What is this, an e-mail trailer for some 419 Hollywood Blockbuster? Looks like the scammers are still living in the past, we are already 6 months into 2008 and they are still launching New Year programs? Perhaps they forgot to send this e-mail in January.
"was gotten"? So much for posing as UN Officials, they just blew their cover with their 'great' English skills. We finally found out where spammers get all their e-mail addresses, the "Country's electronic e-mail directory".
Right, they figured out that people are more vigilant these days, so they are trying to pose as the good guys now.
So this means 40% of their targets still fall for these scams. We hope to see one of these e-mails at some stage in the future, stating that 100% of their beneficiaries sent them to hell. Online scams are not deteriorating at all, they are escalating at a horrific rate.
New measures to erase the impressions of the past? So posing as UN Officials and supposedly using the reputable FedEx Courier Service will magically erase the impressions of the past? Sorry Mr. 419 Scammer but you have to try harder than that. Remember the golden rule: First Impressions Last!
Your "roccommendation" sucks! So much for the "professionalism" mentioned in the paragraph prior to this one.
Why would you want to contact the "Delivery Service Unit" for your personal information? The best person to contact for your personal information is yourself.
Your Full Names
Your Delivery Address
Your Contact Phone Number
What are these scammers smoking? How do you reconfirm blank details? They said they already made an International Bank Draft out in your name, so why can't they include those details here? They never had your name in the first place and there is no Bank Draft, they are only phishing for your personal information and trying to rob you from $200.00 (or more).
Wow! This scammer must have a huge office. His telephone is in Nigeria and his fax machine is in the UK. (234 is the Nigerian country code and 009 is their international exit code. 44 off course, is the country code for the United Kingdom).
