You’ve got to love the language in this garbled offering, submitted by a reader. First the scammer apologises for ” all the inconveniences and inflict that we might have indulge you through“. Not to worry because “the square peg is now in square whole and can be voguish”. Mmmm, yes, if you say so.
Unless you know you have an unpaid contract with a Nigerian company, just delete this email. If you do have an overdue contract, why are you reading this post? You should be dealing directly with the company.
