They have paid "almost 22 victims"?
So they've only paid 21 and half a victim? Or 21 and two thirds of a victim?

Sometimes you've just got to wonder about the logic of the scammer who is composing this trash.

Other red flags about this type of letter:
  • They don't address you personally.
  • No one signs it by name.. though often they do, along with a fancy title. This one just comes from "management"
  • You're entitled to $3m apparently. You might have "only" lost $10,000 but hey, have $3 million on us! I doubt that any real compensation scheme would offer more than you can prove you lost, let alone such a huge figure.
  • Bad spelling/grammer. Now granted they claim to be in Nigeria and so it could be their second language and all that, but the UN can afford software with a spellchecker (hey, they have $3m to give to you!) and I'm pretty sure they'd train their staff to use it.

Despicably the scammers feed off the media. It isn't so much the media's fault, though they could do more to highlight that scammers will cynically exploit the news and established company names to steal money.

It is taken for granted that when any world disaster, plane crash or tragedy occurs a new wave of scam mail will soon follow. When there was a disaster in Nigeria caused by a petrol explosion and fire, very quickly scam mails were received showing graphic pictures of burns victims. It is quite clear that they will steal from anyone and abuse any helpless victim in their criminal pursuit.

hey
