FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA MINISTRY OF FINANCE.

Our Ref: NNC/MM/04/01
Your Ref: ..............................


YOUR CERTIFIED BANK DRAFT OF USD1.5 MILLION

ATTENTION: BENEFICIARY,

I am FBI AGENT BRIAN WALKERS from the United States of America, sent to Nigeria to take care of the compensation fund by the newly elected President of Nigeria. His excellency President Goodluck E. Jonathan.

The newly elected president met with the FBI and the UN, to bring the initiative of compensation, which was drawn to assigning an FBI Agent that will travel down to Nigeria to make sure no innocent citizens of any country in every part of the world is being swindled through this act.

The compensation is to be made by the Federal Government of Nigeria and some other bodies like the Nigeria National Petroleum Co-operation (NNPC), Dagote Group of Companies (DGC), Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) and the Federal Ministry of Finance, due to the scam the citizens of Nigeria has done on the internet.

The selection of the people to be compensated was made randomly via internet, so if you receive this mail that means you have been selected among the lucky ones to receive the sum of ONE MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATE DOLLARS (USD1.5 MILLION).

Note that all necessary documentation to make the withdrawal of the fund legal and free from any breach of the law has been made by the Federal Government of Nigeria and the FBI, all you have to do now is to contact me with the following information for the claim of your fund.

YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
YOUR FULL NAME:
YOUR POSTAL ADDRESS:
YOUR DIRECT PHONE NUMBER:
YOUR SEX:
AGE:
MARITAL STATUS:
YOUR OCCUPATION:
YOUR COUNTRY:

I will advise you make sure your fund gets to you through the normal process to avoid any problem in future, so please you have to abide to all information as directed.

Thanks,

FBI AGENT BRIAN WALKERS.

Lol, I think I may have received that same scam letter myself, plus a couple of other variations on the FBI scheme. The Amazon scheme seems to be pretty prevalent as well, I've received several lately myself. What amazes me is that after hearing so much about these kind of scams people will still fall for them. There truly is a sucker born every minute I guess.
