The Fraudulent Email Message
Subject: Delivery Notification of Your Consignment
This is to acknowledge the receipt of your affirmation and to inform you of the latest development in regards to the delivery of your consignment box conveyed by courier diplomatic agent. During the scanning of your consignment box, our cash-track machine detected that the content of the consignment box is cash worth US$10,500,000.00 only.
In accordance with section 34 and 36 of the Custom sector, it is not acceptable to bring over US$100,000 into the United States of America without proper documentations and clearance because it shows that the money is either being smuggled into the country or the source of the funds is questionable.
It is very important that all the relevant documentations needed to authenticate the source of the funds are provided to prove that the funds were earned legitimately in accordance with the PATRIOT ACT so that IRS and Homeland Security will not come knocking at your door.in lieu of the above, it is therefore mandatory that you shall provide the Nigeria Custom Clearance Certificate (N.C.C.C) to prove that the funds is not linked with any form of illegality. Being the beneficiary of the consignment, the Nigeria Custom Clearance Certificate (N.C.C.C) is the only way of confirming the source of the funds and it is your responsibility to provide the Certificate before the diplomat will be allowed to complete the delivery of your consignment box to your house.
The diplomat's Flight Details shows that he came from Nigeria and we have contacted the responsible authority in Nigeria to inquire about the process of getting the Certificate. We were informed that the beneficiary of the consignment will pay for the Certificate and the cost of this documentation is just US$91 only so that your consignment delivery will be successfully done within 5-hours/ without any hitches or delay after the N.C.C.C is secured.
Upon the receipt of the needed information of yours, then I will send you the information you will use in sending the fee to Nigeria Custom Service Authority so as to enable them issue the above mentioned document in your name so that the Diplomat will be allowed to complete the delivery of your consignment to your house.
Finally, kindly send me your full name, full address, direct phone number and drivers license or passport for identification.
