Courier and security company scams involves a pending delivery from courier companies like FedEx, DHL, TNT Express, United Parcel Service, United States Postal Service or from a so-called fictitious security company. The modality often involves the need to deliver an ATM or credit card to you preloaded with a large sum of money. Other modalities, usually involving a fake security company, will discuss the delivery of a large consignment of money in cash packaged in some sort of case or perhaps a trunk box. There is of course no money that exists at all with these scams.
In all cases though these scams involve a type of fraudulent criminal practice known as “Advance Fee Fraud”, a.k.a. “419 Scams”. If you are not yet familiar with these two terms then the following article on Wikipedia can help you to understand more about how most of these types of scams operate: Wikipedia Link
