reside here in Elkins Park, PA 19027. My residential address is as
follows. 1800 Ashbourne Rd, Unit 30231, Elkins Park, PA 19027, United
States, am thinking of relocating since I am now rich. I am one of
those that took part in the Compensation in Nigeria many years ago and
they refused to pay me, I had paid over US$120,000 while in the US,
trying to get my payment all to no avail. So I decided to travel down
to Nigeria with all my compensation documents, And I was directed to
meet Barrister Obumneme Egwuatu, who is the member of COMPENSATION
AWARD COMMITTEE and United States Consulate Attorney General, and I
contacted him and he explained everything to me. He said whoever is

contacting us through emails are fake. He took me to the paying bank
for the claim of my Compensation payment. Right now I am the most
happiest woman on earth because I have received my compensation funds
of $1.5 Million US Dollars Moreover, Barrister Obumneme Egwuatu,
showed me the full information of those that are yet to receive their
payments and I saw your email address as one of the beneficiaries,
that is why I decided to email you to stop dealing with those people,
they are not with your fund, they are only making money out of you. I
will advise you to contact Barrister Obumneme Egwuatu.

Obumneme Egwuatu was just US$270 for the paper works, take note of
that.As soon as you contact him he will send you the payment

The email was sent from the email address "Mary Turner <officeservice700000000@gmail.com>", with the Reply-to address "barristerobumnemeegwuatu1982@gmail.com" and the subject "Re: You really have to stop dealing with those people,".

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.
