I would follow your instincts and not respond.  It could all be on the up and up, but even as I read it, it seemed off.

I wouldn't even respond... Just sounds scammy, especially if it came from CL.

Sounds like a scam artist. Look at the way it's written. Ignore this one.

I think it's just a Dad making sure his child will be in the best care. I get it. Answers the questions honestly and go from there.

Just answer the questions. But if he emails back asking for bank account info or any other personal info just ignore and delete. Don't baby sit in the hotel. And meet in a public place for the first time. Maybe like chik fil a and have lunch so the daughter can play.
