Some scammers are in such a hurry to get their formats out that they forget to check them

Take a look at this phrase from the above email - "$2.1 USD (Five Hundred Thousand United State Dollars)"

The money they speak of does not exist, not even the "2.1 USD", it's a scam.

The following search result on the opening line reveals other examples of the same scam, in the other examples it appears they have the dollar values right.

It is also worth noting, Western Union does not use a "Hotmail" email address. :wink:
