This is perhaps an interesting variant of the 419 scam (advance fee scam). If the recipient is getting this mail for the first time, he would likely be asking “wtf are you talking about?” The scammer expects that people would believe and be willing to pay US$96 for an ATM card to withdraw that “money”.

If anyone needs further confirmation… we simply ask this question: Have you ever seen a Bank that uses free email account such as Yahoo or Hotmail to communicate official matters?

Good day,

 

I have been waiting for you since to come down here and pick your Bank Draft
but did not heard from you since that time then I went and deposited the Draft
with Apex Bank Plc here in Benin Republic, because I  travelled to Japan
to see my boss and will not come back till next month end. I have arranged with
them to make your payment to you with their new ATM MASTER CARD which you can
use to withdraw your money in any ATM ACHINE around the globe. You have to
contact the  Apex Bank Plc with your full contact informations such as
follows.

1. FULL NAME

2. ADDRESS WERE YOU WANT THEM TO SEND THE ATM CARD

3 PHONE AND FAX NUMBER

4. YOUR AGE AND CURRENT OCCUPATION

5. ATTACH COPY OF YOUR IDENTIFICATION

 

However, Kindly contact the below person who is in position to release yourATM
CARD.

REV DR.MAXWELL OKOH DIRECTOR,

ATM PAYMENT DEPARTMENT APEX BANK

I have paid for the processing and delivery charges.The only Money that your

Affidevit Of Onwership from the Federal High Court Of  Benin Republic. Try
to contact them as soon as possible to quicken the processing of your ATM 
card before your draft gets Expired . Let me  know as soon as you receive
