UPDATED RESPONSE FROM STEPHEN FRED RECEIVED ON 12/27/12 (below) — Also, check all headers, because you’ll notice different IP addresses being used with each email he sends.
12/27/12 EMAIL: Dear Friend
We are writing you to inform you that someone came to our office claiming that he is your Next of Kin and wants to claim your ATM CARD which is in our custody, for he said that you just died of a deadly diseases, we from the Finance House keeping your ATM CARD worth US$3.5 MILLION UNITED STATE DOLLAR can’t just release the ATM CARD to him because we should have received a call from a member of your family or you could have stated this to us since you have failed to pay just the sum of US$180 for the delivery and insurance fee. When he said he wanted to claim your ATM CARD despite your inability to respond back to us and that he was willing to pay the sum of $180USD for the delivery and insurance fee, the Board members were so skeptical about this and has asked me to contact you once again to know if you are still alive and to know if he is trying to steal your money from us.
Do get back to us if you are still there so that we will not foolishly handover your ATM CARD to someone else who claims to be your next of Kin. We will be glad to send you your ATM CARD iF you are still there so that we can arrest this person who says he is from your family.
Your response will make a difference and sort this out. This will be best if you are alive and if you are dead , we want who ever that receives this mail , to have a Rest in peace and we are going to have a change of ownership to the next of Kin.
Mr Stephen Fred
