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
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

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