I received the following email yesterday. Little did the sender know that I don’t live in the USA. This is obviously a scam in the same vein as the Nigerian email scam, only this time it is aiming saxophonists.

My Son would be coming to US (your city) Before the end of this month for a period of time and with his friend for 2 Months.he is just a beginner and he is 16 years old, i want you to help me teach lesson during his stay. So, kindly let me know your charges cost per week's ,in order for me to arrange for his payment before he travels down to your side. I have also made preparation for his personal equipment he will be using privately at home after the lesson during his stay.
