The thing I found odd about this scam email is how the scammer seems to have used a "reply" to paste in to their main email (notice all the carets at the beginning of the lines). They also put their intended victim's email in the BCC field (I saw this when I looked at the full headers). I guess they were trying to cut some corners but it seems odd. The content is all the usual stuff we see over and over again.
