Wherever we see a deadly combination of Africa, Nigeria, and Iraq in the same email, its a scam.

So far, we have seen most scammers use the title of “Barrister”. Most
people seldom receive an email from a real “Barrister”, because that is
the title of a real lawyer.

Subject: Parcel Alert

I just want to inform you that I have deposited your ATM MASTER CARD of USD

$800.000.00 United state dollars to the TNT Express Delivery Services here in

West Africa, due to I have waited enough to hear from you so that your funds

will be transferred through CENTRAL BANK OF AFRICA (BOA) here, but because of

the late response I now decide to deposit the ATM MASTER CARD with the TNT

Express Delivery services with your previous information as you listed it

that time.

I have paid to them their delivery charges & insurance coverage fee, the only

fee to be paid again is their security safe keeping fee of $150 dollars

only would have paid that but they said no because they don’t know when you

will contact them and in case of demurrage.

I will be traveling to IRAQ to see my boss and I will not come back till next

month,Therefore I will advise you to contact the track n trace shipment

officer with his contact information as listed below for the avoidance of

increase of their security safe keeping fee.

Note that I packaged the ATM MASTER CARD inside a magazine where nobody will

notice the content, I also told the shipment officer Dr Khalid Divya, that it

is ordinary African magazine I want to deliver to my friend abroad to avoid

further delay unless you delay to send their security safe keeping fee. Make

sure you contact him through this Email Address:

Below is the shipment officer contact information including his email address

with the parcel reference number, note that without you indicating your

parcel number as listed below the TNT Express Courier will not listen to you

they will be imagining if you want to steal another persons parcel.

them ok.

Please make sure the information is complete as they promised that once they

receive their security safe keeping fee within 2 to 3 working days the

Once again, the TNT Express Delivery Service do not know the content of the

parcel, I registered it as an African magazine they don’t know it contains

besides I don’t want you to lose your inheritance funds.

sllotten it and enter the pin code for withdrew al, the amount you are to

ask them on how you are to make the payment for the security fee

to them so they can effect immediate delivery on your parcel.
