This is such an inbelievable 419 scam that I don’t quite know where to begin. I consists of a wrongly addressed mail, where we (the potential victims of the scam), are supposed to believe that we have the opportunity to claim money from a fund in Nigeria. Nigeria being one of the most poverty stricken countries in the world.
It’s rather difficult to even understand the background of this mail, but whatever you do. Don’t contact professor Ola Williams…
