419 Scam Example: "GRANDITE FINANCIAL HOLDINGS / ADAMS STEWART"

"GRANDITE FINANCIAL HOLDINGS / ADAMS STEWART / Vera Stephens" is a fake lottery scam run by a (most likely Nigerian) gang in the UK and in Spain (phone: 349-1252-1449). They use free webmail accounts and mobile phones to communicate with their victims. The supposed lottery winners are asked to send US$ 650 by Western Union (WU) to a person in Manchester, UK who uses a Nigerian name (postal addresses are meaningless in WU transfers, this is likely to be fake):

ADESUWA OBAKPOLOR
PLOT-514 ST PETERS STREET
MANCHESTER M60 2LA
UNITED KINGDOM
