Hello My Dear,

How are you today? Hope all is well with you. I am writing to inform you that the reason why you did not receive your $5.5M USD for a while is that we lost your contact and it was on Friday morning last week that we found your payment form in our office and from there we got your email address to reach you now. After the last meeting held with the Federal Ministry of Finance concerning this matter, The Finance Minister gave order to transfer your fund through Western Union money transfer $5000.00 twice per day that means you will be receiving $10,000.00 each day until your payment is over. Now, the fund was handed over to the Western Union Office this morning to start transferring your fund immediately with immediate effect. Note that you will be receiving $10,000.00 each day as scheduled.

Below is the information to contact Western Union office and you are advised to contact them immediately you receive this email and also reconfirm your information to them to enable them to release the necessary information for you to receive your fund without making any mistake on it.

Contact Person Mr James Usman.
Emai( westernuniontransfer9836@gmail.com
Note that the administrator payment needs these details from you to process your payment:

Your. Country----------------------------------------------------

Your. Test question------------------------------------------------------------

Comply with Mr James Usman the new Director of wstern union now because as soon as you send this required details to him, he will start sending your payment by Western Union, Call or send SMS to; +22969104822

Thanks You.
Mr George Tanko
The email was sent from the email address "Mr George Tanko <www.@docomonet.jp>", with the Reply-to address "Mr George Tanko <westernuniontransfer9836@gmail.com>" and the subject "OFFICE OF THE WESTERN UNION MONEY TRANSFER".

The email is a classic example of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam with promises of a large sum of money being transferred to the victim. Anyone responding to it will be told that there is a fee/tax/insurance payment to be paid to receive the money. This will be followed by payment after payment until the victim runs out of money or realises that they are being scammed.
