That is one MONSTROUS run on sentence there!

Maybe he'll add another few "run on" zeros to the cheque as well!

Hailey, wish it were true, but...

This is a classic "411" scam*, he wants you to eventually cough up bank info for the funds transfer, which once he has that, he can send a bank request to take money out of your account.

"If you don't have much money..." e.g. "I won't bother scamming you..." what a maroon...

If this was through a PM on the board, report it to the admins, who then could, and possibly should, send it to the FBI fraud unit.

Cheers!
Glenn

*411 refers to the prefix in Algeria where a large number of these types of scams originated.

I don't know, sounds legit to me. I think he might be my Nigerian uncle's estate lawyer.

This is one of the come-ons for a variation of the Nigerian scam. He might ask you to advance money to cover transfer fees of payment. He might ask you to take a larger check and send some of the money to a relative of his in your country to avoid transfer fees...

There's a lot that could be known or said. But the only thing you need to know is to delete the message. After forwarding a copy to: spam@ftc.gov
