This is either a mistake or an clever attempt to evade anti-spam filters. There is no message body. I am inclined to believe it’s the latter, guessing that filters will look at the body of the message, not the subject line. Either way, the U.S. Homeland Security department doesn’t use email addresses in Italy for official business, or ask fund recipients to confirm their nearest airport.

Delete messages like this, after getting a good chuckle.

Subject: I’m Kirstjen Michele Nielsen, the new homeland secretary of U.S. Department of Homeland security appointed by President Donald Trump. Office Address:3801 Nebraska Ave NW, Washington, DC 20016, United States. I received a report that you have an unclaimed fund of US$5,000,000.00 (Five Million United State Dollar) in the West Africa. I have instructed ECOWAS and the concerned authorities to bring the consignment box containing your total fund to our Head office in Washington DC. The said fund will be here today. Therefore, you are expected to reconfirm your Full Name (as stated on your government issued photo ID), Home Address, Nearest Airport and your Direct Cell Phone # so that arrangement can be made for the delivery of the consignment to your home address.
