Just when you think you have seen everything about the Nigerian email where you receive an email telling you about any of a number of different pretenses under which you are can receive a huge windfall of cash only to learn later, once you are hooked into the scheme that you are required to pay fees and costs that mount up until you end up losing thousands of dollars and get nothing in return, there is a new twist. Below you will find a copy of a Nigerian email I recently received that states with incredible chutzpah that previous emails I had been sent from Nigerian promising riches were phony, but that this email is the only legitimate one to provide me with 1.5 million dollars and all I need to do is pay a small $270 inspection waiver fee. Included with the email I received is a copy of another email purportedly from a woman name Connie Dutton of Silver Springs Florida who recounts in her email about how she had been taken advantage of in the past, but now through this particular program (in reality, scam) she received 1.5 million dollars. This is a great new twist on the old scam, but is just as much a fraud as every other Nigerian email you receive. If you send the money requested all you will succeed in doing is losing money.
Here is a copy of the email and the attached email allegedly from Connie Dutton. By the way, if you Google Connie Dutton, you will find that this scam email has been around for more than a year.

Attn: My Dear,
I am Mrs Connie Dutton, I am a US citizen, 51 years Old. I reside here in Silver Springs Florida. My residential address is as follows. 7008 E Hwy 326 Silver Springs FLorida 34488, United States, am thinking of relocating since I am now rich. I am one of those that took part in the Compensation in Nigeria many years ago and they refused to pay me, I had paid over US$20,000 while in the US, trying to get my payment all to no avail.
So I decided to travel down to Nigeria with all my compensation documents, And I was directed to meet Barrister George Alex, who is the member of COMPENSATION AWARD COMMITTEE, and I contacted him and he explained everything to me. He said whoever is contacting us through emails are fake.
He took me to the paying bank for the claim of my Compensation payment. Right now I am the most happiest woman on earth because I have received my compensation funds of $1,500,000.00 Moreover, Barrister George Alex, showed me the full information of those that are yet to receive their payments and I saw your email address as one of the beneficiaries, that is why I decided to email you to stop dealing with those people, they are not with your fund, they are only making money out of you. I will advise you to contact Barrister George Alex.
You have to contact him directly on this information below.
COMPENSATION AWARD HOUSE
Name : Barrister George Alex(Esq)
You really have to stop dealing with those people that are contacting you and telling you that your fund is with them, it is not in anyway with them, they are only taking advantage of you and they will dry you up until you have nothing.
The only money I paid after I met Barrister George Alex was just US$270 for the paper works, take note of that.
As soon as you contact him he will send you the payment information which you are to use in sending the payment to him in order for him to obtain the document from the court of law there in Nigeria so that your fund can be transfer to you without any delay just the way mine was being transfer to me.
Send him the following details if you know you are ready to have your FUNDS so that as soon as he receive your information he will send to you the payment details for sending him the $270USD that is needed for him to get the document that is needed to make the transfer a successful one and that is that only payment i made to Barrister George Alex and he help me in the transfering of my FUNDS and i most say that you have to countact him so that he will help you the way he help me to Get my FUNDS without any further payment.
Fill Out the information to him if you are ready to get your FUNDS

Once again stop contacting those people, I will advise you to contact Barrister George Alex so that he can help you to Deliver your fund instead of dealing with those liars that will be turning you around asking for different kind of money to complete your transaction.
Thank You and Be Blessed.

If it sounds too good to be true, it generally is and as I always say, “trust me, you can’t trust anyone.” Certainly you should be incredibly skeptical if you get an email from anyone promising you riches for little or no effort or cost on your part, but if you get such an email from Nigeria, you should delete the email immediately. You should always ask yourself, why am I being singled out to receive a huge amount of money? The answer is obvious. The email is just a broadly sent scam.
