Good old Godwin Emefiele,
Actually, Godwin Emefiele is a good old acquaintance, not him, but his countless fakes who always write stupid mails. This example is absurd. The story is just bad.
Rainer Hesse has already appeared several times, as has Robin Hood. This mail is an absolute fake and shows that if Nigeria does not do something against the scammer soon, it will end badly for the country. Of course, the following applies: do not reply, do not pay anything. Do not give out any personal data. The best thing to do is to send the email straight to the digital trash can.
