    Yes I had something similar a little while back and smelt a rat straight away so I kept him/her on a carrot without giving out any details. Just told them that if they were serious just come to the dojo where we could talk business and meet my solicitor.... needless to say the the emails dried up!

    Yet people fall for it everyday.
    Then they have the nerve to whine about it.

    It went something like this.... My son was involved in an auto accident (who was heavily into karate) and before he died he wanted his mother (whom apparently was loaded from her husbands will) to form a martial arts group dedicated to young people from deprived or poor backgrounds and as they heard so much about my willingness to teach people for nothing (if they are genuinely prepared to work for it) they would help me set up a fund to build a purpose built dojo..... get the jist?
    I would suspect that it was a Nigerian 419 er as they've become known as
    They come in other forms too, like.... your email something number has come up and you have won 5,000,000 euros congratulations bla bla.....
    If it sounds to good to be true its 99% sure that it is'nt
    Take care.....

    Our school recently received a series of emails related to a similar scam. They don't start with the "hey send us your account information" email. The scammers use a little bait then real you in.

    Our version asked for private lessons for her son when he's in the US from the UK for two weeks. They asked for 2 weeks of private lessons, 2 hours/day. First they want your name and home address. We told them training has to be at the school. After several emails you get the final "hey send us your account information" email. The email asks for the personal information so they can "trust you". The bastard then says they will send you the check for private lessons up front but with an additional amount. They request that you "immediately" send the balance to the travel agency.

    We didn't get caught by this one. Something to watch for in the requests is the blatantly bad spelling. The scammer gets your attention with asking for private lessons and questions how well they can trust you as a way for you to prove your trustworthiness by sending them your money.

    Whoever is doing this is learning how to do it better. They may actually learn to spell in English someday.
