I've received multiple emails like that .... I read an article somewhere that this kind of scam has been going on before email existed, people would write letters to CEO's and other wealthy people trying to get them to fall for this. The crazy thing is, people have fallen for it and lost a lot of money!

OH yeah... my b/f forwarded it to a cop friend of his - they said it was definitely a money laundering op - and that if he wanted to actually do it, they would catch the guy on the pickup of the item. Naturally he didn't want to get involved! LOL

I got an email very similar to this one,from a supossed dying man.Muggins(me) here sort of believed him and gave him the benefit of the doubt.Luckily my brain got into action and i realised the whole thing was a massive stupid hoax/fraud attempt.Thankfully i didn't give any bank details!
