THIS PAYMENT WILL BE PROGRAMMED INTO AN AUTOMATED TELLER MACHINE (ATM CARD) POWERED BY MASTERCARD AND WILL BE MAILED TO YOUR ADDRESS BY COURIER SERVICE.

BUT THE MIX UP HERE IS THAT A LADY WHO CLAIMED TO BE YOUR RELATION BY NAME SHARON AND A NIGERIA LAWYER STEVE CAME TO MY OFFICE THIS MORNING WITH AN AFFIDAVIT DATED 15TH SEPTEMBER 2011 DIRECTING US TO EFFECT PAYMENT TO AN ACCOUNT DOMICILED IN GREECE. THEY SAID YOU HAVE A TERMINAL SICKNESS AND HAD DIRECTED THEM TO DIVERT THE FUNDS TO GREECE FOR CHARITY WORK AS YOU WISH.

PLEASE CONFIRM TO THE UNDERSIGNED IF YOU ARE OF ANY PRIVY TO THIS ARRANGEMENT AND IF YOU AUTHORIZED THEM TO TRANSFER THE FUNDS TO GREECE ON YOUR BEHALF.

CAUSED THIS DELAY IN YOUR PAYMENT.

YOURS SINCERELY,
GODWIN EMEFIELE
GOVERNOR, CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA (C.B.N)
The email was sent from the email address "emefiele_cbn@yahoo.com", with the subject "ATTN: BENEFICIARY".

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.
