From: "Mr Scott Williams"<>

This email with the subject "I HAVE REGISTERED YOUR CONSIGNMENT WITH FEDEX." was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Tue, 03 Feb 2009 17:22:54 -0500 and has been classified as a Advance Fee Fraud/419 Scam.

The sender was "Mr Scott Williams"<>, although it may have been spoofed.



I have been waiting for you since to contact me for your Confirmable Bank
Draft of $850,000 United States Dollars, but I did not hear from you since for
a couple of weeks now. Then I went to the bank to confirm if the draft has
expired or getting near to the date of expire and Dr.Wilson the Director Bank
of Africa told me that before the draft will get to your hand that it will

So I told him to cash the $850,000 USD UNITED STATES DOLLARS to cash payment
to avoid losing this funds under expiration as I will be out of the country
for a 3 Months Course and I will not come back till
ending of March 2009.

What you have to do now is to contact FEDEX COURIER SERVICES as soon as
possible to know when they will deliver your Consignment to you because of the
expiring date. For your information, I have paid for the delivering Charge,
Insurance premium.

The only money you will send to the FEDEX COURIER SERVICES to deliver your
Consignment direct to your postal Address in your country is ($90.00 US) ninety United States 
Dollars only being Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far.Again, don't be deceived by 
anybody to pay any other
money except $90.00 US Dollars.

I would have paid that but they said no because they don't know when you will
contact them and in case of demurrage. You have to contact FEDEX COURIER

SERVICES now for the delivery of your Draft with this information bellow;

Directors Name:John Ubani
Email Address: (

Finally, make sure that you reconfirm your Postal address and Direct telephone
number to them again to avoid any mistake on the Delivery and ask them to give
you the tracking number to enable you track your package over there and know
when it will get to your address. Let me repeat again,Try to contact them as
soon as you receive this mail and ask them how you will make the security fee
of $90 usd to them to avoid any further delay and remember to pay them their
Security Keeping fee of $90.00 US Dollars for their immediate action.
Note this. The FEDEX COURIER SERVICES don't know the contents of  the Box.
I registered it as a BOX of Africa cloths. They did not know the contents
was money. this is to avoid them delaying with the BOX. Don?t let them
know that box contents is money ok.

Yours Faithfully,
Mr Scott Williams
