The email was sent from the email address "PAYMENT CENTER DEPARTMENT <godwelloffiert@gmail.com>", with the subject "ATTENTION CONTRACT BENEFICIARY"

The email raises a number of red flags that indicate that this is a scam. Firstly, banks and major companies do not use free email addresses such as Gmail. Secondly, the email address account "godwelloffiert" bears no resemblance to the claimed name of the sender "Priscilla Ekwere Eleje". Thirdly, the email was sent to multiple recipients using BCC. Finally, banks do not randomly write to people advising them that they are entitled to large sums of money (in this case six million dollars). 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 +2348054807070 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.
