A reader forwarded me this bit of blah, blah, rhubarb, rhubarb – scam, scam – oh and just send us $125 please. If this was a genuine email from FedEx, it would be none of their business to know what is in your parcel. They charge by weight. The contents are none of their business.
This is just a standard advance fee fraud. There is no package – the scammer wants to take money from you by charging you fees – this scammer even tells you how much to send – $125. Ignore him or her.
