the consignment boxes each that worth the sum of $49 Million Us Dollars to the
owners but we just want to be very sure of you and to know if you are still
alive so that our office will not make any mistake or wrong delivery to someone

two days ago (Mrs. Susan brown) sent to us a message stating that she was a
family member of you and she also said that you are no more alive and she made
us to understood that you handed over your belonging to her when you was still
alive so therefore the lady is demanding from our office the two consignment
boxes to be release to her as she is trying to stand as your next of kin but we
are still waiting to see if you will respond to this email before three days
to be very careful

from Mrs. Susan brown but still awaiting to see if you will respond to this
alert message for us to be sure that you are still alive before we tell you the
next line of action and the best way you can received your consignment boxes
without any more delay on it.

The email is a classic example of an Advance Fee Fraud Scam with promises of a large sum of money being transferred to the victim. Anyone responding to it will be told that there is a fee/tax/insurance payment to be paid to receive the money. This will be followed by payment after payment until the victim runs out of money or realises that they are being scammed.
