Scam ATM Card Payment Money Transfers
Example -
Major. Gene A.A. Adele
This is to officially inform you that we have verified your contract/inheritance file and found out that why you have not received your payment is because you have not fulfilled the obligations given to you in respect of your contract/inheritance payment

Have you received an email from "Major. Gene A.A. Adele", claiming  "This is to officially inform you that we have verified your contract/inheritance file and found out that why you have not received your payment is because you have not fulfilled the obligations given to you in respect of your contract/inheritance payment" and Nigeria owes you money from a "contract/inheritance payment file", whatever that may be, and he will send you the money on an ATM card, if you contact "eco_banknigoffices211@yahoo.com"?  "Major. Gene A.A. Adele" is a highly educated and highly ranking lawyer or government official who apparently can't spell and feels the odd need to randomly capitalize some WORDS (like that). If this doesn't immediately strike you as a scam, then allow us to point out the inconsistencies and how the scam works.

It's a mystery who the dead guy is or why he named you as a beneficiary or what the "contract" was, but you better reply pretty quickly or risk losing millions from the "contract/inheritance payment file".  Also notice that the "lawyer" is writing to you from a free email account (Yahoo, Hotmail, etc.); in fact, they typically use more than one different free email accounts.

Of course, even if what is presented in the email were true; you would be committing several felonies, including fraud.
