Hi

The 'gentleman' certainly didn't give much away in his message, but we are missing the next chapter, in which he may have explained his 'mission' in detail. (Ugh!)
What happened, and where do the Yellow Pages come in?
Look forward to knowing more about this scam. Hope you didn't fall for it.
Thanks.

Son courriel figure sur le Translator Scammers Directory. J'espère que vous l'avez regardé avant de tomber dans le piège...

Merci Barbara and Teresa Apr 14

Thank you for your replies and sorry for getting back to you so late. I received the email through the YP website.
