So this is an example of a 419 scam. This is an email that I got from someone telling me to contact DHL which is a legit shipping company with an email address that is linked to the scammer. This DHL company that you will email is a fraud. They will tell you to wire over some money for taxes and fees. Then they will keep asking you for more and more money until finally you are broke. Do not fall for this. NEVER send any money to someone that is telling you they will give you more money as soon as you do that. It will never happen.
This is to bring to your notice that I have been able to pay the
re-activation fee and the delivery of your ATM Card. I paid it because
the ATM Card worth of $4.8M USD has less than Seven days to expire and
when it expires, the money will lost to the Government treasury
account . With that I decided to help you pay off the money so that
the ATM Card will not expire, because I trust that when you receive
your ATM Card definitely you must pay me back my expenditure and even
compensate me for helping you.
Now i want you to contact DHL Express with your physical address your
prefer the delivery so that they can deliver your Card to your
designated address without any delay. Like i stated earlier, The
delivery charges has been paid but i did not pay their official
keeping fees since they refused. They refused and the reason is that
they do not know when you are going to contact them and the demurr age
might have increased.
They told me that their keeping fee is $58 per day as i made the
deposit yesterday, So you are advised to contact them immediately to
avoid the security keeping charge increase.
Below is their Contact Information's, Contact Person: Mr. Robert
Williams. DHL Express Email: (email@example.com)
Tel:+229 68827435 Contact them Today to avoid increase of their
keeping fees and let me know once you receive your card.
Mrs. Mary Johnson.
