Yup scam. Foreward all your spam to him
If your fee were $5k, they'd send you a "cashier's check" for $10k, for you to cash and then send the extra $5k via Western Union to his "mother". Then in a couple of weeks when your bank finds out the cashier's check is a phony, you're on the hook for the whole $10k. Plus fradulent check charges if your bank is especially cranky.
They are getting creative. Still wayyyyy too verbose though.
Dude, I need a job. Send me their contact info.
