This is to bring to your notice that a bank draft of $1,000,000.00 United

random computer e-mail search. I Mrs. Marie Alex , a worker in the World
Bank have deposited the draft with (UPS EXPRESS, NIGERIA), after many
e-mails to you which you have not replied.. I have travelled out of
Nigeria now, I do hope that you will receive this mail and act fast.What
you have to do now is to contact the UPS EXPRESS, NIGERIA as soon as
possible to know when they will deliver the package to you because of the
expiring date. For your information,I have paid for the delivering
Charge,Insurance premium and Clearance Certificate Fee of the Cheque
showing that it is not a Drug Money or meant to sponsor Terrorist attack
in your Country.You are advice to contact the courier services immediatey
Again, I would have paid for the Security Keeping fee but they refused
because they said they don't know when you will contact them and in case
of demurrage.

your Bank Draft valued at $1,000,000.00 United States Dollars with this
information, All you have to do is contact or furnish UPS EXPRESS NIGERIA

"... and remember to pay them...."

To think, somebody, somewhere, is falling for this! Or they wouldn't keep doing it.

There was a Dateline programme on this. It's a scam. Pure and simple.

I think UPS is a little late with this response. Got this in my email from them this morning.

"We have become aware there is a fraudulent e-mail being sent that says it is coming from UPS and leads the reader to believe that a UPS shipment could not be delivered. The reader is advised to open an attachment reportedly containing a waybill for the shipment to be picked up.

This e-mail attachment contains a virus. We recommend that you do not open the attachment, but delete the e-mail immediately.

UPS may send official notification messages on occasion, but they rarely include attachments. If you receive a notification message that includes an attachment and are in doubt about its authenticity, please contact customerservice@ups.com.

Please note that UPS takes its customer relationships very seriously, but cannot take responsibility for the unauthorized actions of third parties.

Thank you for your attention. "

All that stuff is a scam.

As someone said, I am not really asking if this is a scam. It just amazes me people actually fall for stuff like this. People have to still be falling for it. I could not believe it took UPS that long to figure this out. "I did not contact them by the way".
