You either hit paydirt today or, had very little else to do. :)
Seems my forum mail has become popular among scammers ...

Since they are all sendt from Gmail, maybe same person?

You guys are really lucky having all these generous people send you emails to give you money.  I'm obviously not that lucky as it is rare for me to receive any.
Should i forward your mail address?    ;D

Chief Wiggum: Uh, no, you got the wrong number. This is 9-1…2.

You can't do it now (it's still X-mas). Maybe later?

I wondered how long it would take before this type of SPAM would appear:


It goes without saying that the only reason for this email is to get your information.
Enough information to make them rich and you poor.

Phishing Email Ironically Provides a List of Scammers You Should Avoid
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/phishing-email-ironically-provides-a-list-of-scammers-you-should-avoid/
A bit ironic to see one article on bleeping computers and it's news.
We've been posting about this topic and the spammers and emails to avoid since 2011. :)

Operations, Maintenance and Transportation officer.
Miami International Airport 2100 NW 42nd Ave, Miami,
FL 33126, United States
INSPECTION UNIT
Call :(+1) 561-693-6516


Attention beneficiary,
                                                                   
I have a substantial information to give you, but before I give you any detail about this classified information, I must seek your utmost discretion about these vital information that's gonna change our lives forever. Any mistake might cost me my job therefore I need to know if i can trust you enough in order for me to reveal this secret to you.
 
My name is Ronald MacLeod, i am the Operations, Maintenance and Transportation officer here at the Miami International Airport FL, USA. Last week Tuesday, as i was making my usual routine check at the Airport Storage Vault, I discovered an abandoned shipment from London and when scanned it revealed an undisclosed sum of money in a Metal Trunk Box weighing approximately 110kg With Registration RBT-45C. The consignment was abandoned because the Contents of the consignment was not properly declared by the consignee as "MONEY" rather it was declared as personal effect to avoid interrogation and also the inability of the diplomat to pay for the United States Non Inspection Charges which is $3,700USD. On my assumption the consignment is still left in our Storage House here at the Miami International Airport Miami Florida till date. The details of the consignment including your name, your email address and the official documents from the United Nations office in Geneva are tagged on the Trunk box.

However, to enable me confirm if you are the actual recipient of this consignment as the assistant director of the Inspection Unit, I will advise you provide your current Phone Number and Full Address, to enable me cross check if it corresponds with the address on the official documents including the name of nearest Airport around your city. Please note that this consignment is supposed to have been returned to the United States Treasury Department as unclaimed delivery due to the delays in concluding the clearance processes so as a result of this, I will not be able to receive your details on my official email account. So in order words to enable me cross check your details, I will advise you send the required details to my private email address for quick processing and response. Once I confirm you as the actual recipient of the trunk box, I can get everything concluded within 48hours upon your acceptance and proceed to your address for delivery.

Lastly, be informed that the reason I have taken it upon myself to contact you personally about this abandoned consignment is because I want us to transact this business and share the money 70% for you and 30% for me since the consignment has not yet been returned to the United States Treasury Department after being abandoned by the diplomat so immediately the confirmation is made, I will go ahead and pay for the United States Non Inspection Fee of $3,700 dollars and arrange for the box to be delivered to your doorstep Or I can bring it by myself to avoid any more trouble but you have to assure me of my 30% share.

I wait to hear from you urgently if you are still alive and I will appreciate if we can keep this deal confidential. Please get back to me via my private Emai ( rnldmacleod@gmail.com ) for further directives

Warmest Regards,
Chief Inspection Officer
Agent MacLeod

Greetings,
 
Compliment of the day, May I have the pleasure of introducing myself ? I am Albert Truswell, I am 83 years old man, dying and suffering from cancer disease for some years now. I got your contacts details after an extensive online search for a reliable person to entrust fund for charity works.
 
I have decided to donate my social fund 8.5Million British Pounds   (Eight million five hundred thousand British Pounds) which I deposited with a bank, as I do not have wife, family or children that can inherit these funds when am gone. So I request you to contact me immediately for more details if you are interested in receiving these funds and carrying out this project, so that I can arrange the release of these funds to you from the bank before anything happens to my life.
 
Thank you and God bless you.
 
Mr. Albert Truswell
Cancer Patient


Chief Wiggum: Uh, no, you got the wrong number. This is 9-1…2.
