If it sounds to good to be true then it is, besides reporting it to yahoo as a scam there is nothing you can do. The e-mail can really only be traced by yahoo if at all because they have the information on their servers. All you can do is block them and report it. They can change their e-mail often so you may still receive them. Just delete them or put them in your junk folder. Just think of it as junk mail like anything else. It is very very very common. If you need further assistance let me know.
Thank you,

Morvai sandorme from Nigeria wanting someone to donate money from her dead husband to charities just needs 300 dollars to release the money to you??? is it all spam

not SPAM, it is a SCAM!

Know as the Nigerian 419 Advance Fee Scam, and is named after the Nigerian penal code 419 which makes the scam illegal in Nigeria.

Take a look here. Some people have lost their life savings falling for this scam. $300 would just be the start of it. Usually they tell you they have to bribe officials and the amount asked for increases, with the promise of all the millions making it all worthwhile.

Contact cadamy ank. They can get their swift code from their bank. In the USA, S.W.I.F.T. is not used very much and anything with Nigeria is suspect of being scams.
