Obvious scam.

Reasons: 1. Look at the "TO:" on line 3
2. Why the different email addresses?
3. If its legal, why would his career and life be in danger?


I did a search for the telephone number supplied. It pulled 4 hits on Google, all of them sites related to scams (reporting of, not running of).

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE - always do your own searches before even considering replying to such emails.
