Subject: (OFFICIAL NOTICE) IMMEDIATE PAYMENT APPROVAL NOTIFICATION HYELNCOBKU
This one is made to look as though it officially comes from the Nigerian Central Bank from the Boss himself. As with all fraud e-mails this one is sent through a freemail address, so it can’t be come from the Bank itself. And, I am sure that Professor Soludo wouldn’t send it through a private e-mail account.
So it can only be a Scam e-mail right?
