The email was sent from the email address "Nelson Ike <larry.sm01@gmail.com>", with the Reply-to address "wunion700@gmail.com" and the subject "Attention:Dear!!!".

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.

Attn: Beneficiary

My name is Barrister John Edward Freedom Chamber, I want to inform you that your fund payment file was brought to my office this morning for me to cancel your fund because the director of the western union and money gram in Benin Republic said that I should divert your fund to the Government Treasury account just because you can not pay for the fee of your fund which is $120.00 only before you start receiving your fund.

He said that you abandon your fund for some times without hearing from you, my spirit did not allow me to cancel your fund because I know the value and the important of what you are about to receive, I told them to wait until I heard from you to know the reason why you rejected such amount of Five million united states dollars ($5,000.000.00) which I know it will change your life for good just because of $120.00USD.

I want your urgent response or you call me at +229-9650-2647 as soon as you receive this email and to explain to me the reason you abandon your fund, or if you don't need it again then I will send you a power of attorney which you will sign and I will change your name to another person so that the Government will not claim this money that is left for you, wait to hear from you as soon as possible today.

Thanks,
Barrister John Edward Esq.
