You know that you aren’t expecting an ATM card with $2.5m from someone in Nigeria!
I can’t work out how this scammer has managed to make the link in this email work. It appears to take you to the real ups website, and you appear to get a real answer when you enter the tracking number. I might have to email ups and ask them if they know what the scammer did. It’s possible they actually booked a real parcel into the system to obtain a real tracking number.
Whatever the scammer has done – it’s still a scam. If you make the mistake of giving the scammer your real address details you will find yourself on the receiving end of a demand for money for delivery. Ignore this scammer.
