Scams re-targeting those who have already been victimized

This is a very official and realistic sounding email, intended to gain your trust, but the only thing you can trust about it is that it is a scam.
The email addresses are free ones from mail.com - the United Nations do not use free email addresses, they have their own email 'domain'.
Here are some others used with this scam - all mail.com email addresses:
[email protected]
[email protected]
[email protected]
[email protected]
[email protected]
And of course, there is the fee.
Agreement Fee of $678.50

Any email offering any compensation is a scam. Similar to "if you didn't buy a ticket, you didn't win the lottery" - If you didn't contact the United Nations via their real web site http://www.un.org, then you won't receive an email from them.

To manage this situation which has become an epidemic in some of these countries fund transfer administration; we have jointly agreed that all outstanding beneficiaries should apply for Waiver Grant through a new constituted panel (International Debt Reconciliation Committee) via the desk of Rev.Steven Long.
