Why I would be getting money from someone in Australia, I have no idea…and I will point out that he doesn’t really say either.  When he types out his name and supposed title he doesn’t even spell Diplomat correctly.

Other give aways are;

  1. zoho is a free email address, no politician uses it.
  2. diplomat is not a title (at least that I know of)
  3. Australia is not my home country of residence
  4. International Money Fund does not exist
  5. A legitimate email that wants your attention does not put Attention as the subject matter without at least some sort of follow verbiage
  6. Why would I ever consider sending most of that information over the Internet to a complete stranger?
