This guy wrote as if he knows you for ages and has ‘suffered’ together
with you. He is asking to send you a bank draft of US$1million to your
account if you contact his secretary called Johnson Iveatu.

We decided to investigate a little bit more on this one, since the more recent ones are straightforward mails from Africa.

Although Franklin quoted that he is now in South Korea, the email was actually sent from UK, based on the X-originating IP address, Sometimes certain people may use external proxy to access the internet so as to hide their originating country or location. But this is a fact worth to look at or to be cautious in the dealing.

Secondly, his secretary is using a yahoo.com.au email address, which is based in Australia.

Now this is getting fishy, originating from UK, talks about South Korea, and transacting with an email address in Australia. In real life, this may not be totally impossible, but an unsolicited offer that sounds too good to be true is very fishy indeed.
