    You won until you posted it here:

    I particularly like that they warned about similar scams. Is there no honor among thieves?

    This is a classic, a scammer warning you not to be scammed. Maybe reply back, ask for a "good faith" cashiers check and ask that they provide you with the same info they're asking for, plus a little more personal info.

    I ussually get these emails from a really nice banker in Nigeria...always with a different name. There are tons of nice bankers from Nigeria, who are eager to give me millions of dollars. I think they must have relatives in South Africa, especially ones who work for Yahoo Headquarters...LOL!
