Fake Email Sweepstakes Promotion from ATM Corporate VISA Card, Nigeria

Do these scammers from Nigeria never learn?? Unfortunately for its country, just the word Nigeria in an email or any correspondence raises a RED FLAG and alarm!! It's a surprise to see an email scam such as this still circulating on the internet. AND HOW it can possibly still arrive in our mailbox, not straight into the junk/spam folder?! Note the grammatical errors and glaring misspellings all over the email. How can one believe this for a second?
