So you have been paying a lot of charges trying to secure that large, filthy sum of money from Nigeria.
Look no further, someone is looking into the issue.
This is a scam mail that reads like a follow-on to an earlier scam – you were scammed and could not get your money. “Oh we understand that, don’t deal with that earlier guy, deal with me and you will get the money.”
As long as you are scammed once, they would assume that you are gullible enough for them to use any stories to believe that they are trying to help to get hold of that “fake” money. Stop sending money, and stop dealing with these crooks!
The scammer is probably a rich scammer who has ripped off hundreds in the past years and is residing in the UK.
