I am Mr.Obaro. I am from the fedex delivery in West Africa.I have
been monitoring a parcel here at our office since containing a bank draft of 800,000 United States Dollars ,but I have heard that the owner of the parcel just past away.It is to be collected by a security Answer and I have It.It is "Fredrick".THis is where it involves you.The charge of delivery is 220USD,I want you to pay the delivery fee and send me your address and the parcel will be shipped to your address.Then you will cash the cheque there at the bank and send me the sum of 200.000USD and you keep the 600.00USD as your Share.I have made arrangement showing that it is not a Drug Money or meant to sponsor Terrorist attack in your Country.IF you want to pay for the delivery this is my contact

Its only a name

by Nimmo In reply to Nigerian ???

I don't want to branch off the topic but the Nigerian scam is just a name because the scam originated in Nigeria. I'm not saying it is a scam, all I'm saying is that if you have read examples of this scam you will see a lot of similarities.

This is the first time I've seen this variant

by Tony Hopkinson In reply to Its only a name

I'll admit. The other ones I've seen a lot.

All scams are the same they offer you something for nothing, an appeal to greed.

From this sort of crap, to a a free alarm clock radio if you buy this unnecessary health insurance....

The alarm clock you can fall for, $600,000 for $220, you'd have to be dumber than the hole in a cow's arse.

ever check out 'bustedupcowgirl' and other 'scam the scammer' sites?

by Locrian_Lyric In reply to Anyone want to go halves?

They funny!

They turn the tables on the scammers by letting the mugus THINK they have a live one on the line, then get them to spend THEIR money before springing the trap.
