What is a 'parkage contact'?

It's hard to believe that someone would be taken in by this clumsy scam -- but you never can tell. Perhaps all the typos make the writer seem sincere enough that you'll turn over your bank account information. (They'll ask for it, sooner or later.) Then, goodbye, money!

The sender's email address is at an domain, which is Loyola Marymount University in California, and indeed the message came from their mail servers, which means either a naughty user, an open relay, or a compromised account. Tsk, tsk.

Don't respond, don't be fooled, to messages like this.

From: "Kukla, David Allan"
Subject: You Have A Parkage Contact (


I Guido Pitsi .i have been waiting for you since to contact me for your Confirmable Bank Draft of $800.000.00 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 Travelled out of the country for a three Months Course and I will not come back till end of july. 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 date.

For your information, I have paid for the delivering Charge,Insurance premium and Clearance Certificate Fee of the cheque showing that itis 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 ($350.00 USD) Dollars only being Security Keeping Fee of the Courier Company so far. You have to contact the FEDEX COURIER SERVICE now for the delivery of your Draft with this information bellow;

Finally, make sure that you reconfirm your Postal address() and Direct telephone number to them again to avoid any mistake on the Delivery and askthem to give you the tracking number 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 $350 US Dollars for their immediate action.
