Bad journal outreach

I just got an e-mail message saying

Greetings from the Journal of Tissue Science & Engineering

We feel glad to find you as the repute in this field of work. We are pleased to inform you that the Journal of Tissue Science & Engineering is under process of accepting the articles from the experts like you. So we would like to invite you as an author for the journal to submit the articles towards the success of the journal.

Normally, I would dismiss such badly written e-mail as poorly translated Chinese from a vanity open-source journal in China, but this one claims to be from an editor in Los Angeles.

Would you allow an editor with so little control over the English language to publish your work?

Incidentally, I don’t do anything even close to tissue science and engineering, so their targeting of their spam is also very badly done.
