wiped out in the Africa continent completely. The Internet Service 

Providers have noticed an increased email traffic originating from Africa to other continents, 
hence the action of the security operatives.

In this regard, three hundred and six (306) scammers have been arrested so far and arrest is still 
on. We have recovered the total sum of US$3.2 Billion from them 

both cash and assets confirmed to have come from their victims. As we have found thousands of email 
addresses of victims from their address books. It is at this 

juncture that we are contacting you.

The African Union (AU) with the United Nation (UN) are making refunds of US$1,000,000.00 each to 
victims whom his/her email address was listed on the
scammer's address books and also paying fully all those who have been defrauded at the pursue of 
their funds owed to them by our government.

Contact me to know the modalities with which your refunds will get to you.
