and here is my reply:

Dear sir,

Your email is received with many thanks. As per the payment of the $73, kindly assist me with more information on how I am to make payment. Kindly, do you have any other name I can use to send you the money? Western Union officials told me to include a middle name in your ‘Mike Aku’ name. Example: (first-name, middle name, surnname), Mike <middle-name> Aku.

Kindly get back to me with this information, so I can quickly make payment.

regards
F.O

New Discovery

From my inbox, I could see the email address: steve.burton@sherwood-frames.com in the from field, appearing the email actually came from sherwood-frames.com, a photography website.

I clicked on my reply button, I see another email address: pr_office@konin.lm.pl. An online search for the domain reveals a polish website: http://www.konin.lm.pl/.

Other scam emails from the konin.lm.pl domain can be found here: http://www.419scam.org/419-konin-lm-pl.htm. Note that the email address pr_office@konin.lm.pl is among the 23email addresses listed in the link  above.

I hope this MTN Nigerian-Polish scammer replies my email. I’ll keep you posted.
