This isn’t some sort of scam, where some unwitting victim falls prey to an online con-merchant is it?

I’d feel better if you were to give me some of your personal details first. Could you forward me a copy of YOUR passport? It seems only fair if you’re asking for a copy of mine.

Thanks greatly.

Hi Dr. John.

Whoa! All this time I thought you were a scam artist, trying to get people to supply personal details to you so that you could steal their money, or even worse their identity! It turns out you actually exist! You have a photograph on an official identity card, which means you *are a genuine employee!

Please take this email as a humble apology. I’m sorry I doubted you.

Could you send me a cheque instead?


*Have used Photoshop quite a bit.
