Based on our findings in this investigation department we wish to warn you against some Miscreants, Hoodlums and Touts who go about scamming innocent people by claiming to be who they are not and thereby tarnishing the image of this wonderful country, NIGERIA.

As a matter of fact we have been on this investigation assignments for some time, known to no one but the Presidency and some top government official who are in support of this investigation team to help stop fraudulent activities in this country, and as well restore the image that has been tarnished by the above listed group of people.

Although we have been able to come up with some good result about the people that have extorted money from you illegally, and we wish to list them so that you will personally indicate them by writing back to us with the name of whom scammed you among them as we want to make sure your payment is routed to you without any further delay. Note that we will surely deal and bring to book the people using the names of government officials below. If only you will cooperate with us by co indicating correctly any of them.

You do see them from time to time, in effect it's a recovery scam. They'll tell you that you're due compensation from the ill gotten gains of messrs Soludo etc, then eventually the CBN will contact you to see about payment of your funds.

From there on in, it's straight 419.

Interestingly I got the very same email last week, the only difference being the EFCC agent's name.

The recovery lads can often make for good baits, since a real scam victim would be rather leery of unsolicited e-mails that are addressed to Beneficiary. But of course, it all depends on the type of lad. The EFCC is very popular, but you'll also get them from the CBN, FBI, CIA, MI5, Scotland Yard, and maybe even Santa himself if the lad thinks it might work. And yes, they're always from the yahoo/gmail divison of the agency they represent.

I mean its a fake, who would use a gmail account to post such an email
A scammer of course. But you knew that! Wink For some reason, the EFCC and CBN won't let mugus use their mail servers (at least not for free!).

A good time-waster is to ask your lad why he is using gmail/yahoo instead of his official address. The answers can be quite entertaining, especially if you ask after several "risky free / 100% real" assurances.
NOTE: I'm not in favour of educating the lads, but this topic is safe because there's no way they're going to be able to use (example) Charles Soludo's official e-mail address to scam people. If a lad IS able to hack a bank or LEA's website, he's not going to waste time begging for WU transfers!
