Nice.... forward it to the FTC and the FBI Computer Crimes division and let them have a good laugh..

I know I did..


There's no such thing as "the FBI Law"

secret diplomatic transit payment

Where do I get one of DESE? I want I want!!!!!! Tax Free Dollars...

top bank in the united state

What State? I wanna go, they have Money...

Finally if you truly want to receive this funds without F.B.I troubles then reconfirm the following below

This funds? Without F.B.I troubles? Even google translate would do better...


Why would someone from the Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTT) be trying to give you Money, maybe I can get some of dis money and help them write better emails..

When I get those emails, and I have had the fbi one, I forward the emails to the real fbi, or who ever they are impersonating.

Always works.

Somehow I think I would trust a Nigerian scammer long before I would ever trust the FBI.

Report it to the FBI?


EDIT: Just now read ADVISOR's post just above this one...

I would be scared spitless to do that.

I love how billionaire telecommunications companies, FBI, foreign treasury departments and such have hotmail accounts for the CEO's.

its a killer!

for the fifth time this month I've inherited millions from ancestors i never knew I had.. I swear im the luckiest guy ever. I sent the money off, but havent recieved my cheque yet, im assuming with the wars and customs and such its been delayed. No matter, I quit my job anyways, being rich now and all. So im sure when the postman drops it off ill be home to receive it personally!

I knew it was a scam as soon as I read this:

Yes, it's a scam. I conversed with one of these scammers once for my own amusement.
The people who fall for this crap deserve it.
Pathetic people, both sides. I can't begin to imagine what damage anyone with actual social engineering skills can do when things like this rake in money.

Your pretty sure it's a scam?????????

But not enough to post it for comment just in case?

Check yourself in for a reality check dude. You need someone to look at you.

Are you even posting to the correct thread? Look at the very first post and read it.

Unless somebody in my family gets kidnapped, I am content to leave the FBI out of my life. No offense.

Damn scammers.

You say that like it's a bad thing.

It's a scam. The FBI would likely contact you face to face. I receive email like this all the time. Also the picture of the FBI agent is really low quality.

posted on Jan, 18 2013 @ 01:36 AM
If any one gets kidnapped, please call Semper and I.

We will get there and help, probably before the FBI gets on scene. But, yes I only forward them so the email info is known, headers etc.

I have worked with the FBI a few times, and they are not evil suits looking to cointelpro somebody. Usually they are suspicious plain cloths fellas, who always ask me if I am an agent. Or, what I do and such, then when I try to tell them they seem to disregard it, and later they ask again if I am an agent, as if.

But then, look at it like this, as suspicious as most people are of the FBI, they seem to be that way around prior service active duty types. lol.

Same thing with the Juniper Three fiasco. Good times...

Nah, unless your laundering money for "Al gay duh", and not giving uncle Sam his cut, no one has any thing to worry about.

I've actually just re-read it and this jumped out at me:
