Subject: Greetings

From: "Mrs. Lynn Hagerbrant" <>

This email with the subject "Greetings" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Mon, 26 Jul 2010 07:58:08 -0700 and has been classified as a Generic Scam.

The sender was "Mrs. Lynn Hagerbrant" <>, although it may have been spoofed.

I am Mrs. Lynn Hagerbrant an ageing widow suffering from long time ailment and
I have decided to render assistance to the needy as a part of humanitarian
services but my situation would not permit me.
Hence, two months ago, I got your email from the internet and I deposited a
Cheque in tune of  5,800,000.00 British Pounds with FedEx UK to deliver to
you upon your contact with them. I could not inform you timely because of my
ill health.
I am sorry to inform you that my communication capacity is very low and I
would not be able to communicate with you henceforth, but you are to receive
this money and disburse 50% of it on my behalf to the down trodden in your
location and keep 50% for yourself for work done.
What you have to do now is to contact FedEx UK as soon as possible to know
when they will deliver your package to you because of the expiring date. For
your information, I have paid for the delivering Charge and the General
Insurance Premium Clearance showing that it is a safe fund with good source of
fund history.
The only money you will send to FedEx UK is  255.34 GBP being the Security
Keeping charge on your draft so far. This fee is very minimal but the company
insisted that I should not pay it because they do not know when you will be
contacting them and to avoid demurrage or further cost.
Again, don't be deceived by any of their staffs to pay any other money because
I have already paid for everything, the only money you are to pay to them is
255.34 British Pounds.
Contact Information for the Claim of Your Cheque:
Contact Person: Mr. Cole Simpson
Email Address:
You are to reconfirm the below information to him:
Postal address:
Full Names:
Direct telephone number:
Security Keeping Code of the Cheque: (SCT/0433/UD) you are to present it to
them for verification before delivery.
Let me repeat again, try to contact them as soon as you receive this mail to
avoid any further delay and remember to ask them to provide you with the
method they wish to use in receiving their security keeping charges of Â
255.34 British Pounds for their immediate action.
Thanks for accepting to do this on my behalf.
Yours Faithfully,
Mrs. Lynn Hagerbrant
