    Pleas, for gods sake don't send these scammers any personal information! They are after either an advance sum:"to cover the administaration costs", or phishing for personal information, with which to gain loans, cash advances and such with your identity.
    For further advice check, for instance www.scams.com.
    I have just received a similar e-mail (below) and you can be sure that they will not gain anything from me.
