I was a Federal Special Agent for 28 years and then head of a nationally awarded Consumer Protection Agency for 10 years. I am stunned, as I read these questions, to see that there are people so dumb, not naive, to believe any of this has any remote chance of being true. Are you really stupid enough to beleve that some stranger, who can't spell, represents a bank, an individual or a governmenti in a 3rd world country picked you out of 230 million people in the US and wants to pay you 2 to 25 million dollars?

If you do, then god bless you and please self admit yourself for mental health care and put control of all your finances in your parents or childrens names.

Ive also been receiving these emails. I knew it was a scam so I emailed them back saying I was contacting investigators and all this other stuff I was saying to them. Now they are saying they have my full address and are coming to arrest me if I dont pay the 46.00 so I can have my funds transferred. They sent me a very threatening email this time in response to the one I sent them. I would like to know how I go about getting them in trouble for this. I believe this has something to do w/ the target and walgreens being hacked into that they got all of our emails.

I have also recieved these same type messages and im pretty sure its a scam. Lately I have been on my toes about these kind of scams anyways because my mom just recently had her identity stolen and they took over 3000 dollars from her bank account, supposedly they made a pwithdrawl in dubai at a hotel for one dollar (you can't withdrawl this amount only in sums of 20) and thats how they got into her account. Obviously everyone just needs to watch and protect thier money appropiately.

Dear Friends,
We need not be geniuses to understand the simple logic - 'no pain-no money'. The so called scammers are capitalising on our own greed for money. They are smart enough to devise new methods of cheating, but we sould be smart & wise enough to steer away from such sweet temptations.
