It’s always nice to get mail from someone important, like the Senate President. Or even the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria. And when they have money for you it’s even better! For some reason they’re using an email address in Hong Kong, though … hmmm. What could that mean. But don’t worry, because your lawyer has been on the case already. You did ask your lawyer to call them, didn’t you, because if you didn’t someone has been trying to scam you (say the scammers). Confused yet? Well, if you just call them they can straighten it out for you (and get you on the hook for more scamming to come).
