International Monetary Fund – Be Notified. (ATM Card Scam)

Nigerian scam…International Monetary Fund scam…it just boils down to a scam, period.  Here are the red flags:

#1:  From and reply to email addresses don’t match.
#2:  Mention of World Bank and United Nations (generally a scam indicator).
#3:  Request for irrelevant personal info like age and occupation.  ~BD

COMPENSATIONAL SETTLEMENT OF ESCROW ACCOUNTS.  (Why are you yelling at me by capitalizing this?  Jeez.)
 It is a pleasure to write you that we have reconciled with our logistic department on the reimbursement of some funds spent by you during the cause of your inadequate dealings with some imposters who claim to be staff in banks and other regional payment centers. Our reconciliation teams with the prospectus instrument of the United Nations after freezing suspected imposters account. This support was fully effective with the help of World Bank after a summit meeting in Madrid, on the financial analysis on financial stability issues fluctuating their economy with the international global standard.
After gathering of this sum, our logistic department gave us a list of customers to be paid whom were victims to this imposters due to unawareness (due to unawareness?  Really?  Great grasp of the English language, you moron). And mode of payment was as well specified for proper conducts and financial regulations to kick against criminality (I love this one…kick against criminality.  What a phrase.) during process of payment. We have arranged your payment through our swift card centers (an ATM Card), which is the latest instruction from International Monetary Fund Reconciliation Office.
 The card center will send you an ATM Debit card which you will use to withdraw your money in any ATM Center/Machine, Banks and Union Pay Credit outlets in the world, You are hereby selected as an honor for this payment approval, which you are to acknowledge the receipt of this mail in returning the required below to the Logistic Department by email listed below.
 Office of Reconciliation and Logistics Vaults,
International Monetary Fund (IMF),
Contact Manager: Mr. Obaro Edwin
 1. Full Name
2. Phone and Fax Number
3. Your age and Current Occupation (Completely irrelevant information…why are they asking for this?  Simple…so they can scam me.)
4. Contact Address where you want your ATM Card to be delivered to (P.O Box Not Acceptable)
 For your information, you have to stop any further communication with any other person (s) or office (s) to avoid any hitches in receiving your payment. Because of Impostors, we hereby issued you our code of conduct, which is (ATM-7759) so you have to indicate this code when contacting the Card Center by using it as your subject.
 Kindly be informed that recipients shall be liable to all cost arising for the delivery of the donation parcel. This is due to Legal law protecting all donation funds misappropriation.  (Wow.  This idiot has really mastered English…NOT.)
 Yours in Service,
Mr. Robert Ferguson
