I received this message this morning:

So not only is this scam annoying, but I continue to receive variations on a theme. Part of me wants to write back and tell the sender I charge $300 per lesson and they can send a deposit, American cash only, to me in advance. The smarter part of me is just trashing the message, though. (No need to let the sender know a real person is reading this junk!)

I wonder if anyone has actually fallen for this.
