I was sent the following message by email yesterday:

Hi Steven Swindells!

Ellis Robert has sent the following message to you:
Hello Seller,

I just mail to confirm if the above named advert placement is still for sale as am really interested in buying it kindly get back to me with your last offer and also send to me its pictures so,that i can know if it really worth the amount you are selling it for me.

Looking forward to hear from you as soon as possible.
Mrs Ellis................

After reading the email a few times i thought there was something strange about it. I looked up the IP address of the scammer and it turned out to be from Nigeria.

The e-mail address of the scammer The interesting thing of this email address is that when it is sent mail, I receive a delivery error saying the email address does not exist.
