This is an interesting story for a 419 scam. It started with a US citizen claiming that she has paid $20,000 but has not received the $1.5million as promised, and had to travel Nigeria to meet the “Barrister” who brought her to the bank to claim from some “Compensation Award Committee”. For some reason, she saw your email and would like to transfer the $1.5million to you instead.
If you win $1.5million, would you give the money to a total stranger for no reason? Don’t fall for this scam.
All names used in this email is fake and this is a scam. The email was sent by “Connie” using a fake Taiwanese EDU email address with reply to Reply-To: firstname.lastname@example.org
It is most interesting to note that the email was delivered through Korea via IP 126.96.36.199, but originated from 188.8.131.52
This data looks like a spam server.

Subject: STOP CONTACTING THOSE PEOPLE
Attn: My Dear,
I am Mrs Connie Dutton, I am a US citizen, 51 years Old. I reside here in Silver Springs Florida. My residential address is as follows. 7008 E Hwy 326 Silver Springs FLorida 34488, United States, am thinking of relocating since I am now rich. I am one of those that took part in the Compensation in Nigeria many years ago and they refused to pay me, I had paid over US$20,000 while in the US, trying to get my payment all to no avail.
So I decided to travel down to Nigeria with all my compensation documents, And I was directed to meet Barrister George Alex, who is the member of COMPENSATION AWARD COMMITTEE, and I contacted him and he explained everything to me. He said whoever is contacting us through emails are fake.
He took me to the paying bank for the claim of my Compensation payment. Right now I am the most happiest woman on earth because I have received my compensation funds of $1,500,000.00 Moreover, Barrister George Alex, showed me the full information of those that are yet to receive their payments and I saw your email address as one of the beneficiaries, that is why I decided to email you to stop dealing with those people, they are not with your fund, they are only making money out of you. I will advise you to contact Barrister George Alex.
You have to contact him directly on this information below.
COMPENSATION AWARD HOUSE
Name : Barrister George Alex(Esq)
You really have to stop dealing with those people that are contacting you and telling you that your fund is with them, it is not in anyway with them, they are only taking advantage of you and they will dry you up until you have nothing.
The only money I paid after I met Barrister George Alex was just US$270 for the paper works, take note of that.
As soon as you contact him he will send you the payment information which you are to use in sending the payment to him in order for him to obtain the document from the court of law there in Nigeria so that your fund can be transfer to you without any delay just the way mine was being transfer to me.
Send him the following details if you know you are ready to have your FUNDS so that as soon as he receive your information he will send to you the payment details for sending him the $270USD that is needed for him to get the document that is needed to make the transfer a successful one and that is that only payment i made to Barrister George Alex and he help me in the transfering of my FUNDS and i most say that you have to countact him so that he will help you the way he help me to Get my FUNDS without any further payment.
Fill Out the information to him if you are ready to get your FUNDS
