Email Scam Or Desperate Client?

Sun Jan 22, 2006 2:24 pm

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

What puzzled me was that they specifically designed the text matching the photo. Maybe they're getting more advanced...
