    I just received an email stating almost the very same thing! It looks so official because it says it is from the FBI at the J. Edgar Hoover Bldg. Please, Please, Please, never give any information to those people. It is one of the biggest scams ever.

    ATTENTION: SIR/MADAM


    Date: 13/09/2009


    This is an official advice from the FBI foreign Remittance /

    Telegraphic Dept. it has come to our notice that the C.B.N Bank

    Nigeria district has released 10, 500, 000.00 US dollars into

    bank of America in your name as the beneficiary, by inheritance

    means. The C.B.N Bank Nigeria knowing fully well that they do

    not have Enough facilities to effect this payment from the

    united kingdom 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 used this means to complete the payment.


    They are still, waiting for confirmation from you on the

    already Transferred funds which were made in direct transfer so

    that they can do final crediting to your account. Secret

    diplomatic payments are not made unless the funds are related

    to terrorist activities why must your payment be made in secret

    transfer, if your transaction is legitimate, if you are not a

    terrorist, thenwhy did you not receive the money directly into

    your account; this is a pure coded, means of payment?


    Records which we have had 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 the U.S.A, so 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 unnecessary security by the

    American authorities when funds come from outside of Europe,

    and the Middle East, the FBI bank commission for Europe has

    stopped the transfer on its way to deliver payment of

    $10, 500, 000.00- 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 advice you contact us immediately, as the funds have been

    Stopped and are being held in our custody, until you can be

    able to provide us with a diplomatic immunity seal of transfer

    (dist) within 3 days from the world local bank that authorize

    the transfer from where the funds was transferred from to

    certify that the funds that you are about to receive from

    Nigeria are antiterrorist/drug free or we shall have cause to

    cross and impound the Payment, we shall release the funds

    immediately we receive this legal documents.

    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, we want to make sure is a clean and legal money you

    are about to receive. Be informed that the fund is now in

    United State in your name, but right now we have ask the bank

    not to release the fund to anybody that comes to them unless we

    ask them to do so, because we have to carry out our

    investigations first before releasing the fund to you. Note

    that the fund is in the BANK OF AMERICA right now, but we have

    ask them not to credit the fund to you yet, because we need a

    solid proof and Verifications from you before releasing the

    funds.


    So to this regards you are to re-assure and proof to us that

    what you are about to receive is a clean money by sending to us

    FBI Identification Record and also Diplomatic Immunity Seal of

    Transfer (DIST) to satisfy to us that the money your about to

    receive is legitimate and real money. You are to forward the

    documents to us immediately if you have it in your possession,

    if you don’t have it let us know so that we will direct and

    inform you where to obtain the document and send to us so that

    we will ask the bank holding the funds, the Bank Of America to

    go ahead Crediting your account immediately.These Documents are

    to be issued to you from the World Local Bank that Authorized

    the transfer, so get back to us immediately if you don’t have

    the document so that we will inform you the particular place to

    obtain the document in United Kingdom (U.K) because we have

    come to realize that the fund was Authorized by (H.S.B.C) Bank

    in London.


    These Conditions is Valid until 18th of Sepember 2009 after we

    shall take actions on canceling the payment and then charge you

    for illegally moving funds out of Nigeria. Guarantee: funds

    will be released on confirmation of the document.

    Dead givaway is that the TO: is undisclosed-recipients, meaning everybody got this. There should be some way to stop these people from filling up your e mail with this crap. The threats are enough to make someone who does not know any better give up everything they own. You would think the FBI would be all over this. So much for taking care of what NEEDS to be done.

    I am sick of getting these as well. Who is going to actually do anything ab0ut it though? Obviously I am not the first to get one of these and I am probably not the first to think of forwarding it on to the REAL FBI. Since they are still sending these scam spam mails out, I guess there is nothing that our government can or will do about it.

    I realize that you're upset, but could you please refrain from using such language when posting messages on this (and other) Web sites? Children / persons under the end of 18 years old read the messages on the site. They (and adults) shouldn't be subjected to such language.

    If you want to complain about receiving SPAM, why don't you go to the Federal Trade Commission's (FTC's) Web site? The address is http://www.ftc.gov/spam/.

    Average American Mar 15, 2010

    Dear Mr. Mueller Impersonator,

    I must say, even if not so poorly written, I doubt that even the below average American would believe this incongruous attempt of deception. Although my time spent in law school should have taken away any desire to respond, I simply could not resist. Perhaps you should have researched American law before sending this e-mail. I laughed immediately after seeing "FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION SEEKING TO WIRETAP INTERNET." If you would research the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968, starting with Chapter 18 of the United States Code Annotated, Section 2510, you would understand (after reading only as far as the 4th line) how truly absurd this e-mail is. I sincerely hope that one day I will have the opportunity to be the opposing counsel when you finally receive your (incredibly deserved) day in court.

    May you have the opportunity to suffer from the sentencing and sanctions of the United States Court System!


    Sincerely,
    Another Underestimated Average American

    I just wish they would get this nipped in the bud. I am tired of opening my e-mail and finding it bombarded with over 4 of these a day. Each one from the same e-mail, same name, and same forwarding address. It's dumbing and irritating. If their site is being hacked and e-mail addresses being tampered, you would think them able to stop and or prevent such actions from taking place. It's making me feel that if our government can't get this under control, then we will never be safe.

    I have no money ... If I did I would not have to go to churches for help because Social Security cut my check in half because of Medicare Premiums that the State of Missouri was suppose to take over but they are behind ... I don't have money to pay my Rent, I have shut off Notices for Gas, Water and Electric and no Food to top it off ... I have trouble getting my Medicine that I need for COPD, Asthma, 2 Ulcers and I have a whole in my Heart plus my Left Valve is not working right .. Not to mention I got an Eviction Notice Yesterday ... I have been on Disability since 2003 ... so if I had Money I would not be having this much trouble and Social Security has my account information that is Government they would know if I had that much money and I would not be on Disability anymore ... I swear, People now days they think they are the only ones that can look up things on the Internet ... this is crazy the Government needs to get this Guy ...

    DATE: 4/8/2010


    It has been discovered that your contract/inheritance/winning FUND was about being transferred to an unknown account under your name. This attempt was perpetrated by someone who claims to be working for you, and that you have given him due authority to have the FUND moved to the account specified below:

    SOUTHWESTERN FEDERAL CREDIT UNION
    WESCORP 924 OVERLAND COURT
    SAN DIMAS, CA 91772. USA.
    ACCOUNT NUMBER: [protected]
    ABA/ROUTING NUMBER: [protected]
    SHARETYPE NO.: 25
    FINAL CREDIT HABIB FENZI AND CO. (Beneficiary).


    The Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.) waded in after being alerted by the supposed bank. We investigated and found that there is a possible money laundering activity in play.The FUND US$10, 500, 000.00(Ten Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) was found to be deposited in Bank of America in your name pending your consent to have it transferred to the new account indicated above. It was further revealed that initial FUND transfer originated from Nigeria to England and now here in Bank of America in USA.


    These transfers did not follow due process in line with the international FUND transfer rules and regulation.Consequently, we suspect this be a terrorism funding, drug related fund deposit and/or money laundering. As stated above, the FUND has your name on it; and you must have it cleared of any connection with any of these illegal

    Wow. I suppose that illiteracy is such in the U.S. that many would not suspect anything awry in the first scam letter, exhibited above. If I were to see a real FBI correspondence with such butchery of the Queen's English, I'd say that we need to send all agents to a remedial English course. It is appalling that so many people with money are actually scammed in this manner.
