The scam

Dear Friend,

Re: Your Abandoned Metal Trunk Box For Delivery:

I have very vital information to give to you, but first I must have
your trust before I reveal it to you, as this may cost me my job, so I
want to believe that I can trust you enough to review this top secret
with you.

I am Mr. Nzue Konan, the head at the Luggage/Baggage Storage facility
here at J.F Kennedy International Airport New York- USA. During my
recent routine check of loss in transit and withheld luggage at the
Airport Storage Vault, I discovered an abandoned consignment brought
in by a Diplomat from London Heathrow International Airport. When the
Baggage was scanned at our arrival lounge, it revealed an undisclosed
sum of money in a metal trunk baggage.

This Baggage was abandoned because the contents of the consignment was
not declared by the consignee as "MONEY" rather it was declared as
personal effect to avoid interrogation on arrival and most importantly
the inability of the diplomat to pay the United States Non Inspection
Charges which was billed at $4,500 only.

The consignment is still held at our Storage Facility here at the
airport terminal. Interestingly, the details on the air freight log
includes your name, telephone number, email address and some official
documents from the United Nations in Geneva are listed as contents of
the trunk box.

In a bid to confirm beyond reasonable doubt that you are the actual
recipient of this consignment, in my capacity as the director of
Baggage Inspection Unit,

Reconfirm your details

1. Full Name
2. Residential Address
3. Age
4. Occupation
5. Direct Telephone Numbers
6. Nearest Airport

then I can cross check if it tallies with the address on the official
documents. include the name of nearest airport closest to your

So note that this shipment was supposed to have been returned to the
United States Treasury Department as unclaimed shipment due to the
delays in concluding the clearance processes, so as a result of this,
I will not be able to receive your details through my official email
account, because our office email accounts are monitored but I will
feel safer if you can send the details to my private email account for
a quick review, processing and response.

As soon as I confirm that you as the intended recipient of the trunk
box in question, I assure you that I can get everything concluded
within 48 hours upon your acceptance and proceed with the delivery to
your address as scheduled.

For your information, the reason I took it upon myself to personally
contact and notify you of the situation on your abandoned consignment
is because I want to retire soon and we transact this business and
share the money 70% for you and 30% for me, since the consignment was
not returned to the United States Treasury Department despite being
abandoned by the diplomat.

Do we have a deal?
Can I trust you to complete this?

I need your confirmation and honest response to my questions, if you
assure me, then I will go ahead and settle the United States Non
Inspection Fee of $4,500 then clear the baggage for delivery to your
doorstep, I will bring it myself but you have to assure me of my 30%

Looking forward to read from you urgently, and I will appreciate if we
can keep this deal confidential. You can call me on +1-347-329-2843
for oral clarification, but note that if am not available to accept
your call, kindly leave a voice message or send an SMS, I will surely
get back to you.

Thank you.

Mr. Nzue Konan
Inspection Director
J.F Kennedy International Airport New York
