If not for the sender being a guy with my ideal combination of cynicism, good judgement and general knowledge, I would disbelieve:

Another good one: "asset rental". There are companies out there that, for a fee of $5k or so, will "rent" you $100k just long enough to get a bank statement with your name and a $100k balance on it. Y'know, just to show the bank that you have cash on hand.

Further affiant sayeth not. I think I want to clean out my checking account to a minimum.

Kill me.

First, the data include those who earned their degrees years ago, prior to
the erosion of academic standards and the degradation of the curriculum
that has been accelerating over the last few decades. As the recent
National Assessment of Adult Literacy shows, the literacy of college
graduates has been declining. For example, today, only 31% of college
graduates reach the "proficient" level with regard to their comprehension of
prose, compared with 40% in 1992.
