Parcel is expecting of receiving

Hmm. Wonder what's in this official-looking email from "USPS"?


We couldn’t deliver your parcel at your address.
Status\It’s not right specified size and the weight of parcel.

Pesky parcel! How can I reclaim it?

... Label is enclosed to the letter. You should print the label and show it in the nearest post office to get a parcel.

What a relief! Unless ...

An additional information
If the parcel isn’t received within 30 working days our company will have the right to claim compensation from you for it's keeping in the amount of $15.43 for each day of keeping.

Kids, I know it isn't always clear that J-school has a great claim on your education dollar. But if email scamming is your career goal, you can at least count on us to explain why "
it’s not right specified size and the weight of parcel" will fail to separate you from the pack, first-job-application-wise.

There is some evidence (sorry, no pointers) to suggest that broken English is actually more successful at pulling the marks in than proper is. (I don't know if that's because the marks who fall for it also have poor language skills and don't spot the error, or if that's been explored at all.)

Depending on the precise scam - not this one, I'd think - broken English makes the mark think he can outwit the scammer. This is especially true whent the conman is portraying someone who's trying to get help to rip off his bank..
