This scam is comically bad, yet who knows if anyone fell for it? This is exactly how the mail came through. I’m leaving in the email addresses, well, just because.
I love the question and answers below, and the attention to detail — even the FedEx address is fake. Be sure to tell her your nearest airport! Needless to say, delete messages like this, don’t reply to them.
