This is a follow up to the PM I sent you earlier.
I google'd the phone number and got a few returns from others who got basically the same email you got, only it was tailored to their particular businesses. The MO is for them to send you a (stolen) credit card number and ask you to charge the card an amount well over the cost of your services. They then ask you to send the surplus amount to their "agent" via Western Union.
The chances of finding out who is behind this are remote. As best I could tell looking at IP addresses in scam emails with the same phone number, they are coming from Panama.

I edited your post to remove your email as it reveals your real life information. We are very cautious about security here.
As Lakeside says, this is a very common credit card scam. It can play out in various ways, either overpaying and asking you to pay a supposed agent, or airline, or hotel, or whatever fake recipient. Or they will cancel and ask for a full refund -- by Western Union, not a credit issued to their card, which is a stolen number anyway.
One important rule of thumb to bear in mind with any inquiry like this: if the person deliberately overpays, or requests money by Western Union, it is a scam. Period. No question.
Please read this description at our sister site, scamwarners.com, for a more detailed explanation.
