    Yeah, if you read it it is obviously not in official language. I would have made it a $200 max 'prize' for the victim, that would not be obvious scam, most would have fallen for it. Happily these scammers are dumb as dirt.

    "DO NOT SEND MONEY TO ANYONE UNTIL YOU READ THIS: The actual fees for shipping your ATM card is $420 but because FedEx have temporarily discontinued the C.O.D which gives you the chance to pay when package is delivered for international shipping We had to sign contract with them for bulk shipping which makes the fees reduce from the actual fee of $420 to $135 nothing more and no hidden fees of any sort!"

    Like anyone was gonna send money. Look at that horrible grammar. "When package delivered". No offense to anyone Asian reading this, but that sounds like someone of Chinese descent typed it out.

    "Governmental Officials" - does FBI don't have proofreaders? :D

    "his Excellency President Good luck Jonathan" - seems like a legit name for a President. :D
