RE URGENT NOTICE
Records shows that you are among one of the individuals and organizations that are yet to have their consignments with the Hartsfield Jackson International airport Atlanta Georgia delivered. We noticed from our investigation that you have two metal trunk boxes to be delivered to you which you have abandoned for a long time due to your non compliance with the Airport authority directives thereby putting the delivery process on hold. Our further investigations revealed that some people took advantage of this to extort money from beneficiaries claiming to be the staffs of the airport due to the fact that they are aware of the existence of the boxes in the airport.
The Cyber Crime Division of the Home-land security gathered information from the Internet Crime Complaint Center (ICCC) formerly known as the Internet Fraud Complaint Center (IFCC) of how some people have lost outrageous sums of money to these imposters. As a result of this we hereby advise you to stop communication with any one not referred to you by us.
We have negotiated with the U.S Treasury department that your consignment delivery to your address from the Hartsfield Jackson international Airport will be handled by them since our investigations revealed that the content of the boxes are money totaling $16,500,000.00. (SIXTEEN MILLION FIVE HUNDRED THOUSAND UNITED STATES DOLLARS) which has been tested and approved by the U.S. Treasury Department before they accepted the offer that it is not a counterfeit and that you are the rightful owner of the consignment.
We guarantee 100% delivery of your boxes, because we have perfected everything in regards to the release of your boxes to be 100% risk free and free from any hitches as it’s our duty to protect citizens of the United States of America. (This is as a result of the mandate from US Government to make sure all luggage’s belonging to citizens of America are been cleared for the betterment of the current economic status of the nation and its citizens as he has always believed Our Time for Change has come because Change can happen.
In response to this letter we will advice you on whom to contact at the U.S Treasury department who will cross check with the airport authority to find out the exact amount due to your boxes to be paid to the airport authority which they are going to handle themselves to avoid any impostor who might claim what he is not, note that that you are not allowed to deal directly with the airport authority as all dealing must go through the U.S. Treasury Department to avoid any further delay and all interactions must be through email to help us checkmate all the discussions for record purposes.
Finally, you have to be aware that Homeland security and indeed the United States Government can not be held responsible for any further delay or loss of your boxes if you fail to comply with the directives of this office.
Mr. Frank Navarro.
Director of Operations,
- Grammar! Spelling! AMAZING! Apparently a home-grown scammer who passed their college English classes for a change. Impressive!
- Cryptic inspirational message for kicks and giggles with unnecessary capitalized word. "...he has always believed Our Time for Change has come because Change can happen."
What they did wrong:
- Told me right out they would be taking money from me. "check with the airport authority to find out the exact amount due to your boxes to be paid to the airport authority"
- Told me "Don't call the airport or anyone involved in this! Just email us... I mean them!" "you are not allowed to deal directly with the airport authority as all dealing must go through the U.S. Treasury Department to avoid any further delay and all interactions must be through email to help us checkmate all the discussions for record purposes."
