FYI this has all the markings of a classic internet scam. Jane's
email account has likely been compromised. DO NOT send funds until
you've verified with her >>via some other email address or method<<
that this is legitimate. (Again, it's important that you NOT use
this email account to do so.)
I hear about this particular scam all the time, so please be cautious.
