a few steps further

If You'll contact "the agent", as I did, You'll receive the next link of the chain.
So, the "Nigerian Bank". (Don't they have their own domain/e-mail account?...)

If You would not send your data in the first letter to "the bankman", then they will send you a bit more strickt letter: "WE WOULDN’T LIKE
TO EXPERIENCE ANY KIND OF DELAY IN THIS TRANSFER BY YOU TO AVOID DISQUALIFYING
AND CLOSING OF YOUR FILE AND RETURNING YOUR PRIZE MONEY TO THE LOTTERY DEPARTMENT
AS UNCLAIMED PRIZE."

One more thing: you won't be able to receive a human word from them. If asking them something, only copy/paste schemes will return....

Folks, do not trust lotteries that you did not take part in.
Noods, NEVER trust official letter written all in UPPER CASE!
