I am Dr.Sarah Dada with the Financial Intelligence Unit of ECONOMIC & FINANCIAL CRIMES COMMISSION (EFCC). The ECONOMIC & FINANCIAL CRIME COMMISSION in alliance with Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) have been working towards the eradication of fraudsters and Con Artists in Western part of Africa With the help of the INTERPOL and the United Nation.
We have been able to track down so many of this Con artist in various parts of west African countries which includes (NIGERIA, REPUBLIC OF BENIN, TOGO, GHANA CAMEROON AND SENEGAL) and they are all in our custody here in Lagos Nigeria. After proper investigations, we were able to recover some cash at hand and bank which were supposed to be remitted to you but weren't due to greed. These funds are now being retrieved and will be delivered to intended recipient. We also found a computer hard drive containing your email content and that of other victims. We at the zenith of affairs of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and the United Nations Representatives in Nigeria have agreed that the total sum of USD68.4M (Sixty Eight Million, Four Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) be shared among the 342 email contacts found on the fraudster’s hard drive.
This email is being directed to you because your email address was found in one of the Con Artist's Scrap file in the computer hard drive in our custody here in Nigeria. You are therefore being compensated with the total sum $1,000,000.00 (ONE MILLION DOLLARS).
We have made arrangement to provide secure Money transfer through internationally renowned Money Transfer Merchant Head quarters here in Lagos Nigeria to avoid misappropriation. Our workforce has been instructed to fully oversee the transfer process for security reasons.
