Crocodiles are no less dangerous when you see the pretensions of these nutters.
They want to cut a freight charge for their outlandish services. A few thousand euros. There is nothing to the mail itself. The story is fictitious, so don’t give out any documents or personal details, don’t reply, don’t send any money – but move the mail straight to the digital dustbin.
