A typical, stupid 419 scammer. The e-mail is about some phony inheritance fund, so why on earth do you want to put your name in the subject line? What's the use? Perhaps a 419 scammer with a huge ego? No this is common practice among 419 scammers, they love to do strange, crazy and idiotic things like this.
Hey Chike, didn't your English teacher tell you to refrain from starting each sentence with the same words. You are starting to sound like a broken record player.
...next of kin of the ceasedsince you have the same last name...
occupantsof? ceasedsince? Poor Chike's space bar isn't working that well anymore. Can anyone donate a keyboard to this poor fool, you have his number, so please give him a call. (This is just a joke so don't take it seriously. Remember rule number one: Never contact a 419 scammer!)
You supposedly found your victim on the Internet, but you still fail to mention your victim's name and last name. What happens if your last name is not Manzoor?
Do you get unofficial working days too?
The whole bloody deal is illegal, so how do you plan on achieving this? The best of all, when a victim decides to bail out of the deal, the scammer often threatens the victim with lawsuits and the police. The scammer is only bluffing in most cases, because the last thing he wants is the police on his neck. He is simply bullying the victim back into the deal by waging some psychological warfare.
This is the first time we've seen a 419 scammer using hash buster text in his initial e-mail. +234 is the country code for Nigeria and the IP address 18.104.22.168 resolves to Nigeria, so this Nigerian 419 scammer is a bit more advanced than the normal bunch of 419 swindlers.
