@BobUK Like the title of your spam: "  Your Unbelief Of The Reality and the Genuiness of your Payment .

Sounds like the title of a sequel to "The Unbearable Lightness of Being"

HAVE BEEN SCAMMED ALL MY LIFE UNTIL I MET BARR FRANKLIN RICARDO !!!

Message body

Foreign Payment Department
Nigeria General Board & Compensation Reserve Team
GRANTED APPROVAL FROM INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND
Plot 1379 Tiamiyu Savage Street, Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria
Great News, Stop Contacting Them.
 
Great News, You are advised to Stop Contacting Them.
 
I am MRS CHARLOTTE FISHER, I am a US citizen, 48 years Old. I reside here in New Braunfels Texas. My residential address is as follows. 108 Crockett Court. Apt 303, New Braunfels Texas, United States, am thinking of relocating since I am now rich. I am one of those that took part in the Compensation in Nigeria many years ago and they refused to pay me, I had paid over $45,000 while in the US,trying to get my payment all to no avail.
 
So I decided to travel down to Nigeria with all my compensation documents,And I was directed to meet BARRISTER FRANKLIN RICARDO who is the member of COMPENSATION AWARD COMMITTEE, and I contacted him and he explained everything to me. He said whoever is contacting us through emails are fake.
 
Inheritence/Compensation Law which clearly states the beneficiary/recipient is exempt from paying any out of pocket fees or charges to receive said funds.
 
He took me to the paying bank for the claim of my Compensation payment. Right now I am the most happiest woman on earth because I have received my compensation funds of $8,300,000.00 (Eight million three hundred dollars) Moreover, BARRISTER FRANKLIN RICARDO,  showed me the full information of those that are yet to receive their payments and I saw your name as one of the beneficiaries, and your email address, that is why I decided to email you to stop dealing with those people, they are not with your funds, they are only making money out of you.
 
I will advise you to contact BARRISTER FRANKLIN RICARDO
You have to contact him directly on this information below.
 
COMPENSATION AWARD HOUSE
 
Name: BARRISTER FRANKLIN RICARDO
Email: barristerfranklinricardo0147@gmail.com
 
Listed below are the name of mafias and banks behind the non release of your funds that I managed to sneak out for your kind perusal. Also you can find the emails of these fraudsters below,

    17) Mr. John Collins: Global Diplomat Director.
    18) Foreign fund diplomatic courier
    19) Barr. Becky Owens
    20) Rev. Steven Jones
  
You really have to stop dealing with those people that are contacting you and telling you that your fund is with them, it is not in anyway with them, they are only taking advantage of you and they will dry you up until you have nothing.The only money I paid after I met BARRISTER FRANKLIN RICARDO was just $350 for the delivery charges and paper works, take note of that.
 
( NOTE: TELLING YOU TO PAY FOR ANY DELIVERY OR COURIER CHARGE, THAT IS ALL NOTHING BUT LIES, I REPEAT THE ONLY MONEY YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY AND WHICH I ALSO PAID IS $350 FOR THE DELIVERY CHARGE AS IMPOSED BY THE GOVERNMENT AND YOUR PACKAGE CONTAINING YOUR ATM MASTER CARD WILL BE REACHING YOU THROUGH THE EXPRESS COURIER SERVICE.)
 
Once again stop contacting those people, I will advise you to contact BARRISTER FRANKLIN RICARDO so that he can help you to Deliver your fund instead of dealing with those liars that will be turning you around asking for different kind of money to complete your transaction.
 
Thank You and Remain Blessed.
 
MRS CHARLOTTE FISHER.

Who could resist this headline?

"Lay your life into our hands and we will make you happy, crusoe."

The random text that followed was like a four-sentence summary of Toytown:

"Stood and noise of england for what. Under pretence of tobacco smoke and take. Inquired sam nodded in three months. Gave vent to everything about."

I think I mentioned something about it when it was previously queried on this thread a few years back. Ah, here it is;)

 

Anyway, as mentioned back then, random nonsensical texts in e-mails are technically known as Bayesian poisoning.

The spammer hopes that the addition of random (or even carefully selected) words that are unlikely to appear in a spam message will cause the spam filter to believe the message to be legitimate...

Jetzt nachholen: Umstellung Ihres PayPal-Kontos!

 

I don't have a PayPal account but this mail purporting to come from service@paypal.de looks convincing initially:

 

PPal.jpg

 

Until you move the cursor over the "Zur PayPal-Seite" banner & the URL behind it is bit.ly/<jumbled characters>.

 

Also the footing text includes " PayPal wird Sie immer mit Ihrem Vor- und Nachnamen anschreiben. "

Not in this case!

 

The typo "nachfolenden" is just as likely to be in a genuine communication nowadays...
