This is a scam! Do not be fooled by this type of scam or you will lose $400 or more on this particular version of the Nigerian email scam.
Be sure to warn your friends and family about this new version.
Below is a copy of the Nigerian scam email I just received if you want to read it. It’s actually quite funny if you are bright enough to know this is a scam. But unfortunately, many elderly people fall for this scam which is why you need to reach out to your elderly relatives and warn them.
Hello My Dear,
I am Mary Wesley, 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 have paid over $65,000 while in the US, trying to get my payment all to no avail.
So I decided to travel to WASHINGTON D.C with all my compensation documents, And I was directed by the FBI Director to contact Agent Ms Kimberly Mertz who is a representative of the FBI and a member of the COMPENSATION AWARD COMMITTEE in Nigeria,and I contacted her and she explained everything to me. She said whoever is contacting us through emails are fake.
She 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 $15 Million Us Dollars Moreover, Ms Kimberly Mertz, 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 fund, they are only making money out of you. I will
You have to contact her directly on this information below.
COMPENSATION AWARD HOUSE
Name : Kimberly K Mertz
You really have to stop dealing with those people that are contacting you and telling you that your funds 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 Ms Kimberly was just $400 for the paper works, take note of that.
Once again stop contacting those people, I will advise you to contact Ms Kimberly Mertz so that she 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.
