The message didn't come from Nigeria. The scam can be based anywhere:
they have you establish a bank account with, say $10K. Once they have
your bank account number, they can drain it from any third-world country.
The immediate problem is the scam email. This message header had no
features that I could filter on: it was directly addressed, with a
generic subject line.
