I doubt that is any known natural language. it is either a conscript, or someone messing with you. I am no expert though. Resembles Arabic a little bit.

I think it's shorthand. Check out a page on Omniglot about it. Writers of shorthand often make large spaces when writing. Who knows?

I don't know of any shorthand that's written from right to left. That said, there could exist Arabic forms of shorthand. It is also entirely possible that this could be normal Arabic writing, but just with really bad letter forms. :P

Hahaha, I didn't even notice that it was right to left. I've never seen hand-written Arabic before, so I'm not the one to ask. :lol:

No It's not Arabic or anything like it, the letters are separate from each other.
