approved for you.
To receive your ATM card of $5.5 million us dollars contact Mr.Femi
Coker on this email: email@example.com with the following:
1.full Name 2. Address 3. Phone 4.Your age
They have verified my “CONTRACT/INHERITANCE payment”? Amazing, now how the hell did they do that? And what is better is that they are going to put the whole US$5.5 million into an ATM card. Who the hell ever thought of that? What is really bloody funny is that they admit the letter has ties with Nigeria! Now anyone who received this type of email from Nigeria of all places, and responded to it would have to be a bloody idiot!
What is really bloody amazing is that there is only one spelling mistake, two if you count that ATM was typed in lower case.
