Fake Email Bank Draft from Kate Hood

I have been waiting for you since to contact me for your Confirmable Bank
Draft of $1,000,000,00 USD (One Million United Statest Dollars),but I did
not hear from you since that time. Then I went and deposited the Draft with
Ups Courier Express,West Africa,I travelled out of the country for a 3
Months Course and I will not come back till end of December.

I want you to try all your best and contact the UPS COURIER SERVICE as soon
as possible to know when you will get this package because of the expiring
date.For your information,I have paid for the Security Keeping Fee,
Insurance premium and Clearance Certificate Fee of the Cheque showing that
it is not a Drug Money or meant to sponsor Terrorist attacking your Country.

The only money you will send to the Ups Courier Express to deliver your
Draft direct to your postal Address in your country is $120 Us Dollars only
being Delivering Charge Fee of the Courier Company so far. Again,don't be
deceived by any person to pay any other money except $120 Us Dollars being
the Delivering Charge .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 UPS COURIER SERVICE now for the delivery of your Draft
with this below information.

Contact Person: Mr. Charles Anderson
Email Address: contact_ups08@yahoo.com.hk

Telephone: +234-7030884531

Lastly, You are advice to send the below information to the Courier Company:

Your Full Name:

Do send it to them again to avoid any mistake on the Delivery and ask them
to give you the tracking number to enable you track your package over there

    I got this one today, and it's hilarious that is says that the delivery fee is not "drug money or for attacking your country".
