Wrong Name Messages

It doesn’t happen often but occasionally on here I will receive a message which starts with “Dear…” but is then followed by someone else’s name (today I had one that started “Dear Stephen…”.

Now this is undoubtedly, most of the time, because of parents firing off messages to 5 or 6 tutors and forgetting to change the forename of the tutor they are sending the message to.

My question is, what do other tutors do in this situation? I’m sure it’s not just me that gets these.

I’ve had it a couple of times and I tend to ignore the mistake and respond, signing off with my name :slight_smile:
