I think the scammer that wrote this email must have swallowed a rural dictionary. Mrs Trotter tells me I should contact the wonderfully named “Pollard Brock” (If you don’t know what I’m talking about, try looking up those words in a dictionary.
I haven’t seen this scam for a while – it’s just soooooo old fashioned. It’s the one where Mr/Mrs Scammer has deposited your money with a courier and then left the country for a while. It’s an advance fee fraud. It actually asks you for a fee up-front.
Just ignore this scammer. You aren’t expecting $150k, and this scammer certainly isn’t going to send you anything.
Greetings. I have been waiting for you to come down here and pick your Bank Draft of ($150,000.00) Which my boss asked me to mail to you for your compensation as soon as you requested for it, but I did not hear from you since that time. Then I went and deposited the Draft with Fast link Courier/Security Company here in WEST AFRICA to avoid loosing the funds, I will be out of the country for a 6 Months Course and I will not come back till later in the year. Contact the Fast link Courier dispatch officer to deliver your package to you, reconfirm your address to them, I have paid for the delivering charges and insurance fee. The only money you have to send to them is their security keeping fee which is $120.00 Us Dollars to received your package. Dispatch Officer: Mr. Pollard Brock E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org Telephone: +234 704 053 0493 Shipment Code: CPEL/OWN/9876 Parcel Number: EG2272-NIG Also below is the information they need to deliver the funds this is to avoid wrong delivery as I already gave them your delivery address but you have to re- confirm it to them ok.
