you must have had contact with a scammer and he passed your email address to all of his buddies !!!!

While ECOWAS is a valid acronym, in this case as is in most cases, it is being abused by the scammer.

No one ever gives money away to strangers, in fact this money doesn't even exist. The scammer will just ask you to pay fee after fee by western union ( or another wire transfer service) in order to get your hands on the fake money. its a losing proposition for you and only you.
