    It's not a natural expression.

    It's not used. Note that we don't say "Thank you a lot" either.

    Thanks a lot.
    Thanks very much.
    Thank you very much.
    Many thanks.
    Cheers.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Is "I can't thank you enough" used?

    Thanks a lot.
    Thanks very much.
    Thank you very much.
    Many thanks.
    Cheers.
    I think it's like Ta muchly- a deliberately unnatural way of saying thanks.
