One of the worst spam email scams I've gotten in a while. Almost as bad as the spam email warning me about spam emails selling fake viagra.Greetings!
I am Mr. Scholes. 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 Delivery, West Africa. I travelled out of the country
for a 3Months Course and I will not come back till end of march. What
you have to do now is to contact the FedEx Delivery as soon as possible
to know when they will deliver your package to you because of the
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 your
The only money you will send to the FedEx Delivery to deliver your
Draft direct to your postal Address in your country is ($185.00 US)
Dollars only being Security Keeping Fee of the Delivery Company so far.
Again, don't be deceived by anybody to pay any other money except
$185.00US 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 the FedEx Delivery now for the delivery of your
Draft with this information bellow:
Contact Person: Mr. Philip Wayne
Email Address: email@example.com
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 to avoid any further delay and remember to pay them their
Security Keeping fee of $185.00 US Dollars for their immediate action.
You should also let me know through email as soon as you receive your
