The compensation for past efforts scam can be sent out as a mass e-mail in the hope that some unscruplous person will play along and try to cash in despite having never heard of this 'proposal' until now. Or, alternatively, it is selectively sent out to somebody who a scammer has previously been in contact with who did not part with any money or who stopped paying out.

The scammer will claim that they managed to get hold of the funds that you failed to get released with help from another business partner. However now the money has been released (it hasn't of course there was never any money and there still isn't) he would like to compensate you for your past efforts. To release the non existent money though you have to (of course) pay advance fees.
