This scammer starts by addressing me as “My Dear” – clearly he or she has no idea of my name. I am then asked to send a load of personal details including my “driving lance” – presumably the scammer needs this so he/she can make a quick getaway through the traffic!
Who cares – this is a scammer. One who wants your personal details and, having taken your identity, will then start asking for money. Ignore him or her.
This is to inform you that arrangements have been concluded as regards to the shipment of your consignment of funds to your country. I choose to conclude it and make sure it is off already before contacting you. I found out that this consignment has been lying here because of non-payment of shipment fees.
This is why I decided to use my connections as the Shipment officer in charge of the National Security warehouse. (This is where all the abandoned consignments in Nigeria are kept at the orders of the Government of Nigeria.)
The consignment left Lagos Nigeria yesterday night en-route country via Germany/Spain. It is metal box, silver in color with a weight of about 150kg, the box is declared as containing diplomatic /inheritance documents only.
The name of the Courier Company based in Spain is Air Courier International Ltd Call me immediately so that I can give you the phone numbers of the courier company in Spain so that you confirm when the consignment will arrive your country.
All I need from you now is your full details. (!) Your full names (2) Your postal address (3) Your private cell phone and fax number. (4) Your international passport or Drivers lances if you have any. I choose to do this for you because I studied your file and discovered that you have paid a lot of money before abandoning this consignment and I believe you will compensated me well when you receive the consignment.
Note: I know the content of the Box because I could see the amount you are being owned by the Federal Government. This is why I decided to get involved.You must also know that this arrangement do not concern all the people you were dealing with in Nigeria before today as this consignment/Payment has been surrendered to the Government.
Hence my involvement. Waiting for your call and your mails
