A very standard scam only remarkable in it's poor wording and execution.

The fatal flaw is, of course, that you will have never dealt with nor heard of this person before, let alone his unknown business transaction, but it is intended that you will be so beguiled by the lure of money on offer you will be drawn into further enquiries.

During those enquiries you will be made aware of the 'charges' you will have to pay, and thus the scam begins.

This is a very crude and unsophisticated scam mail, but still capable of snaring the unwary.
