But onto this new endeavor:
"I" received an incoherent email purportedly from the UK Ministry of Finance claiming to be offering me compensation for "your lottery payment, Contract, Inheritance, and also for reported SCAMMED VICTIMS." It directed me to send a reply to a department within the South African reserve bank - interestingly, to the same email address from which the email was sent. It then asked me to send my name, my telephone number, my address, and my occupation.
In response, I sent a list of falsified information, much of which was ridiculous.
The lad then asked me to send a scan of my passport. I sent, in response, a corrupted file, resulting in the following two replies:
Get back with scan copy of your passport to proceed. Thanks
And, perhaps most ridiculously of all, the following extremely bizarre forms, preceded by what appeared to be the lad talking to himself:we cannot download your passsport. please resend
And the formsThank you Federal Reserve Bank.

The private email I would like:
Name of your next of kin
