Mr Olu Benson isn't taking a break either. He also seems to be having a bit of an identity crisis. According to his incoming email he is called "Mandy". Do you suppose that's his cross-dressing alter ego? Are there many cross-dressers in Nigeria?
Apparently he has $450k for me. He tried phoning but couldn't get through. Not surprising really since he has no idea who I am and no idea what my phone number is. Nor does he know who you are or what your phone number is. Come to that, he doesn't have $450k to give you either. What he really wants is you to pay him - in the form of advance fees for a cheque that doesn't exist.
Just delete the email and don't reply.
