FAKE Western Union Money Transfer Notice From Eco-Bank Nigeria LTD.

Hate it when they create an ALL CAPS LOCK message to make the note sound urgent or important!! Well, it's RUDE! Why should we even believe any email coming from Nigeria anyway? Yet, they still keep pouring hoping for that one poor soul to heed and respond to their email... BEWARE!! BE AWARE! (and we're not being rude... we're simply mad at them!)
