  1. It could be intentionally used like typos in a classic Nigerian Prince scam, where it weeds out skeptics like you and makes sure that the only people who get suckered into it are *really* easy to dupe.

  2. A. The scammers are bots, not real people.

    B. The person writing it is probably not even American.

    C. There are plenty of people in America who call people “dear”. I’ve been called dear plenty of times. It’s probably a regional thing.

  3. From my former (woman/crocodile) pharmacy manager maybe.

    She was awful and called everyone “my dear” because reading our name tags and remembering our names was apparently too difficult for her.

    She finally stopped after I told her I found it insulting and she should call me by my name our not at all.
