I received this email yesterday, first I thought it's a new version of the famous Nigeria connection, but maybe this is really a customer of the airline that was duped...? What do you think?

No Offence Konstantin, but if you can't see that as a scam then you are blind my friend. Big grin
Do not entertain these e-mails I usually hit the delete button by the time I have read "Dear Brothers...." but that would be lucky for them to get that far, I don't open anything that I am not familiar with.

It's a scan Konstantin, don't waste your time.

Take care
