"Re: Intercepted Over Due Fund Transfer!!!" scam

This isn't the first time that we've seen a scam email pretending to be from the UN, but they are often slightly amusing in their pitch. The idea here is that the scammers are targeting people who have already been ripped off with the promise of compensation. Presumably the success rate with this approach makes it worth doing.

Unsurprisingly, the telephone number listed is in Nigeria. Avoid.
