Godwin's Bank

Postby AlphaCentauri » Mon Jan 19, 2015 4:02 pm

I got a 419 spam from
MR.GODWIN I. EMEFIELE,
EXECUTIVE GOVERNOR, CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA (CBN).


Does anyone know if "Godwin" is/has been a common name in Nigeria? Or did this spammer decide all by himself that it must be a prestigious name, because everyone on the internet keeps mentioning the guy's law?

(The real) Mr. Godwin I. Emefiele is actually a distinguished Nigerian banker who studied at the University of Pennsylvania - The Wharton School. And of course, 419 is the nick-name of a Nigerian law. But as Adolf Hitler would have said, your spammer was a Schei├čekopf.
