The message below, sent randomly to thousands of people, is a typical “abandoned property scam.” The scammer claims to be a customs inspector who has found an abandoned fortune with your name on it (literally). You just have to send him your personal information (so he can scam you further), and then the (non-existent) money will be yours!

MESSAGE FROM CHIEF IMMIGRATION OFFICER.
Los Angeles International Airport.
3435 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 1025
Los Angeles, CA 90010.

Hello my friend, I am Mr. Kalstrom S. James, head of luggage/baggage storage facilities here at the Los Angeles International Airport, [LAX] CA 90010. USA.

During my recent withheld package routine check at the Airport Storage Vault, I discovered an abandoned shipment from a Diplomat from London and when scanned it revealed an undisclosed sum of money in a metal trunk box.

The consignment was abandoned because the Contents of the consignment was not properly declared by the consignee as “MONEY” rather it was declared as personal effect to avoid interrogation and also the inability of the diplomat to pay for the United States Non Inspection Charges which is $3,700USD. On my assumption the consignment is still left in our Storage House here at the Los Angeles International Airport, [LAX] till date.

The details of the consignment including your name, your email address in and the official documents from the United Nations office in Geneva are tagged on the Trunk box. However, to enable me confirm if you are the actual recipient of this consignment as the assistant director of the Inspection Unit, I will advise you to provide your current FULL NAME: ============== COUNTRY: ============== CITY: ============== CURRENT HOME ADDRESS: =========== TELEPHONE/CELL PHONE NUMBER. ========= AGE/OCCUPATION: ============= NEAREST AIRPORT =========.

Once I confirm you as the actual recipient of the trunk box, I will get everything concluded within 48 hours upon your acceptance and proceed to your address for delivery. Lastly, be informed that the reason I have taken it upon myself to contact you personally about this abandoned consignment is because I want us to transact this business and share the money 80 percent for you and 20 percent for me since the consignment has not yet been returned to the United States Treasury Department after being abandoned by the diplomat so immediately the confirmation is made, I will go ahead and pay for the United States Non Inspection Fee of $3,700 dollars and arrange for the box to be delivered to your doorstep Or I can bring it by myself to avoid any more trouble but you have to assure me of my 20 percent share. I wait to hear from you urgently if you are still alive and I will appreciate if we can keep this deal confidential. Please get back to me via for further directives.
Thank you.

Regards,
Mr. Kalstrom S. James,
Chief Immigration officer.
