Terence P. McCulley – Office of the Ambassador (Nigerian Scam)

I had to open this one on my phone, because it came with a .rtf attachment.  Never, ever open spam emails with attachments.  Usually they are harmless, but they can also contain viruses.  I have a non-windows operating system on my phone, so it’s safe to open there for me.  The attachment contained the letter, below.  Here’s how we can tell it’s a scam:

#1:  From and reply to emails don’t match.
#2:  It’s supposedly from the Nigerian ambassador.  Remember…most scams originate in Nigeria.
#3:  Request for $120 via Western Union to release my mysterious funds (which really don’t exist).
#4:  Use of all caps, and poor mastery of the English language.  ~BD
