When the email is at yahoo, or gmail or hotmail, and not the company domain, you can basically bet it's a scam.

Scam No employer uses free Yahoo emails No company hires anyone to work on a rig without a single face to face interview No company asks for a scan of your passport. You present your passport at the face to face interview This is a Nigerian scam

LOL its a nigerian using a yahoo address. It even says clearly in the last few lines that it is subject to Nigerian law - LOL so you are applying for a job in China from someone based in Nigeria. I suggest that if you think its genuine that you send them a copy of your passport and then your bank details too.
