Security Keeping fee!!!!

October 3, 2008 7:00am CST
I just recieved this very convincing yet risky message from unknown person saying that I have pay this Security Keeping fee for the delivery of the Draft Cheque. It is really funny message you can read this.... It goes this way.... Dear friend, How are you today ?.I'm writing to inform you that I have Paid the fee for your Draft Cheque. Yesterday, I went to the bank to confirm if the Cheque has expired or getting near to expire and Mr.Ahmed Zuma the Director of B.O.A Bank of Africa told me that before the cheque will get to your hand that it will expire. So I told him to cash the $950,000.00, to cash payment to avoid losing this funds under expiration as I will be out of the country for a 6 Months Course. What you have to do now is to contact the Apex as soon as possible to know when they will deliver your package to you immediatey.For your information, I have paid for the yellow tag fee and delivery Charge. The only money you will send to the Apex Courier to deliver your Consignment direct to your postal Address in your country is US$106 One Hundred & Six United States Dollars only being Security Keeping Fee for the Apex Service 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 dumourrage on your Package with them. Please write a letter of application to the given address below: Company Name: Apex Courier Manager.Nelson Fabian Finally, make sure that you reconfirm your Postal address,nearest local and international airport, Direct telephone number contact address and picture or id to avoid wrong delivery, they will issue you a delivery code#, to enable you track your consignment box 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 $106.00 for their immediate action to deliver urgently. Note this. The Apex Courier don't know the contents of the Box. I registered it as a BOX of Africa cloths. They did not know the contents was money. this is to avoid them delaying with the BOX. Don't let them know that the box contains funds. Thanks and More Blesssing. Regards, Eustace Mark

I seee you have got one of these as well. I've recievd them several times in the past. To me they are both ridiculous and offensive. I think it's funny because it is so obvious it's a scam, such a bad attempt! It also gets me angry. Whay do these people think they deserve our hard earned money?They need to get real jobs! Happy Mylotting!
