The scammer who sent this email is going to have a hard time just working out which email address to look at to see if they have any replies. The email was (allegedly) sent from email@example.com – with a Reply-to address of firstname.lastname@example.org – but I’m asked to reply to email@example.com.
Do you want to guess where this email was sent from? Malaysia (Money Gram Malaysia)? Japan (yahoo.co.jp)? No. It was sent from the Australian National University. I think maybe their students need to spend more time on their academic studies and less time on their computers trying to scam innocent victims.
