This e-mail appears to come from FedEx's corporate address itself. Many fraud artists know how to "spoof" an e-mail address.

Subject You Have A Package: Contact FedEx!
Date Thu, August 7, 2008 6:00 am
To unlisted-recipients:;

I have been waiting for you since to contact me for your Confirmable Bank
Draft of $800.000.00 United States Dollars,but I did not hear from you since
that time. Then I went and deposited the Draft with FedEx COURIER
SERVICE,West Africa,I travelled out of the country for a 3 Months Course and
I will not come back till end of September. What you have to do now is to
contact the FedEx COURIER SERVICE as soon as possible to know when they will
deliver your package to you because of the expiring date. For your
information, I have paid for the delivering Charge, Insurance premium and
Clearance Certificate Fee of the Cheque showing that it is not a Drug Money
or meant to sponsor Terrorist attack in your Country.

The only money you will send to the FedEx COURIER SERVICE to deliver your
Draft direct to your postal Address in your country is ($180.00 USD) only
being Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far. Again, don't be
deceived by anybody to pay any other money except $180.00 USD Dollars. I
would have paid that but they said no because they don't know when you
willcontact them and in case of demurrage. You have to contact the FedEx
COURIER SERVICE now for the delivery of your Draft with this information

Contact Person: Mr. Benny Blunt
Email Address:[email protected]
Telephone: +2348057547555.

Finally, make sure that you reconfirm your Postal address; Direct telephone
number; Do send it to them again to avoid any mistake on the Delivery and
ask them to give you the tracking number to enable you track your package
over there and know when it will get to your address. Let me repeat again,
try to contact them as soon as you receive this mail to avoid any further
delay and remember to pay them their Security Keeping fee of $180.00 US
Dollars for their immediate action. You should also let me know through
email as soon as you receive your Draft.

Yours Faithfully,
Mrs. Virgil Storrs
