The sender was Djibo Raphael <firstname.lastname@example.org>, although it may have been spoofed.
Compliment of the season. My name is Djibo Raphael from Burkina Faso . I am a professional banker, working with one of the well-known international banks in Africa . I recovered an intestate account file of Five Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars ($5.500.000), owned by one of our foreign customers. My further investigations into the account proved that the account holder involved in a jet crash that killed him, his family and close relatives, leaving no one behind to file claim on the account. In fact all the efforts I made to locate any of his relative or foreign business partners since last year were futile.
Therefore, I have decided to position you before my bank as the Foreign Business Partner /Consultant of the deceased in order to get the funds transferred in your account since no one will come for the claim thereafter. I am ready to reward you with 33% (US$1,815,000.00) of the total sum for your corporate assistance. Invariably, I cannot handle this deal successfully without your help because I am a civil servant, besides, I cannot stand as the claimant to a foreigner. The secret is bound between me and you. If you are capable, get back to me promptly with your full detailed information, so that I will send you the application for this claim. Do not entertain any fear for there is no risk.
I am waiting for your urgent response.
