I am also willing to support you financially in any language school if you desire to attend one.
All these incentives will be put in place just to encourage you to perform well and be dedicated to the job, as well be kind to my kids. Kindly get back to me if you are interested in this offer or recommend a caring person who's capable for this offer.

Hi Rosa

Welcome to ScamWarners

I will go over this in more detail in a moment but for now, there isn't a great deal you can do besides ingnore any future emails

It is unfortunate that you have snet your personal information but it cant be taken back, it is possible that your information may be used to create a new identity, it is also likely you will be targeted by other scams.

The only thing you can do about it is to be on the lookout for scam emails and ignore them.

I will take a closer look and provide more information if I can

First up
if you could remove your own details from that header
just x them out, they are not needed and if left there may result in even more scam emails

The header points to 80.255.61.29 Nigeria (Tinubu)*
further information on that IP
person: Muyiwa ADELIYI
address: 25 SAKA TINUBU
Victoria Island Lagos Nigeria
phone: +234-805-557-1011
e-mail: ********@yahoo.com
nic-hdl: MA3677-RIPE
mnt-by: AS22351-MNT
changed: *******@Intelsat.com 20040902
source: RIPE

That is quite a popular cafe for scammers as you will see Click Here
The exact same IP comes up in all of these places Click Here

Although that exact email address does not come up in searches, there rae a few hits in here showing other email addresses used, presumably by the same scammer Click Here
You can see other examples of the same email in this search result Click Here

This link will show another example of the same scam with a slightly different email address Click Here

The phone nuber supplied is a UK redirect number, it appears to be a UK number but the person at the other end could be anywhere in the world, one such place is where he lives off the proceeds of his crime Victoria Island Lagos There was one hit on the number which is Here

^^^ They may or may not do that
we will most likely never know
if it was not yours it would have been somebody else's so please dont feel too bad about that
By making these details public you may well save many others from being scammed so lets foucus on the positives. I will continue edits to my first post as I find more
