The amount of money that is mentioned in this email is ridiculous. Beware

These guys will send you a counterfeited cheque. You'll cash it at your bank and will harrass you to make the WU payment, less a good fee for you. Say, you'll send £1000 by WU for a £1800 cheque, good deal. The cheque will bounce within the 10 days and not only you've lost your 17BII, but also £1000 : WU sent money is irrevocable !

You can check a few more offers that I got recently, the last two at the bottom are quite interesting...
Here is the list.
