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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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:
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:
Contact Agent: PASTOR GOOD LUCK
Email Address: email@example.com
Reconfirm the below information to the agent:
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.
