You got to be kidding me with this e-mail. While we have all heard of Nigerian e-mail scams, this one seems to be targeting people who have unfortunately fell victim to it. As I always say, the scary thing is that it must be working to a certain extent for them to be sending these things out. So as usually, here is the e-mail which you should delete:

How are you today?
The below payment has been awarded to you by the Nigeria Government/World Bank to compensate you on the past experience had with the Nigeria scammers. I write to inform you that we have already sent you $10,000.00 through Western Union as we have been given the mandate to transfer your full compensation payment total sum of Five Hundred Thousand Dollars (USD) $500,000.00 via WesternUnion by the Government. I have on a good authority email you the MTCN and sender’s details to enable you pick up the first $10,000.00,USD and confirm receipt to us so as to enable us wire the next USD10,000.00 by tomorrow and subsequent ones since we can only send USD10,000.00 a day.
Please pick up this information and get to any western union in your country to pick up the $10,000.00 and email the Western Union outlets in charge of the payment so that they could send you another payment tomorrow.
