Hello Good Friend

Your Abandoned Package For Delivery

I have very vital information to give to you, but first I must have
Your trust before I review it to you because it may cause me my job,
So I need somebody that I can trust for me to be able to review the
Secret to you.

I am Mr. kevin byner, head of luggage/baggage storage facilities
(Operations, Maintenance, Transportation) here at the Harrisburg
International Airport, Pennsylvania USA. During my recent withheld
Package routine check at the Airport Storage Vault, I discovered an
Abandoned shipment from a Diplomat from London and when scanned it
Revealed an undisclosed sum of money in a Metal Trunk Box weighing
Approximately 110kg. The consignment was abandoned because the
Contents of the consignment was not properly declared by the consignee
As "MONEY" rather it was declared as personal effect to avoid
Interrogation and also the inability of the diplomat to pay for the
United States Non Inspection Charges which is $3,700USD. On my
Assumption the consignment is still left in our Storage House here at
the Harrisburg International Airport Pennsylvania till date. The
Details of the consignment including your name, your email address and
the official documents from the United Nations office in Geneva are
Tagged on the Trunk box.

However, to enable me confirm if you are the actual recipient of this
Consignment as the assistant director of the Inspection Unit, I will
Advice you provide your current Phone Number and Full Address, to
Enable me cross check if it corresponds with the address on the
Official documents including the name of nearest Airport around your
city. Please note that this consignment is supposed to have been
Returned to the United States Treasury Department as unclaimed
Delivery due to the delays in concluding the clearance processes so as
A result of this, I will not be able to receive your details on my
Official email account. So in order words to enable me cross check
Your details, I will advise you send the required details to my
Private email address for quick processing and response. Once I
Confirm you as the actual recipient of the trunk box, I can get
Everything concluded within 48hours upon your acceptance and proceeds
To your address for delivery.

Lastly, be informed that the reason I have taken it upon myself to
Contact you personally about this abandoned consignment is because I
Want us to transact this business and share the money 70% for you and
30% for me since the consignment has not yet been returned to the
United States Treasury Department after being abandoned by the
Diplomat so immediately the confirmation is made, I will go ahead and
Pay for the United States Non Inspection Fee of $3,700 dollars and
Arrange for the box to be delivered to your doorstep or I can bring it
by myself to avoid any more trouble but you have to assure me of my
30% share.

I wait to hear from you urgently if you are still alive and I will
Appreciate if we can keep this deal confidential. Please get back to
Me via my private Email [email protected]) for further
Directives

REPLY ONLY ON THIS [email protected]

Thank you.

Love it.

I like the phone calls that ask you to prove who you are, but they rang you.

"$3,700 dollars" reads "3700 dollars dollars."

Surprising he hasn't asked for your bank account details [together with any passwords etc] so possibly it is genuine [NOT]
There again it might be with all my money etc which I only have to forward a fee to enable him to clear the Authorities.
Unfortunately, there are people who actually fall for these and lose a lot of money and/or have their accounts completely stripped

Oh please don't start that one!

Drives me bloody barmy. Occasionally it is quite clearly who it is meant to be but they get really flustered when you get them to go through 'data protection' hoops. Can provide days ... if not weeks of entertainment when they are trying to tell you something important but want YOU to prove who you are and you won't.

This whole thing has got completely silly. The latest GDPR stuff has taken it into the realm of ridiculous!
