This is a classic reverse-psychology scam. You see, there are so many scammers out there who are trying to cheat you, that I (“Mrs. Farida Waziri” of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission) have decided that your case merits special attention from the Nigerian government. That’s the only way the actual money you are owed can be delivered, free from scammer interference. It’s like a hall of mirrors, no?

My Name is Mrs. Farida Waziri the new Economic and Financial Crimes Commission chairperson in Nigeria.
I understand you are expecting your delayed fund to be transferred to you, but some top government officials and bank partners will not tell you the truth about the where abouts of your fund and all they are doing is to tell you to pay outrageous fees which you refused to come up with.
I have to let you know the truth because I know you have gone far in trying to get this fund and must have paid some amounts of monies to persons you are not supposed to give out a dime to. I will be ready to help you get your fund if you abide to my instructions to enable me help in delivering your fund as the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission principal officer. I strongly know that they will never tell you the truth because they are all criminals.
I have decided with my veto power that you must receive one third of your principle fund which is US$5.5m (Five million five hundred united states dollars) to ascertain really whom I am.
You are advice to email me via my private mailbox at:firstname.lastname@example.org I expect your prompt response.
Mr. Farida Waziri.
