I received the following email, supposedly from the FBI. Apparantly the FBI servers were down, so they had to use the ol' fallback - Juno.

FBI

From:
"fbi"

To:
undisclosed-recipients
Anti-Terrorist and Money Laundry Crimes Division
FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C.
Federal Bureau Of Investigation
J. Edgar Hoover building 935
Pennsylvania avenue, NW Washington,

Attention:



This is an official advice from the FBI, Foreign Remittance/Telegraphic Dept.(FRTD), it has come to our notice that the ADB (African Development Bank) and C.B.N (CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA) Africa has released your part of inheritance/contract payment of 10,500,000.00 U.S dollars into a bank in your name as the beneficiary.

The bank in Africa knowing fully well that they do not have enough facilities to effect this payment from Europe to your account, used what we know as a secret diplomatic transit payment S.T.D.P to pay this fund through wire transfer. They are still waiting for final confirmation from you on the already transferred funds, to enable them crediting into your account accordingly. Secret diplomatic transfer payment are normally funds related to drug/terrorist and money laundry system of payment, why must your payment be made in such secret transfer , if your transaction is legitimate and not related to drug/terrorist and money laundry, why can't the bank in Africa via Europe effect direct transfer into your account than secret diplomatic payment transfer.

Due to the increased difficulties and unnecessary scrutiny by the American authorities when funds come from through such payment process from Europe, Africa and Middle East, based on the records we had in the past always identified such method of payment as drug/ terrorist/money laundry funds, to avoid problem with the US government as soon as these funds reflect in your account in the U.S.A, it is our mandatory obligations to ascertain the documentation and certification of this funds before the final crediting into your account.

We advice you contact us immediately, as the funds have been stopped and held in our custody pending when you were able to provide us with a diplomatic immunity seal of transfer (dist) within 3 days from the United Nation international fund monitory unit (UNIFMU) that authorize the transfer and certified that the funds originated from Africa and middle east is free from terrorist/drug and money laundry or we shall confiscate the payment. We will allow the funds to be release into your account immediately you make provision the required document.

You will be directed where and how to get the document if it is not in your possession.

Yours faithfully,

FBI director
Robert s. Mueller iii

I'm hoping you forwarded this to the FBI. They'd have fun with it. Though chances are the source will backtrace to a Nigerian prince - or maybe the prince will just be angry that the FBI stole his shtick.

I got one like that too. I DID forward it to the FBI... haven't heard anything yet.

I'm not so sure anyone cares about any of these scammers. I've gotten "postal" money orders that looked as real as any you'd buy at the post office. Took them in to the P.O., again, nothing.

The rot is at every level.
