    Ha, its been a while since I have received one of these.

    You can be 100% sure that any request like this coming from Benin is the initial stage of a scam.

    Hi Foody,

    It never hurts to indulge these types of emails if you are unsure, you will see by their second email whether they are angling for you to pay money to them for some reason.
    This email in particular screams scam when someone has three free email addresses. I would think that any company of substance would have their own registered domain and webpage.

    Good luck,

    Chris

    I stopped reading at “Dear Sirs,”

    These scam emails are so easy to spot.

    Just reply back to them with another scam email that you received.

    I also tend to stop reading at Dear Sirs, especially because I am not a Sir :D

    But it doesn’t hurt to send an email back and see what the next response is that you get. I wouldn’t be spending any time on it though.

    Cheers

    Cat :)

    You need to be a bit careful with that.

    As unsophisticated as some of these scam are, replying tells them that the email account is active. Next thing you are getting these types of requests regularly.
