What Are Courier, Delivery & Security Company Scams?

Post by Roxy »

Courier, delivery, 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”.
