Maybe you can negotiate a higher amount, see what they do. Then when they agree, negotiate yet more.

Thats fun to do, but it never lasts long, as they have already been reported and had their email disconnected.

If they can send out a 100,000 automatic emails like that and get a mere 100 responses - they're in the money. It's sad how people still fall for these scams.
