Mrs. Rosemary Campbell Trunk Box Scam

I have received a large number of scam emails, mostly telling me I've won lotteries worth double digit millions since creating the email address of

Funny thing is I would think that with that sort of email account I wouldn't receive many emails involving scams.

But I did and I do. I will give you more information as promised on a prior job scam soon.

Here's one of those Nigerian scams from a Mrs. Rosemary Campbell:

Customers Service Hours--Monday to Saturday:
Office Hours Monday to Saturday:

Greetings !!!

We have been waiting for you to contact me for your Trunk Box worth $1,650,000.00 (One Million, Six Hundred and Fifty Thousand United States Dollars), being compensation fund for 150 scam victims, but I did not hear from you all this while.

I have deposited the Trunk Box with FEDEX COURIER SERVICE, West Africa, I traveled out of the country for a 3 Months Course and I will not be back until
completion of my 3 months course. What you have to do now is to contact the U P S COURIER SERVICE immediately to know when they will deliver your
consignment to you because of the expiring date.

For your information, I have paid for the delivery Charge, Insurance premium and Clearance Certificate Fee of the consignment showing that it is not a Drug Money or meant to sponsor Terrorism attack in your Country. The only money you will send to the U P SCOURIER SERVICE to deliver your Trunk Box direct to your
postal Address in your country is US$250 only being Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far. Again, don't be deceived by anybody to pay any other
money except US$250.

I would have paid that but they refused, because they don't know when you will contact them and in case of demurrage. You have to contact the U P S COURIER
SERVICE now for the delivery of your Trunk Box with this information below:

Email Address:

Reconfirm the below information to the agent:
Full Name;........
Home Address;........

Let me repeat again, try to contact them immediately you receive this mail to avoid any further delay and remember to pay the Security Keeping fee of US$250
for their immediate action. You should also let me know through email as soon as you receive your consignment. Below is an attached copy of your trunk box.

Yours Faithfully,
Mrs. Rosemary Campbell

Just heard from Castlerock. Broken English, pie in the sky promises,the whole nine yards. Smelled fishy from the start. Whenever I get one like this I Google it anf ad the word "scam" in my subject reques. Lo and behold I foiund this site. They are a real joke so I think I'm going to have some fun with them and tell them that I want thwm to meet my partners who can strengthen the organization. Those people will be some kind of authority. Let's see how far they go. REMEMBER! THEY ARE A SCAM!!! I'm doing this to have some fun while I read legitimate responses to job requests.
Maybe they can send me some money to set up my new office. hahahahahaha.

I got the identical email and received the "necessary forms" upon request. Upon further investigation, they ARE NOT members of FINRA and neither the State of Ill. or Commonwealth of VA has any record of this business. It is a scam--so stay far away and DO NOT give them your personal info.
