    This is just another version of the "Nigerian" scam.

    Some scams really amaze me. I've gotten a couple of emails telling me some distant relative of mine has died and I'm the only person they could find to take some million dollar inheritance.

    Camroon is a known hot bed of internet fraud, I don't know why but for some reason almost any offer from there is fraud.

    I once inquired to a dog that was for sale on the internet. Everything seemed normal up until the 3rd message sent back. They told me the dog was in South America and that they would pay to ship it to the states if I paid the shipping to Canada. They gave me a number to call to make arrangements and sent a bunch of pictures of the dog. As soon as they mentioned it was in South America I knew it was a scam. I chose just to let the sleeping scammer stay sleeping and moved on to better things lol.
