One funny thing with Nigerian 419 scammers is that they have so many difficulties with understanding first names and surnames. Reverend Brian Williams would have a much better pick than Reverend Williams Brian, don’t you think? As always when the scammers use addresses that I have never sent one single mail from, however, it’s published at one of the sites that I run.
Rev Williams Brian probably doesn’t exist, and neither does the half a million dollars he sais he wants to give away. So you got his mail too? Well, that is proof enough that this is just another scam.
