From: World Bank Promo <>

This email with the subject "Attn......Winner" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Sat, 23 Aug 2008 18:50:30 -0700 and has been classified as a Generic Scam.

The sender was World Bank Promo <>, although it may have been spoofed.

Congratulations to you as we bring to your notice the results of the World Bank
Promo and your email Address was selected through a computer ballot system
drawn We are happy to inform you that your email won $800.000.00 United States
Dollars. I have been waiting for you since to contact me for your Confirmable
Bank Draft of $800.000.00 United States Dollars, but I did not hear from you
since that time. Then I went and deposited the Draft with FEDEX EXPRESS
DELIVERY, West Africa, I traveled out of the country for a 3 Months Course and
I will not come back till end of November 2008.

What you have to do now is to contact the FEDEX EXPRESS DELIVERY 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 Charges,
Insurance premium and Clearance Certificate Fee of the Cheque showing that it
is not a Drug Money or meant to sponsor Terrorist attack in your Country.
Again, I would have paid for the security keeping fee but they said no because
they don't know when you will contact them and in case of demurrage. You have
to contact the FEDEX EXPRESS INTERNATIONAL with the following information:

First name:
Last Name:

Dispatch Director: Mr. Leedon Cole
Email Address:


You are advice  to contact them as soon as you receive this mail to avoid any
further delay and remember to pay them their Security Keeping fee of $200.00 US
Dollars for their immediate action. You should also let me know through email
as soon as you receive your Draft.

Yours Faithfully,
Mr. John Smith.
