The scam message below adopts a kind of reverse psychology that is common in many scam messages. What the scammer wants to do is get you on the hook and talking to him, so he can eventually reel you in. This message, therefore, doesn’t offer you money, it says that some previous offer of money has been cancelled — you missed your chance! He hopes you’ll reply and ask what happened, and then … he’ll pick your pocket.
