Just for shˇts & giggles, I entered the tracking # on DHL's site (not the links in the email eek). It's apparently an actual shipment, but sent to a woman in Indiana. I called DHL and they had me forward the email and a PDF of the tracking page to their fraud department.

BTW, if you scan halfway down the email, it says I can have the "package" forwarded to me for a $170 redirect fee — paid to one Mr. Aniemena John! shocked

Pretty clever. They set up a straw shipment so it looks legit, and some poor dumb schmuck will take the bait.

Many will. Greed is a profitable business.

I'm tempted to establish a straw gmail account and email this fine gentleman a few hundred long paragraphs of "lorem ipsum dolor..." greeking — and hit resend a dozen or more times. grin

Back in the day, I had a sinister method for dealing with junk fax: If the sender was dumb enough to include a fax-back number, I would feed a sheet of black construction paper into my fax machine, advance it through the feed rollers enough to tape the leading and trailing edges together to form a tube. Then hit send and go out for lunch! laugh
