RE: Your compensation.

Just noticed today that his one says "EFCC" which is very similar to "FCC" which is the name of the Federal Communication Commission in the US. I'd bet many get caught by that one!

RE: Your compensation.

The Federal Government of Nigeria through provisions in Section 419 of the
Criminal Code came up with punitive measures to deter and punish
offenders.The Advance Fee Fraud section deal mainly with cases of advance
fee fraud (commonly called 419) such as obtaining by false pretence
through different fraudulent schemes e.g. contract scam, credit card/ATM
card scam, inheritance scam, western union transfer scam, FBI
investigation scam, job scam, loan scam, lottery scam, “wash wash” scam
(money washing scam), marriage scam. Immigration scam, counterfeiting and
religious scam.

This is to officially announce to you that some scam syndicates were
apprehended in Lagos, Nigeria few days ago at western union agent office
when they were about to pick up some money sent to them by their scam
victims and they were handed over to our Investigation Department, after
several interrogations and tortures your name, email address and contact
details were among those mentioned by the scam syndicates as a victim of
their operations.

After our investigations, a meeting was held between the Board of
Directors of The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and it
was agreed that the sum of sixty thousand US Dollars (US$60,000) should be
transferred to you out of the funds that Federal Government of Nigeria has
set aside to compensate everyone who have sent money to fraudsters in
Nigeria, because your name and contact details were among those mentioned
by the scam syndicates.

Right now we are working hand in hand with Western Union and Interpol to
track every fraudsters down. The purpose for this is to regain the lost
glory of our great country Nigeria and to also show the entire world that
this government is highly ready to fight corruption. In 2007, we were
rated as one of the most corrupt countries in the world and it is never a
good title. Do not respond to their e-mails, letters and phone calls any
longer. They are scammers and you should be very careful to avoid being a
victim to fraudsters any longer because they have nothing to offer you but
to rip-off what you have worked hard to earn.

Important: Please do not send your email address and password to anybody.
Take note of this because there are lots of fraudsters out there claiming
to be your email administrator requesting for email address and password.
If you have already done that before, it is strongly recommended that you
change your password immediately or register a new email address.

Please note that some fraudsters are claiming to be the Executive
Chairman, Chief Mrs. Farida Mzamber Waziri (AIG rtd.) or staff of The
Economic and Financial Crimes Commission have recently been sending phony
e-mails/letters and also calling unsuspecting persons, with intent to
defraud them. It is important to note that these fraudsters are criminals
engaged in Advanced Fee Fraud known in Nigeria as 419. Every day, people
throughout the world are falling victim to scams of one kind or another.
But remember - if it sounds too good to be true, it is probably a scam. In
the circumstance, we unreservedly advice you to dissociate yourself from
all correspondence and transactions entered into based on evidently
fraudulent and fictitious claims.
