Email from Scammer:

Hello,

I hope you are fine and alright. I have been busy myself but doing great. There is something i think i must bring to your notice.

After a reconciliation of my account , i discovered that somehow my assistant must have over paid you. The payment that was meant for another transaction was added to your money, however i want to believe i wont have a problem with you.


Please once you receive your payment, i will like you to deduct your money and send the remaining via western union,to me so i can liaise with the shippers my self, so as to ensure that pick up is done asap. I will ask them to contact you as soon as possible .Let me know as soon as you get your payment.

I will like you to acknowledge receipt of this email by emailing me back.

Warm regards.
