Another not too personalized Nigerian scam

Isn't it a bit odd that a Ms Marina with such an odd sounding first name that if I didn't see her use it as her first name, would have guessed that the lvovska part of her email address would only refer to some L Vovska but even that way it sounds too Polish, Russian or East European to be a kosher thing from Africa. And why the address? It maybe helps it pass your spamfilters better but why a lovely lady with such a first name as Lvovska who is studying at Marshall University, Huntington, WV would be involved with such amounts of money?

Isn't it a bit odd that this Lvovska is also sending this to undisclosed recipients? That never means only you.
Isn't it a bit odd that the people you should be contacting in Nigeria have a free email service in UK and ... well, at least that phone number is for a Nigerian number.

Anyone up to calling this Fedex courier with a free UK email address (but not a fedex one) and give them what this Ms Maryna asks for?

From: "Lvovska, Maryna"
To: undisclosed-recipients


I am Lvovska Maryna. I have been waiting for you since to contact me for your
Confirmable Bank Draft of $950.000.00 United States Dollars, but I did not hear from you since that time.
Then I went and deposited the Draft with FEDEX COURIER SERVICE, West Africa, I traveled out of the
country for an asignment and I will not come back till end of Febuary 2009.
What you have to do now is to contact the FEDEX COURIER SERVICE as soon
as possible to know when they will deliver your package to you because of the expiring

For your information, I have paid for the delivering Charge, Insurance
premium and Clearance Certificate Fee of the cheque showing that it is
not a Drug Money or meant to sponsor Terrorist attack in your Country.
The only money you will send to the FEDEX COURIER SERVICE to deliver
your Draft direct to your postal Address in your country is ($390.00 USD) Dollars only
being Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far. Again, don't be
deceived by anybody to pay any other money except $390.00 US Dollars. I would have
paid that but they said no because they don't know when you will contact them and
in case of Demurrage.

You have to contact the FEDEX COURIER SERVICE now for the delivery of
your Draft with this information below;

Contact Person: Mr.Gary Albert
FedEx West Africa.
Telephone: +234-702-518-8585

Finally, make sure that you reconfirm the following:
(1) Full names
(2) Your Postal address
(3) and Direct telephone number
To avoid any mistake on the Delivery and ask them to give you the tracking number immediately you make the payment to them
to enable you track your package over there and know when it will get to your address.

Let me repeat again, try to contact them as soon as you receive this
mail to avoid any further delay and remember to pay them their Security
Keeping fee of $390 US Dollars for their immediate action.

You should not bother to contact me as I will not be around to check my emails since I am on an asignment till the
end of Febuary 2009.

Yours Faithfully,
Lvovska Maryna.
