Congrats on figuring out this is a scam.
This emails posted read like the second part of a trunkbox scam. The first part involves making the victim believe that there is a trunkbox full of money hidden with a security company. The second part is making you pay to have it released and shipped to you.
There is no third part. You'd just keep on paying each new fee.

Both the emails there are brand new, so thanks for posting them as they will now be visible on google. Could you please also post the first email you received about this whole deal? Presumably from Sandra Marcy, but possibly from someone else (Scammers like to move you from email address to email address as it adds legitimacy and means you won't notice if an old one gets shut down.)

Just a couple of additional notes... Anything that ends with @diplomats.com is a free email address from mail.com There are several extensions available, and the scammers sure love to use them. In this day and age a real company wouldn't use a free email addy.

As to how the scammer got your address--some scammers will harvest addresses off the net (for example, they might be taken if you signed any online guestbooks), others may trade addresses or buy or steal addresses from the same lists spammers use (which may come a variety of places -- examples include online retailers/sweepstakes/offers companies that sell mailing lists, simple dictionary attacks in which a spammer tries all kinds of different names and/or terms to see which ones lead to real emails, or address books from other people's hacked or phished email accounts.)

Most certainly a scammer, I will do some more research and see if I can convince the scammer to cough up any details, thanks to your information there may well be some people not scammed

I will also point out that the same scammer is mentioned here viewtopic.php?f=13&t=2331

Still looking for more information

And more found here

Hi ,
I wouldnt know what you want in a relationship. But i guess the most important thing is being honest with eachother. Though i feel reluctant talking about myself and my current situation to you as i dont know how you'll feel.But i guess its important you know all about me and the situation i am in so that we'll know if we can go further.I've had loads of bad experiences in my past relationships and i wouldnt want to fall into the same problem anymore.I will like you to give me your words that you really love me and that you want to make a new life with me,cos i have been used before and i wouldnt want to be played on again.I am telling you all this, then you can decide if you still want to meet me or not, so that we will not waste each other's time, when you get this mail,kindly give me a response to let me know if you are still interested or not.
I never grew up to know my mum as she died immediately after my birth. I lost my dad on 9/11 in New York, i'm the only daughter of my folks.I grew up in Paris, My ex-boyfriend,David Gareth used me alot and treated me so badly. He absconded with my dad's money which was kept with me after a completion of a contract in EAST UK,When my boy friend got absconded with the undisclosed sum of US dollars, this brought the first brokeup between me and my dad before is death,because he thought we had the deal together, but not knowing that i'm innocent about this. So my dad has been harsh and tough on me about this.
After all these happened to me and caused by my Ex boyfriend, I joined a dating site (http://www.couple.com) where I met an African guy online here who promised heaven and earth that he wants to marry me and make me happy in life; "I never knew I was going from Fry-pan to Fire". The African man told me of an investment opportunity in Africa and he convinced me to come along with loads of money when coming down. On getting here, all his intention was to take away the money from me, play me and leave me on my own.
I came from the United States with all the money I've gotten from my Dad's business and contracts renumeration. Because the african guy told me of an idea to invest in West African sculptures here. When I got here, he made all possible means to get the money from me and get away with my money.When I noticed this, I took the money and my travelling boxes and deposited it with a Security/Insurance Company here in Africa in order to safe myself and my assets. Thereafter I left the guy's apartment to an hotel where I am in right now and from which I am communicating to you right now.
I don't want to fall into another terrible situation again after all these that I have faced and I am not ready to be used this time. I need to be very very careful of whom i will go out with or date this time. I will need some words from you, which will prove to me about your interest in me and what exactly you want out of our relationship. I am very eager to have a date now, since i would be coming back to the State as soon as possible you want me to, provided you will treat me in an orderly manner. Well, let me hang on here till I hear from you. I hope you will understand my situation at this time and I hope you will come to my resucue and be of whom i expect you to be. I really need to be loved cos i deserve it.I need a man that would always be there for me, who will be like a father and husband to me, i will reciprocate true LOVE as well.
Its a great pleasure reading from you.How are you doing?I really want to get out of here to come to the Australia.I really need your help and trust to get me out of this mess.I want you to have my words as i promise i wouldnt dis-appoint you,i will really appreciate your assistance towards this.Once i get there, we will arrange things in order and we can start a new life together.I want to believe that you will not let
me down.

Babes as i have told you what brought me here from the States. I came in here with a total sum of $5millionUSD including the money i got from my dad's business and contracts renumeration.While i was coming here, the african guy told me to come with enough money for investment and i even go to the extent of selling my inheritted house just because i want to leave the Australia .Now, i'm in need of your help, i've gotten enuogh money to run myself when I get to the Australia, i want to come over to your end and we can start a new life together, I don't want to live here anymore.As you know i'm a foreigner here and its absolutely dangerous for me out here.Thats why i need your gesture assistance.
How i want you to help me? As i'm scared of being setup by this African guy,i had to act fast for safety.I put this money in a box and got it locked up with a security code known to me only.I deposited the box with some of my travelling luggages with a Security and Insurance Company who render private diplomatic delivery service and i told them that the two boxes are my travelling luggage, which I want to send forth to the Australia because i'm returning home, then i paid them up their custody and security fee, but i did not tell them that the boxes contain money in order to make everything secure and safe.
I want the boxes sent to you while i catch up with you as soon as it is been delivered to you.Babes we would meet and we can start a new life together.Every arrangement for the delivery is perfect, I have obtained customs papers for private freight and there are seals on the box showing that it is a private delivery and check performed, it is free from customs checks, it will be delivered at your door step by the diplomats of the security company, you do not need to burn out to receive it. And the boxes have security codes lock known to me only, only me can open the boxes, except if I tell anyone the Code, so the Boxes cannot be opened on the Way of delivery to you.
Therefore, I want you to contact me as soon as possible, so that I can give you all my deposit details and information for you to make the Clearance from the Security Company as my fiancee who is to receive my boxes in the Australia.Once the box gets to you,i will let you know the lock codes to open the boxes and the instructions, then you can open the boxes in order to have some money sent to me for my flight to the Australia.
Once I get there, we shall invest the money together and start a new family, provided you will not disappoint neither take advantage of me. I hereby promise 15% of the total fund for you to meet any personal needs and i can get something done with the balance.
I am counting on you with trust and i'll appreciate your trust towards this.I hope to hear from you and to meet you in person.Please write me as soon as possible, so that I can give you the deposit details and the contact of the security company to arrange the shipment asap.
With all care,
Sandra.
