I got this email today from "Fed ex online Team Management"
There are so many variations of this scam that people have to be falling for it. Why else would they still be circulated? I just don't get it.

Dear Customer,

We have been waiting for you to contact us for your Confirm-able Package
that is registered with us for shipping to your residential location. We
had thought that your sender gave you our contact details. It may interest
you to know that a letter is also added to your package.

We understand that the content of your package itself is a Bank Draft
worth of Seven Hundred and Fifty Thousand ($750,000.00 USD) United States
Dollar. FedEx do not ship money in CASH or in CHEQUES, but Bank Drafts are
shippable. The package is registered with us for mailing by your colleague
who explained
that he is from U.S.A but currently in Africa for a three (3) months
Surveying Project as he works with a consultant firm in West Africa. We
are sending you this mail because your package is been registered on a
Special Order. For your information, the VAT & Shipping charges as well as
Insurance fees has been paid by your colleague before your package was
registered. Note that the payment that is made on the Insurance, Premium
and Clearance Certificates, are to certify that the Bank Draft is not a
Drug Affiliated Fund (DAF) neither is it funds to sponsor Terrorism in
your country. This will help you avoid any form of query from the Monetary
Authority in your country.

However, you will have to pay the sum of One Hundred and Ninety Six
($196.00 USD) United States Dollar to the FedEx Delivery
Department being full payment for the Security Keeping Fee of the FedEx
company as stated in our Privacy Terms and Condition page. Please note
that packages are not shipped nor delivered on Saturdays, Sundays and on
public holidays. If your order has been placed on any of these days, then
it may be shipped the following working day. Kindly complete the below
form and send it to the FedEx Delivery Post with the below information.
This is mandatory to reconfirm your Postal Address and Telephone Number.

Full Name:
Postal Address:

FedEx Delivery Post
Email: *********
Contact Person: Mr. Larry Clinton
Phone Number: +234 807-056-4157
If you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to contact
us between Monday–Friday: 9:00am – 9:00pm EST, Saturdays: 10:00am – 5:00pm

I always send an email back to these people and ask them if I can borrow the money for the time being- after all, I am going to be getting $250k very shortly and they know I will be good for it.
