I don't know what the scam is but I can assure you it ISa scam.The only way you could possibly do it would be if this was your best friend of 25 years!!! !! No kidding though,nowadays it is unsafe to deal with strangers asking favors of you .And , don 't email her again .Just delete any further correspondence .I would also let genforumknow about this and include the email you received. It's a shame we have to be so suspicious nowadays, but we do !
