Here’s a scam email that’s destined for the weird files. It comes from the right honorable REV.DENIS LOPEZ and purports to contain information about a package at O’Hare Airport.

That’s right, you forget about the golden metal box that is worth almost $5.5 million dollars! It arrived ‘sometime ago’ at O’Hare from mysterious Britain and has been sitting their unclaimed ever since. All you have to do is pay the $10 a day storage fee and the valuable golden metal box will be yours for the keeping! Wow, it must be your lucky day!
Needless to say, you aren’t the only one who got this email. Your chance of actually receiving a box worth over $5 million by paying the storage fees is on par with the chance you’ll be killed by a meteor today. Actually, the chances of dying in a meteor storm are probably higher.
Make sure you delete this thing and report the email to AOL.
Protip: there’s no such thing as a free lunch or a $5 million forgotten golden box.
