Do you really think that the UN, if they were going to send you half a million dollars would start their email by saying “how are you today?”. Of course they wouldn’t. In fact this idiot really ought to get a job – because he’s clearly no good as a scammer.
He even thinks that tell you to contact his agent in Nigeria is a good idea. Fail. You know very well that you aren’t expecting compensation from the UN for anything. This is a scammer who wants to take your money to pay his “fees”. Ignore him.
