I love how these scammers send out emails pretending to be law enforcement and saying that you are owed this money. Then when you contact them they tell you to send in a "fee" to get your money. What you are really doing is just sending them money and you will never receive anything. This original email had a lot more spaces in it but I got rid of them to make this a shorter body.

Fake FedEx Email

This is a screenshot of an email I received from a scammer pretending to be FedEx. This is bogus and if you click on the Get Shipment Label link it tries to take you to a website called daily-shop-coupon.com. The link doesn't seem to be working.

Contact DHL Courier Company (419 Scam)

This is an example of a 419 scam. You are told that you are about to receive millions and to contact someone. The smart ones will not ask for any money upfront. When you contact this person and when they feel that they have gained your trust then they will ask for a fee to receive your money. One excuse after the other will come up and they will try to get you to send more and more money. You will never see any money. They will just see yours going to them.

This is an example of a 419 scam email. This involves a person making up some story about you getting all kinds of money. Then the scammer will ask you to pay a fee first. This can be anywhere from $100-$20,000+. Whatever they can take you for they will. This one says $95 but the scammers will try to take you for much more by making up stories about you getting even more money as long as you pay a bigger fee. You will never see this large sum of money they are promising no matter how much you pay them.

Dear Beneficiary,


This message is from U.S. Customs and Border Patrol/ Monitoring Unit. I am pleased to inform you that your ATM Card worth Ten Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars (US$10.5m) sent from Nigeria as part of your overdue payment/funds was returned to our office last week from Atlanta, Georgia where it was held due to one unavailable document. According to information reaching us, the ATM Card was returned due to your failure to pay the necessary charges required by the delivery company to enable it pass through the security agency.

However, after due investigation was made,  we noticed that your ATM Card was stopped and delay unnecessarily. Georgia office told us that your ATM Card has no INTERNATIONAL DELIVERY PERMIT, that was why you are told to pay sum amount of money which you did not pay. But after further investigation, it was very clear that your ATM Card has the INTERNATIONAL DELIVERY PERMIT (IDP) attached to it therefore you are no longer required to pay the money you were asked to pay. Now the only money you are required to pay is $95 only billed for CUSTOMS AND BORDER CLEARANCE CERTIFICATE to clear your file and receive your ATM Card devoid further hindrance. Note that they will process the NIGERIA CUSTOMS AND BORDER CLEARANCE CERTIFICATE and send it to us as soon as you send the money to them.

Get back to me with your full name, preferred delivery address and direct/cell phone number then I will direct you where to send the $95 so that your ATM Card will be delivered to your preferred address without any delay. If you're still have interest in receiving your ATM Card, kindly get back to me.

You can also contact me

United States Marine Corps- 419 Scam

Dear Associate,

How are you doing my friend, great I guess! Now I know this mail will definitely come to you as a huge surprise, but please kindly take your time to go through it carefully as the decision you make will probably go a long way to determine my future and continued existence. First, let me introduce myself. I am Capt. David Michael, assigned to 2nd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, 3rd Marine Division, 3rd Marine Expeditionary Force in Syria. I am desperately in need of assistance and I have summoned up courage to contact you. I am presently in Syria and I found your contact particulars in an address journal. I am seeking your assistance to evacuate the sum of $10,570,000 (Ten million Five Hundred and Seventy Thousand USD) to the States or any safe country; as far as I can be assured that it will be safe in your care until I complete my service here. This is no stolen money and there are no dangers involved.

SOURCE OF MONEY: Some money in various currencies was discovered and concealed in barrels with piles of weapons and ammunition at a location near one of President Assad’s old Presidential Palaces during a rescue operation and it was agreed by all party present that the money be shared amongst us. This might appear as an illegal thing to do but I tell you what? No compensation can make up for the risks we have taken with our lives in this hellhole. The above figure was given to me as my share and to conceal this kind of money became a problem for me, so with the help of a German contact working with the UN here (his office enjoys some immunity) I was able to get the package out to a safe location entirely out of trouble spot. He does not know the real contents of the package as he believes that it belongs to an American who died in an air raid, before giving up trusted me to hand over the package to his close relative. I have now found a secured way of getting the package out!
of Syria for you to pick up.

I do not know for how long I will remain here, as I have been lucky to survive two suicide bomb attacks by Pure Divine intervention. This and other reasons put into consideration have prompted me to reach out for help. If it might be of interest to you then Endeavor to contact me and we would work out the necessary formalities but I pray that you are discreet about this mutually benefiting relationship.
