Of course, you shouldn’t feel too sorry for the poor little girl… this email is a scam.

Other than the origin – Nigeria – another giveaway is the date : this email is dated the 21st, despite the fact that it is only the 13th today. (I guess this scammer is intending to mail this one out for several days at least).
