A Scam Email with the Subject "Greetings!!!" was received in one of Scamdex's honeypot email accounts on Mon, 14 Jan 2008 12:32:23 -0800 and has been classified as a Generic Scam. The sender was FedEx Courier Service <firstname.lastname@example.org>, although it may have been spoofed.
I have been waiting for you since to contact me for your Confirmable
BankDraft 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 COURIER SERVICE,
Africa, I travelled out of the country for a 3 Months Course and I will
not come back till end of March.
What you have to do now is to contact the FEDEX COURIER SERVICE as
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, Insurance premium and Clearance Certificate Fee of the Cheque
showing that it is not a Drug Money or meant to sponsor Terrorist attack in
The only money you will send to the FEDEX COURIER SERVICE to
your Draft direct to your postal Address in your country is ($180.00 US)
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
$180.00 US Dollars.
I would have paid that but they said no because they don't know when
will contact them and in case of demurrage.You have to contact the FEDEX COURIER
SERVICE now for the delivery of your Draft with this information bellow;
Contact Person: Mr. Albert Benz
Email Address: email@example.com
Finally, make sure that you reconfirm your Postal address() and
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
mail to avoid any further delay and remember to pay them their Security
Keeping fee of $180.00 US Dollars for their immediate action. You should
also let me know through email as soon as you receive your Draft.
