    I am scared got warning from FBI office :o

    just happened to logon to my old mail account and checked if any useful mails were in spam and was shocked first when I looked in mailbox as FBI Office, its the best email I have recd. so far

    FBI HEADQUARTERS IN WASHINGTON, D.C.
    FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION
    J. EDGAR HOOVER BUILDING
    935 PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE, NW WASHINGTON,

    Attention Fund Beneficiary,


    RE: FBI NOTICE WARNING TO FUND BENEFICIARY

    This is an official advise from the FBI CRIME DEPARTMENT. It has come to our notice that the International Monetary Fund (IMF),Central Bank of Nigeria/world bank has released 10,5M US dollars into Federal Reserve Bank USA in your name as the beneficiary being for overdue Inheritant,Lottory,contract payment.

    The International Monetary Fund (IMF),Central Bank of Nigeria/world bank knowing fully well that they do not have enough facilities to effect this payment to your account, so they used what is known as secret Diplomatic transit payment (S.T.D.P) to pay this fund through wire transfer in order to complete this payment.

    They are still waiting for confirmation from you on the available Transferred funds which were made in direct transfer so that they can do final crediting to your account. Records which we have with this method of payment in the past has always been related to terrorist acts, we do not want you to get into trouble as soon as these funds reflect in your account in any part of the world. So it is our duty as a worldwide commission to correct this little problem before this fund will be credited into your personal account. Due to the increased difficulty and unnecessary security by the American authorities when funds come from Europe and the Middle East, the FBI bank commission stopped the transfer on its way to deliver

    We have decided to contact you directly to acquire the proper Verifications and proof from you to show that you are the rightful person to receive this fund, because of the amount involve. Note that the fund is in your name with Federal Reserve Bank USA, but we ask them not to credit the fund to you yet, because we need a solid proof and Verifications from you before releasing the funds. In this regards, you are to re-assure and proof to us that the funds you are about to receive is a clean money by sending to us Diplomatic Immunity Seal Of Transfer (DIST) to satisfy the FBI that the money you are about to receive is legitimate.

    You are advised to forward the DIST document to us immediately if you have it in your possession, if you don't then let us know so that we will direct and inform you where to obtain the DIST document and send it to us in order the Federal Reserve Bank USA to go ahead and release the money to you without any further delay. These Document is to be issued to you from our Authorized office.So get back to us immediately if you donít have the DIST document so that we will inform you the particular place to obtain the DIST document, because we have come to realize that the fund was Authorized by (H.S.B.C) Bank in London.

    An FBI Identification Record and 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. These Condition Is Valid until 30th OCTOBER, 2009 After that, we shall take actions on Canceling the payment and then charge you for illegal funds transfer from Nigerian government.

    GUARANTEE: funds will be released on confirmation of the document.
    1. Credit payment instruction: irrevocable credit guarantee.
    2. Beneficiary has full power when validation is cleared.
    3. Beneficiaries bank in U.S.A., 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 asked for the above documents to make available the most complete and up-to date 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 Documents to us, we will charge you with the FBI and take our proper action against you for not proofing to us the legitimate of the fund you are about to receive. The United States 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 Services (CJIS) Division processes these requests to check illegal activities in U.S.A

    We wait for your prompt response

    ROFL. It is hilarious but I have to say it is practically completely illiterate so that alone should make it way way to obviously a scam for anyone to consider, "good". Mind you, the level of literacy per se is abysmally low so perhaps someone may be fooled.

    Good to know the FBI is looking out for you best interest.
    So well in fact the Director himself is taking care of it for you.

    Maybe drop that email along with a thank you note to their cyber crimes division I am sure they would love to know how much you appreciate the Director helping you out and all.

    Better than most Nigerian scam emails I have seen to date. Most look like they were translated via babblefish... I'd bet if babblefish was shut down, you'd see a 90% reduction in Nigerian spams

    unnecessary security by the American authorities- wow, "FBI folks", next time please make sure to google. FBi is in the US and they are not private agency
    FBI bank commission stopped the transfer on its way to deliver- FBI Bank comission. Why not FBI bank? Seems ridiculous.
    Anyway, funny email.

    Spammers keep getting worse by the day. I've gotten this one, as well as several "IRS notices" claiming you have unpaid income taxes and they need all of your personal information or you'll be thrown in jail. They even use a random name and account number, it would be more realistic-looking if they just left that out.
