I was been trying to send you an E-mail since yesterday for the Western Union payment details but the message keep returning back I don't really know why, therefore I try to re-sending the e-mail to you again today with all the Western Union payment information for you to pick up the money from any outlet Western Union around you, such as MTCN and Sender's Name so that you will pick up this $5,200.00. United State Dollars to enable us send another $5,200.00m tomorrow as you know we will be sending you only $5,200.00 United State Dollars per day.

Mr. Paul Larry
Email: westernunionheadofficeinkansas@yahoo.com
The email was sent from the email address "Mr. Paul Larry <ubabankplc99@yahoo.com>", with the Reply-to address "westernunionheadofficeinkansas@yahoo.com" and the subject "YOUR URGENT ATTENTION IS NEEDED".

The email raises a number of red flags that indicate that this is a scam. Firstly, the email was sent from a totally different email address to the one you are asked to reply to and neither address match the sender's name. Secondly, companies do not randomply write to people advising them that they are entitled to large sums of money. Thirdly, the email was sent to multiple recipients using BCC. 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.
