Fastway is apparently a real courier company that operates everywhere but Asia and the Americas. This scam-mail isn't from them, however. This is another one of those delivery scams where they say they have a large "bank draft" that's to be delivered to you, usually somewhere around a million dollars. They always say that "someone deposited it" with them for delivery, but it used to be that they never said who. They almost always used to say that the "delivery" was in cash, too, which is always false if you know the delivery business like I do. That's what armored trucks are for, because they are bonded, whereas ordinary delivery services are not. At any rate, the stories about their little scams have been slowly improving, but that still does not make them true. They never are. There is no bank draft and there is nothing to be delivered to you. More of these samples are linked here, and there are three different videos located here.

Oh let's see here. This is a slightly new twist on the Nigerian 419 Delivery Scam. It looks like they're getting desperate, trying to get more people to believe their little scam stories. After all, the one and only reason the scammers send these things out is to scam you out of your money. Otherwise, they wouldn't be scammers. Yet now they're saying you can get your nonexistent "fund" without any delivery or insurance fees! Surely there's got to be a catch, and just as surely enough, there is. You're to pay a "government administrative" fee, as if these guys have anything to do with the Nigerian government. They do not, of course. Send them money, and you will never receive anything in return. That's how it always works, and there are no exceptions whatsoever. There are more FedEx scam samples linked Here, and there are three delivery scam videos linked Here. ABC made a mini-documentary about the Nigerian 419 scam artists; see it Here.

FedEx Delivery Scam
This one's hot 'n' fresh right out of my inbox, but it's also old. Look at the current scam on this page that I got about an hour ago, near the top on the right. And then look to the left, at a scam I got nearly a year ago. They're virtually identical, still the same FedEx Delivery Scam LOL. Only the scammers have changed names, and the "delivery fee" has gone up by forty dollars. You'd think these guys could make up their own stuff. NHAT. There are also three Delivery Scam videos, available Here. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You!
I've been getting one particularly abusive, insistent spam-mail for at least the past couple of months, every single day, sometimes more than twice a day. It tells us that we have a "package" arriving in a few days, and that we should open the zipped attachment to see what it's about. If you see this, do not download the attachment at all. I unzipped it to a flash drive, and my anti-virus software flagged it right away. It's a trojan.
The spam always claims to be from DHL, FedEx, UPS, and sometimes a company called "Express Delivery." I started posting about it on some other blogs and forums, warned other recipients about it, and told the spammers to stop. They have not stopped, and I began to report them to SpamCop. Every time a domain of theirs is shut down, they're right back again, e-mailing from another domain, whether it's in China, Russia, Singapore, Brazil, or wherever.
I'm not sure why, but these spammers are very insistent and aggressive in their bulk mailing spam campaigns. See more about it Here, and please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You.
This creature is anything but your "dear friend." This scam is very simple, not very imaginative, and spelled out on my website, a little ways down the page on the left. Basically, "she" has gone away to Japan, and has deposited your "consignment" of $5 million with a security company. It's just a classic delivery scam. Click Here to see more of these, and there's a UPS scam video Here. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated. Thank You.
Our latest entry comes from a scammer claiming to be the son of one of the secretaries of Hosni Mubarek, an "Abdulrahman Ibrahim." It's not. Since the Egyptian government has "frozen assets," according to him, he claims that he wants your help in laying his hands on $45 million in cash, which is already on its way to "your country." He doesn't say which one, of course, because he doesn't know where you live. Oh, and for your "help," you get 20 percent LOL. I called this one a delivery scam, because that what he seems to want "help" with. You can see more of those, and this entry, by Clicking Here. Please follow me on Twitter @inscamerated.
Yes, get back to the scammer immediately. Don't think too long about whether it could be a scam or not LOL. "Jack Zellman" is supposed to be some sort of "UN Inspector" working at the airport in Atlanta. He says he's got some "metal trunk boxes" with your name on them, but of course he has BCC'd a whole list of undisclosed recipients. He also says they contain millions of dollars, but that the shipper "abandoned them and ran away" LOL. Now just who do you suppose is going to "run away" from millions of dollars unless it was illegal in some way? Click Here for more silly delivery stories, and Click Here for a UPS delivery scam.

Here is another type of 419 Scam where they say they have your money loaded onto an ATM card, and all they need to send it to you is some sort of fee, as always. In this case it's a "stamp duty." Click Here to see this entry, but there is only one there so far. You can Click Here for more 419 scam samples, and Click Here to see ABC's 419 Nigerian Scam Documentary.

I believe this is another variety of Nigerian 419 scam, I've never seen this one before. It's kind of hard to follow. "Henry Jackson" says "God will bless you if you co-operate." Oh, the arrogance, the irony! LOL! He mentions a "West African Minister of Finance," a "global postal service (GPS)," and "unfinished transfers of funds." There's only one "GPS" that I know about, and it isn't that!
"Ministry" has "ordered" different banks and delivery companies to "release bank drafts" and "ATM cards" to the "GPS" so they can be "mailed out" to "rightful owners." "Henry" mentions no fee, but if he is contacted I'm sure the subject would come up very quickly. Click Here for samples of other delivery scams.

"Mr. William Cross" with "FedEx" says you've won someone's lottery by e-mail, but he doesn't say whose. If you didn't buy a paper ticket, you didn't win. He also wants to "warn" you about all the "scam-mails" so that "your parcel" will not be in danger with their "evil planes" LOL. Don't help them with their English, let them figure it out on their own :o) Oh, and he also wants you to reply to a free qatar.io e-mail address. How do I know it's free e-mail? The scammers have no choice, they always are. To find out, and for more FedEx scam samples, Click Here. Follow me on Twitter @inscamerated.
