Phone; +229 97256730
The email was sent from the email address "FEDERAL HIGH COURT <smartozoh@gmail.com>", with the Reply-to address "efhcbr2@gmail.com" and the subject "FROM THE FEDERAL HIGH COURT OF BENIN".

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.
