Possible scam?

So a “freelance” project came in and I’ve been talking back and forth for a sec but the “customer” just sent this over and this throws everything into question now. Has anyone seen or encountered this before during freelance?

Absolutely drop that like a hot rock.
There’s a very similar one we printers see every now and again, but has to do with frontloading shipping charges.

Yeah, that message throws up more red flags than I’d care to count. A brand new client you’ve never met wants you to do him a favor by engaging in a convoluted payment scheme for which you’ll receive a tip? No way.

Did you look at the raw text header to see where the email might have originated?

Scamoooo. So sorry. Here’s something we got similar, batch of requests and newsletter signups from sudden large bursts… so frustrating because it affects our reports for conversion rates, etc…
