I know that there have been plenty of people that have received this same type of email before. The type where they tell you that you have won butt loads of money and all you have to do is tell them every ounce of private information about yourself that you can.

From:InterPol Special Investigation Agent email@example.comDear Friend
I am officially sending you this e-mail in order for you to be aware of the good news of your funds, please before I proceed, I will like you to keep away this message from any other person around you, because we have decided to conclude this issue with you alone.
March 14th 2010 a meeting was held with the General Director of the Interpol and some other top officials in the United Kingdom concerning the online internet scam, in the conclusion of the meeting, I was ordered by the Interpol to fly down to Africa for special investigation concerning the delay of your payment.
After some little investigation, I notice that your funds is still in the Federal Suspense Account” of CIMB Group Investment (CIMB). Meanwhile those people that you have been dealing with are not from the right office, they are only using you to make money for their own benefit.

Don’t allow anyone to deceive you, your funds is $6,500,000.00 (Six Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) it was written inside the recording files of your funds.
I have taken your funds documents to the CIMB Group Investment (CIMB) in Africa for confirmation and they have been working on the release of your funds, meanwhile, I will need your information like the stated below so that I can know how to update you soon as
everything has been settled.
Upon the receipt of this information, I will email you or call you and give you code on how to communicate with me and I will always keep you updated concerning the progress of the transfer of your $6,500,000.00 (Six Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) once again you are advised to seize all communication with any other office or person to avoid been mislead, and whenever you receive any message from anyone, kindly forward it to me so that i can make a proper investigation on it.
