419: Fraudulent FedEx emails

The lads (and lasses) from Lagos are still alive and kicking, or rather, alive and spamming the crap out of everyone. Not that this is news - it's not stopped, they still come in daily, in their droves. The latest I've received arrived a few minutes ago, in the form of a fraudulent FedEx email.

We have been waiting for you to contact us for your Confirmable Package that is registered with us for shipping to your residential location.We had thought that your sender gave you our contact details.It may interest you to know that a letter is also added to your package.

We understand that the content of your package itself is a Bank Draft worth of $450,000.00 USD, FedEx do not ship money in CASH or in CHEQUES but Bank Drafts are shippable.The package is registered with us for mailing by your colleague, and your colleague explained that he is from the U.S.A but he is currently in Asia for a three (3) months Surveying Project as he works with a consultant firm in India, We are sending you this email because your package is been registered on a Special Order.

For your information,the VAT & Shipping charges as well as Insurance fees have been paid by your colleague before your package was registered. Note that the payment that is made on the Insurance, Premium & Clearance Certificates, are to certify that the Bank Draft is not a Drug Affiliated Fund (DAF) neither is it funds to sponsor Terrorism in your country. This will help you avoid any form of query from the Monetary Authority of your country.

However, you will have to pay a sum of $185USD to the FedEx Delivery Department being full payment for the Security Keeping Fee of the FedEx company as stated in our privacy terms & condition page.
