This email comes from firstname.lastname@example.org, Mrs. Rosemary Campbell but it asks you to respond to email@example.com. The scam tries to convince you that there is compensation of 1.65 million dollars in return for your hardship during an earlier scam.
To receive your money, they claim you simply need to pay $104 and that they have paid everything else. It’s a scam, don’t respond! Here is the email I received below:
Customers Service Hours–Monday to Saturday:
Office Hours Monday to Saturday:
We have been waiting for you to contact me for your Trunk Box worth $1,650,000.00 (One Million, Six Hundred and Fifty Thousand United States Dollars), being compensation fund for 150 scam victims, but I did not hear from you all this while.
I have deposited the Trunk Box with UPS COURIER SERVICE, West Africa, I traveled out of the country for a 3 Months Course and I, Mrs. Rosemary Campbell, will not be back until completion of my 3 months course. What you have to do now is to contact the UPS COURIER SERVICE immediately to know when they will deliver your consignment to you because of the expiring date.
For your information, I, Mrs. Rosemary Campbell, have paid for the delivery Charge, Insurance premium and Clearance Certificate Fee of the consignment showing that it is not a Drug Money or meant to sponsor Terrorism attack in your Country. The only money you will send to the UPS COURIER SERVICE to deliver your Trunk Box direct to your postal Address in your country is US $104 only being Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far. Again, don’t be deceived by anybody to pay any other money except US $104.
I would have paid that but they refused, because they don’t know when you will contact them and in case of demurrage. You have to contact the UPS COURIER SERVICE now for the delivery of your Trunk Box with this information below:

Let me repeat again, try to contact them immediately you receive this mail to avoid any further delay and remember to pay the Security Keeping fee of US $104 for their immediate action. You should also let me know through email as soon as you receive your consignment. Below is an attached copy of your trunk box.
