Some Nigerian tried this scam to cheat me out of $250. After I sent a couple of confusing emails to him, he finally gave up. Here's the attempt:
There is this MRS SUSAN JONES .who came to our company last week to place your check on out going delivery, she already paid for the insurance fee and the delivery charges. But she did not pay for the security keeping fee due to the fact that we did not know when you will be contacting us via mail to inform us that we have your check, so we advised her not to pay for the security keeping fee of the courier company so far but we informed her to contact you on time so you will not have to pay more than $250 USD on demurrage and we do not operate COD on a charge like this.
All you need to do right now to get your check delivered to your door step is to go ahead and pay the security keeping fee of the courier company so far.The fee is $250.00 USD only, you are to come up with this fee as to process the delivery of your package.
