Check this email I received; this is pathetically funny. Crooks using crooks as a hook.
These folks must find a lot of people with only one oar in the water:

[Links elided]

Dear Victim,

We recently arrested a group of West African / Ghana, Benin and Nigerian Internet scam Artists in London and we have reasons to believe you have been one of their numerous victims. A thorough search of the computers arrested with the individuals and their confessions during interrogation has revealed to us that you paid certain sums of money to these fraudsters via Western Union.

These individuals have been wrongfully informing a lot of people via email on the internet that they have huge sums of money to be transferred from a foreign Bank Account. Also, they have confessed to loan scams, the UK National Lottery scam and Euro Millionaire Lottery Scams and have been demanding money from innocent people for purported claims of the said
money.

They operated with a fake Security firms and Bank and courier and a lot of people have fallen victims to them in the past 3 years. One of them was arrested recently when they attempted to defraud an American citizen of $5.2m USD by the London Police and the Interpol working together to break the scam ring. Our Investigation revealed that you paid out some money to these individuals over a period of time. We are happy to inform you that you can now claim back your money as well as your compensation.

We have already initiated proceedings on your behalf with the West African / Nigerian Government to ensure that as a genuine scam victim, you will not only recover your lost money but also you will be compensated for the financial and emotional stress you and your family may have passed through because of the scam.

Our Internal Audit Bureau has estimated that you are eligible to claim a total of $200,000.USD from the Fraud Compensation Committee set up by the West African / Nigerian Government to ensure that properly identified scam victims are paid and adequately compensated from the $3bn allocated compensation loan from the World Bank.

This Fund is directly under the watchful eye of both European Fraud
Investigation Committee/ British Intelligence Unit to avoid
misappropriation or embezzlement of fund. Please respond back to us
immediately to ensure that your details are confirmed as being eligible to receive your compensation within 72 hours of receiving this notice;

All compensation requests are attended to strictly on a first-come
first-serve basis. As soon as I hear from you, I will direct you properly on how to acquire the compensation fund without further ill-treatment.

The funny thing about it is, they don't ask for you to send them any sort of personal information. I suppose they will get that when you call them.

the money and deposited it with FedEx Express Delivery Company to
deliver it to you as a cash payment Fund , this is the only best system
and fastest means to pay you, at this time. You are to contact the FedEx
Express Delivery Company with your delivery details including your
telephone number, so that they will deliver your package (boxed of
money) to your personal address, within 48hours. The FedEx logistic

delivery fee so the only money you have to send to them now is the
security keeping fee of your consignment and it is $380 United States
