I received this today,I don't know what to make of it.Any ideas?

From: Federal Bureau of Investigation Dept: Anti-Terrorist & Monetary Crimes Division Office: Washington, D.C. Headquarters Address: J. Edgar Hoover Building 93 Pennsylvania Avenue, Nw Washington, D.C. 20535-0001 Attention: This is to officially inform you that a foreign bank from West Africa have transferred funds worth Millions of United States Dollars with your name as the beneficiary. This foreign bank knows that they do not have enough facilities to effect this payment from their location to your account and therefore they used what is known as Secret Diplomatic Transit Payment (S.T.D.P) to do this transfer and they are currently awaiting a confirmation from you for final crediting to your account. Secret diplomatic payments are not made unless the funds are related to terrorist activities, so if you are not intending to finance terrorism and your transaction is legitimate, why then did you agree to receive these funds through this means that was used instead of a direct transfer to your account? Our findings shows that this method of transfer was used in the past to finance terrorist acts, so there is need to correct this problem now to avoid you getting into trouble when the funds reflects in your account. Under the United Nations monetary rules it is our duty as a world wide commission to correct this little problem before this fund will be credited into your personal account. Due to the increased difficulty and security measures set up by the United States for the transfer of funds from foreign banks, the FBI foreign bank commission have stopped the transfer on its way to debit your reserve account and pay you through a secured diplomatic transit account (S.D.T.A) We govern and oversee funds transfer for the World Bank and the rest of the world. We have decided to contact you directly to acquire the proper Verifications and proof from you in order to ensure that the money you are about to receive is clean and legal . The funds are right here in United State in your name, but the bank has been instructed not to release the funds to anybody until we have finalized our investigations. Note that the funds will not be credited into your personal account until the needed document is provided. Your duty is to proof to us that the funds you are about to receive is a clean and the only way to proof that is by sending us this Diplomatic Immunity Seal Of Transfer(DIST). You are to forward this document to us immediately if you have it in your possession, if you don't have it let us know so that we will direct you to where you will obtain it so that your funds can be released. This document is to be issued to you from the location of the foreign bank to effect your funds transfer. The Diplomatic Immunity Seal Of Transfer (DIST) often referred to as a Criminal History Record or Rap Sheet, is a listing of certain information taken from fingerprint submissions retained by the FBI in connection with arrests and, in some instances, federal employment, naturalization, or military service. This Condition is Valid until 3 days after which the funds shall be confiscated and legal action will be taken against you. Guarantee: Funds will be released upon confirmation of the DIST document. -------------------------------------------------------------------- Final Instruction; 1. Credit payment instruction: irrevocable credit guarantee. 2. Beneficiary has full power when validation is cleared. 3. Beneficiaries bank in can only release funds. 4. Upon confirmation from the world bank / united nations. 5. Bearers must clear bank protocol and validation request. -------------------------------------------------------------------- NOTE: We have requested for the DIST document to make available the most complete and update records possible for the enhancement of public safety, welfare and security of Society while recognizing the importance of individual privacy rights. If you fail to provide the Document to us, we will charge you with the financial crimes. The United Nations Department of Justice Order 556-73 establishes rules and regulations for the subject of an FBI Identification Record to obtain a copy of his or her own Record for review. The FBI Criminal Justice Information Service (CJIS) Division processes these requests to check illegal activities. ROBERT S. MUELLER III, FBI Director.

It is a scam and has happened before. I myself have gotten a few of them. The one thing to remember is this... IF the FBI wanted to talk to you about anything at all they would NOT email you. They never have and never do.


( That is what I was told when I called to ask why the heck I was getting hauled into something like that
)

You might want to send a copy of it to Snopes to add to their collection if - on the very off chance - they've never seen that particular one before.

you might want to notify your state attorney general of the scam. Some states are working with the feds to try and bust some of these scams.

No problem.


I have received similar F.B.I. e-mail's no less than five times.

The first time, I was concerned, stopped to think about it, and left it alone.

Read my posts about it on the other link as I go into detail there.

You will notice with these types of e-mail's, the spelling is off, the grammar is off, and the people are questionable.

I began screwing with the scammers by e-mailing them back.

They do not seem to understand that this is a big joke on them now.

Or if you've got the cojones, you might like to go for a little scam baiting escapade. See 419 Eater for examples of successful scam baiting, discussion, tips, and appropriate warnings against the idea.

Actually, it's the US Secret Service that investigates international currency transfers.

No matter.

Neither agency uses email is an official source of communication outside it's own agency.

If they want to talk to you, they will knock on your door (if they don't bust it down) and talk to you.

Why can't we call the CIA to handle this? I have a number of email addresses. One is for spam. One is personal. One is for business. And afew are for companies I don't fully trust.

When I get more then 5 spams a day in my "trusted" email boxes, I change them.

Yes, that is definitely a scam e-mail. I have gotten several of those, also! When you get something like that, just do a search, and type in "scam" and a phrase from the e-mail, or some keywords, etc., and there will be several websites that will tell you it is a scam, etc, and they will usually post the exact e-mail that you got.
