    Not new, I get these type of emails all the time. Pretty annoying but I can`t imagine the amount of people who actually fall for this.

    The strategy is much more complex then you perhaps think, Basically these emails are sent out knowing people will think they're scams or bots. What they rely on is people who message them back, then they reply with a "nono, it's 100% legit. To prove it i'll send you 4000$, but you have to send back 50% once you recieve it.
    People think like, hmmm ok this might be okay, so they get the 4000$ check. They send 50% back, and they assume they have the 2000$. Most people fail to check or wait for the check to go through though, as the checks cause an error in the banking system and get denied. Then you are down 2k, with a worthless check for 4 grand.
