    If they're using gmail it's a scam.

    I got one of these emails also. It sounded way to good to be true so I deleted.

    That says fake check to me. That sentence isn't written by a native speaker.
    Every time you click a scammer moans in agony; every time you post a scammer screams in pain!

    Nigerian scammers are notorious of hacking into school and university email systems to send out their scam spam. In this case, Baker University in Baldwin City, Kansas was the target, so without any doubt, this is a scam.
    I love scammers! They're delicious with some fava beans and a nice Chianti.

    Agreed, but I've found that a large majority of these hijacked edu accounts show an IP address that originates in Nigeria.

    Att.net is still a free email server. I'd say continue to be leery.
