My 88-year-old aunt got a similar email not long ago. I'll tell you what 
I told her.

Anytime you get an email asking you to send money (or an equivalent) 
with a promise of repayment, it's almost certainly a scam. Even if the 
email address looks legitimate, it's a scam. Don't answer. There's 
nothing to be gained by responding, and if you don't respond they can't 
cheat you.
