Scammers routinely use the names of real persons and businesses in their scam messages, in order to lend legitimacy to their fraudulent schemes. There is a real TNT courier company, for example, but they have nothing to do with the scam message below. The scammers, “Richard Bath” and “John Agulerie,” claim to represent that company, but in reality they are probably working from a cheap cell phone in an Internet cafe somewhere in Africa.
