Scam Money Transfers
Example -
OFFICE OF THE SENATE HOUSE, FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA , SENATOR DAVID MARK or DR BABA GENA

Did you receive an email from a "SENATOR DAVID MARK or DR BABA GENA" from "OFFICE OF THE SENATE HOUSE, FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA " who says:

"WE, THE ENTIRE MEMBERS OF THE FEDERAL HOUSE OF SENATE, ON BEHALF OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIAN GOVERNMENT, UNDER THE AUSPICES OF THE CIVILIAN HEAD OF STATE, PRESIDENT UMARU MUSA YAR'ADUA AND THE GOVERNOR OF CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA , PROF CHARLES SOLUDO HELD A MEETING LAST WEEK CONCERNING PAYMENT , BOTH FOREIGN AND LOCAL CONTRACTORS AND SOME INHERITANCE FUNDS. "?

Isn't it great that OFFICE OF THE SENATE HOUSE, FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA wants to compensate you? And to think, we thoughtOFFICE OF THE SENATE HOUSE, FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA was poor, but they have money to give away!

Of course, it is a scam! And although "SENATOR DAVID MARK or DR BABA GENA" says you are being compensated, ultimately, there will be "courier fees" or security fees or something that will require them to send you a check (which will be counterfeit), have you deposit it in your bank, then Western Union money back to them.

If you would like a step by step explanation of how this type of "Advance Fee Fraud" works, click here!

Notice some of the other obvious signs that this is a scam are poor spelling , use of free Yahoo/Hotmail/etc email accounts, proposals that make no sense, etc.:
