SHIPMENT OF YOUR CONSIGNMENT TRUNK BOX
From Mr. David Moyes
Head Officer-in-Charge
Administrative Service Inspection Unit
P.O. Box 20509 Atlanta, GA 30320.

I am David Moyes, Head of Inspection Unit United Nations Inspection
Agency in Harts field-Jackson International Airport Atlanta, Georgia.
I came across an abandoned consignment box weighing approximately
242.508IBS and it had your details on it. Fortunately after a scan, it
revealed that the content of the box is some amount of money. By my
assessment, the box contains about 8M USD or more.

As I write, the box is in airport storage facility. The Consignments
like I said is a metal trunk box weighing about 242.508IBS (Internal
dimension: W61 x H156 x D73 (cm) effective Capacity: 680 L)
Approximately. The details of the consignment including your name,
address and email on the official document from United Nations' office
in London where the shipment was tagged as personal effects/classified
document is still available with us. As it stands now, you have to
reconfirm your Full name, address and Phone Number, so I can
cross-check and see if it corresponds with the one on the official
document. It is now left to you to decide if you still need the
consignment or allow us repatriate it back to United Kingdom (place of
origin) as I was instructed.

Warm regards,

David Moyes,
Head Officer-in-Charge,
Administrative Service Inspection Unit.
P.O. Box 20509 Atlanta, GA 30320.

There is no switch. There is nothing.

It's just a basic advance fee fraud. Please confirm who your are (to make you feel it must be legit since they aren't sending it to someone else). Then please send us money to facilitate something (paperwork clearance, or whatever other nonsense they can think of). Then send us more money to facilitate something else. Repeat until you run out of money or stop responding.

If you want to play one of these scammers out, then send them false details about who your are, from a fresh email address. They will say your details are confirmed then they will ask for money.

As indicated here, this one has been making the rounds for a couple of years. The sender's name has been changed since that one was posted. The erroneous space in the airport name "Hartsfield-Jackson" has not been corrected in the interim. A number of odd capitalizations also remain. Perhaps readers who don't notice things like that are more likely to fall for the con. Also, the address being a P.O. box does not ring true. It rings more like an alarm bell.

ATTENTION: I am Mr. Allen Beneth Head of Inspection Unit United Nations Inspection Agency in Harts field-Jackson International Airport Atlanta, Georgia. During our investigation, I discovered An
abandoned shipment through a Diplomat from United Kingdom which was transferred from JF Kennedy Airport.
The old version hinted more directly at its advance fee fraud nature:
Quote:
The consignment was abandoned because the Content was not properly declared by the consignee as money rather it was declared as personal Effect/classified document to either avoid diversion by the Shipping Agent or confiscation by the relevant authorities. The diplomat's inability to pay for Non Inspection fees among other things are the reason why the consignment is delayed and abandoned.

This is kinda weird: I'm not up on these things, but 234-818-329-8398 looks like an international phone number -- country code, 3-digit area code, 7-digit phone number. Now 234 is the country code for Nigeria. (Gee, there's a shocker!) But as far as I've looked, the area codes in Nigeria (except for the toll-free area code 806) are 1 or 2 digits, not three digits. (So to call the US Embassy in central Abuja from the US, you would dial 011-234-09-461-4000.) The 011 is the "exit code" for calls going outside the US.

Ignoring the 234, the US 3-digit area code 818 is for Los Angeles, and 818-329-8398 is a US Mobility number in Van Nuys.

The US 3-digit area code 234 is for northeast Ohio.

In theory, someone could simply dial the given number to see what happens. In practice, this hypothetical "someone" will not be me.
