Scam Alert : Steven Morison, a.k.a. Mr Williams Steven

The usual “Nigerian overpayment” email scam is going around in the wedding space again. This one is by someone who’s email address says “Steven Morison”, even though in the actual body of the email they call themselves “Mr  Williams Steven”. Here is the copy we received:
