The email was sent from the email address "COMPENSATION PAYMENT APPROVED <email@example.com>
", with the Reply-to address "firstname.lastname@example.org
" and the subject "URGENT NOTICE NEEDED IMMEDIATELY
The email raises a number of red flags that indicate that this is a scam. Firstly, the email has been sent from a totally different address to the one that you are asked to reply to. Scammers do this because they expect that the email address that is used to send out the hundreds of copies of this mail could well be shut down and they want to be able to receive replies. Secondly, the email was sent to multiple recipients using BCC. Finally, companies do not randomly write to people advising them that they are entitled to large sums of money. This is a classic example of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam and 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.
In addition to the above red flags, the fact that telephone number +2347083314703
is a mobile phone is another major indication that this is a scam. Banks and large companies do not use mobile phones as a means of contact, they have proper landline phone numbers.
