So I thought it very wise to contact you so as to you should help me receive the funds through Western Union and money gram.

I know quite all right that you will be wondering how I got your contact. A friend of mine that works with the ministry of commerce here in Ghana, she is in the department of library cyber attendee, she gave me your email and told me that you are a very reliable person that I can really lean on. Right now, I am presently in Togo but at the border of Ghana.

I will be at the Western Union office to start sending to you the money.
The total sum is $1.5 million usd and I will send about 100 000usd to your names by money gram and Western Union before I will make the transfer of the other funds. Please when you cash the first fund, then firstly open an account so that if I transfer the second batch of the transfer and if we will need funds to cover the charges, then you can withdraw from the account you opened and send down to me.

I also need about six trusted names from you to enable me to send the money to you in, by bit by bit through the Western Union and I will send the payment information to you via email as soon as I make the payment. If you are in terms with all this, then I would want you to send me your.

The email was sent from the email address "Jeff Benson <jeff.716benson@yahoo.co.uk>", with the subject "Answer. And please get back to me.".

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.
