Never a good idea to do business with people that can't write proper English.

And no, you would not have gotten your 10K if you paid them the transfer fee. 100% scam, just like the Nigerians


Thank you. I just called this person and was going to email him.

When I saw the 01 in the email name I started to wounder and found your post. You just saved us a lot of trouble, thank you. I hope they catch him. here is his newwst info below.
