I responded to this email and received a check for $2550. I wasn't thinking that this was a scam, so I did deposit the check into my account and followed the instructions to the point of wiring the funds. Western Union call me to make me aware of fraud details and asked me questions - that's when I realized that I had been scammed. No lost yet though. I retrieved the funds and redeposited it into my bank account. I did research online and read a scam report that described another email similar to this one. I called and emailed the company showing them as sender of the check. I received a response immediatey from that company instructing me to tear up that check because their ups account had be hacked into and it was a fraud. I now wait for my bank to further investigate the funds to return it to the sender's account.
Beware when you are in urgent need of finances because you'll tend to ignore warning signs. I'm glad Western Union kept their policy.
