Default The FBI is looking out for me

Thanks to the FBI, I know now why I haven't gotten any of my inheritances that I was promised via email. They sent me this recently:

Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
Anti-Terrorist And Monitory Crime Division.
J.Edgar. Hoover Building Washington D.C.
Customers Service Hours / Monday To Saturday For more information call during working period Telephone number: 2033330996

Attn: Beneficiary,

This is to officially inform you that it has come to our notice and we have thoroughly investigated with the help of our Intelligence Monitoring Network System that you are having an illegal transaction with impostors claiming to be Prof. Charles C. Soludo of the Central Bank Of Nigeria, Mr. Kelvin Williams, Zenith Banks, Mr. Michell Brown From union bank, kelvin Young of HSBC, Ben of FedEx,Ibrahim Sule,Larry Christopher, puppy scammers are impostors claiming to be the Federal Bureau Of Investigation.

During our Investigation, we noticed that the reason why you have not received your payment is because you have not fulfilled your financial obligation given to you in respect of your Contract / Inheritance payment, and also the wrong people that you have been dealing with earlier.

Therefore, we have contacted the Federal Ministry Of Finance on your behalf and they have brought a solution to your problem by coordinating your payment in total US$11million in an ATM CARD which you can use to withdraw money from any ATM MACHINE CENTER anywhere in the world with a maximum of US$3,000 per daily withdrawal.

You now have the lawful right to claim your fund in an ATM CARD. Since the Federal Bureau of Investigation is involved in this transaction, you have to be rest assured for this is 100% risk free it is our duty to protect the American Citizens. All i want you to do is to contact the ATM CARD CENTER via email for their requirements to proceed for the delivery of your ATM card, and it will cost you US$135 only and note that without this payment your ATM card cannot be delivered to your doorstep.


Glad to see my tax dollars are at work to help me. I will soon be rolling in the money.

In case there is any question, I am being sarcastic.

Oh goodness I love that idea! My forwards will probably bounce back all over the place, but I'll still feel pretty good :-)

I got the best one EVER a few weeks ago. Though I'd share since this thread got bumped. My god I hope someone doesn't fall for this one.

Went something like this:

From: Yourassasin@hotmail.uk
Subject: Your impending demise

You friend has paid me to kill you. My boys have been watching you.
I feel guilt now. If you pay more then what your friend paid me I will let you live.
