international scams targeting trainers

Emails like the one I just received below are scam emails.  They are a bit more targeted than your general spam scam.  Don't bother replying if you are a trainer or coach and receive something like this.

Subject: Inquiry...


I want to book for lesson sessions, 1 or 2 hours each day Monday to Friday (morning or evening hours) for a group of 10. We will be coming to your country for one month vacation/holiday from 1st March 2013 and in line with our plans we will require some sessions. As an instructor, we will want to come and learn in your place during our stay.

The sessions should basically be a fun experience for my group, please let me know if you can organize the sessions for us from your field of profession so i can finalize arrangements with my group and get back to you with more clear and specific details. Also confirm if you can arrange one on one sessions for us each day or if its better in group.

Awaits your email.
