A new twist on the classic Nigerian scam emerged this week with the discovery of an email that offers gullible web users access to supposedly secret KGB files on the John F. Kennedy assassination.
The scam, which was discovered by security company Sophos, is believed to be targeting conspiracy theorists who might be tricked into handing over money or confidential data to get their hands on the report.
The JFK scam begins with a spam email claiming to come from a dying KGB agent offering declassified CIA documents, files from the former KGB and interviews with those who know the real story behind the Kennedy assassination.
"I am a former KGB agent. I am too old and seriously ill to fight for the truth. I am dying from a blood disease. I hope you are the person to help me reach my goal. It will bring you fame. Calmness for me," the email reads.
