com it cant take you less than 3mins to do that, i will be expecting your PayPal email so l can pay and also get back to me with your best price on this. I have a pick up agent that will come for the pick  up after payments has been sorted.
l will be waiting for your reply asap
Regards

My intital reaction involved lots of swearing and suggestions as to what this person could do with certain yard implements, but then I toned it down. But I still hoped they would get my message.
My Response:

What a coincidence - I am at sea and I am selling the bike for my twin sister!

What do you think the chances of that happening really are?
My price on the bike just went up to $15,287.00 USD. Cash only.
So I guess you can stuff teeny tiny little metal bits up your nose-holes.

This time I responded with two words, one of which my mommy doesn't like me to use.
