Not sure of their MO, but it looks like, sounds like & smells like, so it MUST BE a SCAM! If you have been scammed before, you are viewed as an easy mark!

Note the "Attn:Sir/madam,", indicating my name and my email address are currently unknown to the scammer and this is generated by software and sent to random recipients.

Here tis:

Motto:Security watch



Based on our findings in this investigastion 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. We were informed that
some Hoodlums are contacting you in respect to the collection of your
fund which was long approved in your favour by the Federal Government of
Nigeria. As a matter of fact we have been on this investigation
assignments for some time codedly known to no one but the Presidency and
some top government official who are in support of this investigation
team to help stop fraudalent activities in this country and as well
restore the image that has been tarnished by the above listed group of

Although we have been able to come up with some good result about the
people that have extorted money from you illegally and I wish to list
them so that you will personally indicate them by writting 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 and note that we
will surely deal and bring to book the names of people below if only
you will coperate with us by coindicating correctly any of them.

The names of the Scammers that have been arrested are as follows:
1) Prof. Charles Soludo
2) Chief Joseph Sanusi

The above listed names are been traced/investigated by the EFCC and some
of them have eloped the country and note that if any of them is
caught and found guilty he/she will go to jailed for 25 years(twenty
five years) as it is under the Degree 47 of the constituition of this
Agency under the section of criminal law. So we are waiting for you to
write us back and inform us if any of the above names have Extorted
money from you or once contacted you so that we can start taking the
necessary procedurial steps prior to brigning them to book and having
your fund wired into your Bank account as nominated accordingly. Should
incase the name of the Hoodlum that scammed you is not listed above, we
will advise that you forward to us with the name and his contact so that
we can trace them and as well bring them to book.

contact you prior to the Transfer of your fund, which is currently been
headed by the Bank Governor. You are further advised to deal directly
with them and do what so ever you are asked to do because that is the
only way you will achieve the success in the wire of your funds to you
as designated.

any dealy and lost this must have coursed you in any way and we promise

that such thing will not occure again in the furture and should incase
you are currently dealing with any one of them regarding your fund, we
urge you to STOP further contact with them as you are taking a very big
risk and it might interest you to know that you will never get your
fund from them as they have nothing to offer.The hoodlums will continue
coming up with expences and thereby requesting for money from you
untill you go Bankrupt. Hence, your funds will be moved and deposited
with the above named Bank and in safe hands.

Finally, we are expecting to hear from you today unfailingly so as to
enable us serve you better and wire your funds into your Bank account
as nominated.

Exactly. Good job spotting this.

This is a typical follow up scam. They will claim to be able to assist you in the transfer of the millions the original scammer was trying to move. Of course you will eventually have to pay either for their services or to offset some expenses and there you go again.

Another follow up scam to watch out for is an offer to assist in reclaiming your lost money and prosecute the scammer who originally contacted you. Once again you will be asked to pay.
