This is a legit scam - dead set.
How do I know? The sender's address on the letter appears to be the Alor Street Food Night Market!
P.S. Your passport photo is revered by the very large Tamil minority, and more than acceptable to the ruling Malays. Good luck!
Avoid! This definitely looks like a scam.
I once got a mail that threatened me with subpoena. This could only be averted, allegedly, by submitting banking details. Upset, I showed this to a friend. He pointed out that you can't be subpoenad in England. That's a US thing. This demand thus definitely unmasked as a scam.
You have been landed something similar, it seems.
"And in furtherance to claim your $2.5Million USD payment, he has sent us his full name and address which is where he want us to send the payment check seeing that the payment is processed and ?ts ready for release."
The "?ts" suggests it may be a scam.
Run away...FAST. It's a scam. Check this website for more information.
Moooo, this is a scam! Delete the thing immediately and clear your history and cookies!
As a general rule never open any email that is addressed to you if you do not know the source.
Asking for any personal information, especially photo ID and such opens you up for identity theft.
It is also a good idea to clear out your junk mail on a regular basis if you do not do that already.
Looks like I should have logged in to Bee Ate Joe BEFORE breakfast.
Because several other Outhnagers have already tagged this as a scam.
It reminds me of the time I stopped at a traffic signal on 24th & Wisconsin Av and a VERY good-looking woman leaned in through the open window, passenger's side, and said she'd do anything I wanted her to do, for fifty dollars.
(Dad always warned us that IF an offer sounds too good to be true, it very well might NOT be true, but I figured this MIGHT be a chance to get what I wanted done, DONE!)
So I handed her two twenties a, five, and five singles, and said
"Paint my garage!"
By then the light had changed, and the driver behind me honked impatiently, so I took off, drove around the block, so as to get back there and tell her my address and what color I preferred.
But, by the time I got back around, she was already gone.
I imagined that she might be walking toward the Sears store on 21st & North, to get some WEATHERBEATER (TM) latex, so I drove in that direction, but, I didn't see her.
So, if any of you see a good looking woman with a gallon of paint in each hand, wandering around 24th & Wisconsin, tell her I sold the house and moved, and she can keep the paint.
I could really use that 250 million...if anyone has an extra few hundred million burning a hole in their pocket, I would certainly appreciate it.
moo, I believe Mr Victor Omah is on the up and up. I think I would bite!
