Just recently I too received an email. Very well crafted and the kicker is that i picked it up on vacation on my blackberry which made it even more believable. Needless to say I cut it short BUT the place where they referenced my speaking background was real so they must search networks for potential victims. below is the letter that i received AFTER the 1st contact
