A variation on this scam is this one below. Note that in the letter are some code numbers to make it look genuine. But how can someone deposit a package to a courier and leave it without being able to give a receiver's address? The contact email address is a free live.com email address instead of an Fedex.com address. Fedex has it's own domain and email addresse's which come with it. IP 41.217.65.4 proxy server, Nigeria
CONTACT FEDEX DELIVERY DEPARTMENT.

Dear Friend,

I have your Bank Draft worth of $3.5million for your overdue payments, due
to the expiry date i deposited the Bank Draft with FedEx Express to
deliver it to you, to avoid another hoax as you were disappointed in the
past.

You are requested to contact the FedEx Express with your address and
telephone numbers so they will deliver the package to your doorstep.

Below is the contact details of FedEx Express Delivery Unit:

Contact Person: Mr. Ben Clement
Email; [email protected]
Tel; +234-806-647-753-6.

Shipment Details
SHIPMENT CODE AWB 33XZS
PACKAGE REGISTERED CODE NO XGT442.
SECURITY CODE SCTC/2001DHX/567/
TRANSACTION CODE 233/CSTC/101/33028/
CERTIFICATE DEPOSIT CODE SCTC/BUN/xxiv/-78/01

Contact FedEx Express today and do not forget to contact them with your
personal information.

Full Name....
Home address.....
Home telephone number...
Mobile phone number......
identity.........
Country..........

For your information i have paid for the VAT & Shipping charges as well as
Insurance fees 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 $150usd to the FedEx Express
Delivery Unit for the Security Keeping Fee of your package as stated in
their privacy terms & condition page. I wanted to pay for the Security
Keeping charges, but they did not accept it considering the facts that all
items & packages registered with them has a time limitation and they
cannot accept payment not knowing when you will be picking up the package
or even respond to them. So they cannot take the risk to have accepted
such payment in case of any possible demurrage.

Make sure you send this needed information to the Director General of
FedEx Express Delivery Unit in person of Mr. Ben Clement.

Regards,
Mr. William Mack Don

Hello Friend,
Good day How are you today? I am writing to inform you that I have Paid the delivery and Insurance premium fee. for your Draft which has been with me for a long time. And I went to the bank to confirm if the draft has expired or getting nearer to expiring date, and Mr. Justin Yayi the Director, Bank of Africa, told me that before the draft will get to you, that it will expire. So I told him to cash the $1.5 Million U.S DOLLARS to cash payment to avoid losing this funds under expiration as I will be out out of the country for a 3 Months Course and I will not come back till ending of November 2010.
However, all the necessary arrangement for delivering the $1.5 Million U.S DOLLARS in cash was made with FeDEX COURIER SERVICE COMPANY here in Cotonou Benin Republic, Mr.Justin Yayi the Director of Bank of Africa Cotonou has package the sum of $1.5 Million USD in cash for you.
Then he also help me to Register the Consignment with FeDEX COURIER SERVICE COMPANY. Infact I thank God very much for all the effort I made, every thing went normal. As for our agreement with the FeDEX COURIER SERVICE COMPANY they promised that your consignment will leave this Country on or before Two days from now, But the Director of the FeDEX COURIER SERVICE COMPANY said that they need your contacts information's to enable them meet up with you immediately, the Diplomat Agents arrived in your Country.
The only money you will send to the FEDEX COURIER SERVICES COMPANY to deliver your Consignment direct to your postal Address in your country is ($195.00 US) One Hundred & NIGHTY Five United States Dollars only being Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far, I would have paid that but they said no because they don't know when you will contact them and in case of demurrage.
Please write a letter of application to the given address below.
Name: Dr Alex Uba
Email: [email protected] )
Please Reconfirm your contact information to enable them locate you immediately they arrived in your country with your BOX .

N.B. The FeDEX COURIER SERVICE COMPANY don't know the contents of the Box. I registered it as a BOX of African TEXTILES. They did not know that the contents was money. this is to avoid them delaying with the BOX. Don't let them know that the content of the box is money, They are waiting for your urgent response.
Regards.
DR.HENRY JOSEPH.
