Well there was nothing wrong with e-mail when we got it.
So not even the scammer are sure if he contact he contacted you. No wonder the business proposal was never concluded.
Wait a minute Festus, you just said we did not conclude the transaction and that you concluded the transaction with someone else, what the hell are you talking about now?
Not bad for never concluding this so-called business proposal. Who in his right state of mind will pay someone (who had nothing to do with the transaction) $650,000.00 if you clinched the multi-million dollar deal with someone else.
If you are so extremely busy, why didn't you ask your secretary to send this e-mail?
So many people reply blindly to e-mails like these without reading it carefully and applying common logic to the facts mentioned in the e-mail. Nothing makes logical sense in this e-mail so why would you trust a confused idiot like this? There was no multi-million-dollar deal, there will never be any and for the $650,000.00 bank draft, it is most likely some cheap counterfeit job.
