We the UK Special inspection Agents regret to inform you that it will not be possible to regularize / Clear your package on the basis of the contents of the package. This is in view of recent directives of stricter Inspection and reporting standards especially in relation to any funds transfer/Instruments of payment originating from the Middle East, Asia and Africa where even government officials are complicated in money laundry activities.

The patriot act of the US Congress, which has been adopted by the World Bank/IMF and the European Central Bank (ECB) in the global fight against terrorism, stipulates that Banks and financial institutions must verify and authenticate supporting invoices and even the identification of the dispatching unit or officer in transfers of this magnitude.

In compliance to the above, a tax clearance certificate and a clearance certificate clearing your funds against terrorism and drug insinuation issued by the country of origin of This Payment instrument will be required. Therefore we shall require you to present these two certificates/clearances so we can release your payment instrument/ cheque (of One Million Five hundred thousand united states dollars, purported to be lotto winnings).

We must get this clearances submitted to us personally or by fax within 72 Hours from receipt of this mail.

How to identify a Nigerian 419 fraud or Advance Fee Scam email

If you receive an e-mail with many of the following characteristics, you more than likely have received an email that is bogus or seeking to scam or defraud you.

1) A letter or e-mail from someone you never heard of

2) offering you millions of dollars

3) for doing basically nothing, other than accepting or claiming the money

4) originating from a foreign country. (Many of them come from Nigeria or an African country; however, more recently these emails are originating from other parts of the world including China, Russia, Middle East and Europe.)

5) the sender wants you to act urgently

7) there is usually money tied up in some bank account, will or hidden vault. Sometimes, the sender proposes simply to send you a check (which if they actually send to you, is almost certainly forged. Please note that most banks will allow you to deposit a forged check and will credit your account, but many weeks later, the bank will let you know that the check did not clear and will deduct the amount from your account).

8) the sender usually asks you to keep it confidential

9) if asked, the sender will tell you that your name was obtained from the consulate or some other source that you probably never gave your name to.

10) the sender will try to alleviate your skepticism by calling you, showing you official looking documents, or have other associates contact you to vouch to the legitimacy of the proposed endeavor.

11) many emails try to enhance credibility by tying the substance of the email to recent events (e.g. death of a leader as shown in Letter 1); and

12) other common characteristics include lots of misspellings and typos, appeals to God, calling you a friend, referring to you as honest or trustworthy, a reference to a barrister or government official as a partner and use of generic language (e.g. Sir, your country)
