    I receive letters like that all the time. Yes, even the one on Zenith Bank. You really have to look at them hard because they look and sound real. I have even had Western Union documents emailed to me, and even some Bank of America Travelers checks sent in the mail along with some other checks. DO NOT SEND THESE PEOPLE ANY INFORMAION. INFORMATION IS ALSO WHAT THEY WANT ALONG WITH YOUR MONEY.
    I took the travelers check to Bank of America but instead of cashing it, I had BOA look into it first. Let me tell you, they were shocked. These checks looked so real and you WOULD NOT KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.
    SO, BEWARE, THEY ARE ALSO VERY GOOD COUNTERFEITTERS…VERY WELL…

    With that I decided to help you pay the money so that,the ATM will not expire,because I know when you get your ATM definitely you must pay me back my money and even compensate me for helping you.

    Now i want you to contact DHL DELIVERY SERVICE with your Full Contact informations so that they can deliver your Card to your designated address without any delay. Like i stated earlier, The delivery charges has been paid but i did not pay their official keeping fees since they refused.

    They refused and the reason is that they do not know when you are going to contact them and dumurrage might have increase.They told me that their keeping fees is $25 per day and i deposited it on sunday this week.

    Dear Melissa Rollins,

    RE: PAYMENT BY AN AUTOMATED TELLER MACHINE (ATM) CARD.

    Consequently, we will programm your Automated Teller Machine (ATM) Card with the sum of Five Million United States Dollars (US$5,000,000.00) only
    and we are also pleased to inform you also that, your ATM card will be delivered to you through our accredited delivery Company, Deliveryman Courier Services to your door step.

    As soon as we have concluded our documentations, a copy of your ATM Visa card will be sent to you and it will be dispatched to you immediately through our accredited delivery Company, Deliveryman Courier Services as soon as the Personal Identification Numbers (PIN) is programmed on it, they will be contacting you and your parcel could be tracked online. and all the information about the usage of this card will be attached to the original copy of your ATM card that we are delivering to you via courier.

    Your payment sum of Five Million United States Dollars (US$5,000,000.00) only will be programmed in the card, and the card withdrawable limit per day is
    US$5,000.00. You do not have any fee to pay to this Committee, but the delivery charges will be borne by you as may be requested by the Courier Company.

    It is important to state here however that the reason of nominating this procedure is to reduce the problems associated with transfer of huge sums of funds out of Nigeria. whereby several documentations are being required, but with this process, you would be cashing the funds bit by bit, with this therefore the authorities would not be alerted when transfers are made.

    I guess they have changed tactics…. They contacted me over the phone about a $6.5 million dollar ATM card. So far they have not asked me for money but are sending me a form to ask for personal information… Fat chance of them getting it back, at least with real information.
