I got his mail in my spam box, and I am wondering what this is about. He mentions money so it's got to be a scam of sorts but what?:

He may want you to send him a brochure or newsletter so he can use it on other people & claim it's his organization for future scams? Why can't he do internet research or go to the library? Ask what he wants to know about your organization in particular, what is the paper about, why is he interested in your company, etc.

Did you notice this in the e-mail ?

I tried googling it, but the websites were not in English, though I kept seeing Azerbaijan mentioned, which is geographically close to Iran, and we do get 419'ers from there - often quite fun ones too.
