I just wanted to share with those that could be affected by this that I've been getting some spam/scam e-mails in my gmail account, requesting Czech lessons for the sender's supposed 16-year-old son. The sender (and I've gotten several messages like this from senders by different names - or the same person with multiple aliases) e-mails me, asking me to quote a price for two months of Czech lessons for his son, and says he will pay the amount and send his son to live in my city. He says he will wire the money, of which a portion will go to me and a portion to cover the son's living expenses. The guy says his name is Anthony Lagrosa and he's from France. I've gotten other messages with different sender names, which I didn't even open. Didn't write the names down, though. They sounded pretty Anglo. I have not been replying to these requests. I did the first time, thinking the request for lessons was legitimate. Now I'm certain it's a scam with some of the characteristics of the Nigerian advance fee fraud. See wikipedia for more info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advance_fee_fraud. Just thought others may benefit from this info. I see this so-called Mr. Lagrosa has been up to no good in the "pet business" as well: http://www.kittenlist.co.uk/index.php?page=scams. The website I cited here also includes a good description of how the type of 'cashiers cheque? or 'wired money' scam works.
