"I left Your Money at The Courier Service"
or "Security Company" Scam
GLOBAL COURIER SERVICE COMPANY {G.C.S.C}
"Mr. Rev Dave Blair", "Rev Dave"
Mr. Rev Dave Blair (Frauder) > [GLOBAL COURIER SERVICE <info@globalcourier-delivery.firm.org.uk]

If you receive an email from Mr. Rev Dave Blair claiming they hadn't heard from you, or owed you money, and left it at "GLOBAL COURIER SERVICE COMPANY {G.C.S.C}", and now you need to contact Rev Dave to recover the money; well, by now you should immediately recognize it as a scam.  Why would someone you don't know owe you a huge sum of money, and leave it at a "courier" or a "security company or "GLOBAL COURIER SERVICE COMPANY {G.C.S.C}" and tell you to contact Rev Dave in order to retrieve?  It simply makes no sense.  You should immediately dismiss it as a scam.

However, if you really have a desire to be a victim, and are saying to yourself "but, but, but... what if I just forgot that I'm owed a huge sum of money, or maybe they got me by mistake and will still send me the money".  Well, first, we'll tell you that's just pathetic.

Next ask yourself why Rev Dave, who presumably works at "GLOBAL COURIER SERVICE COMPANY {G.C.S.C}" is having you write to him at "eee". Shouldn't he have a real company address like "Rev Dave@GLOBAL COURIER SERVICE COMPANY {G.C.S.C}.com" ?

Here are some other clues to the scam:

  • Pigeon English - Notice that as the scammer gets past the initial template email and must write free-form, how his grammar, spelling and basic sentence structure go straight in the toilet.  The scammers don't even know how to use spell checkers.  After all, this is a stupid, low-life criminal in the heart of Africa, who probably dropped out of school at age 5 to join a gang or militia. Obviously, real businesses proofread their emails; they look and read more professional.

  • Using free email account: The scammer is writing to you from a FREE email account (Yahoo, Hotmail, Excite, AIM, Gmail, etc.).  Don't you think a real organization would use its own email, its own domain and website?

  • "GLOBAL COURIER SERVICE COMPANY {G.C.S.C}" - Have you ever heard of GLOBAL COURIER SERVICE COMPANY {G.C.S.C}? What is it's website?  Why wasn't that in the email?


Actual scam reply email (One example - the scammers constantly change names, dates and addresses!):
