    Heads up on a new scam coming out of Nigeria.  Below is an email I just received.

    Anti-Terrorist and Monetary Crimes Division
    Fbi Headquarters In Washington, D.C.
    Federal Bureau Of Investigation
    J. Edgar Hoover Building
    935 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW Washington,
    D.C. 20535-0001

    Urgent Attention

    I have warned you nemerously and you have decided to ignore our e-mails because you believe we have decided to get you arrested. If you fail to respond back to us with the payment, we would firstof all send a letter to the mayor of the city where you resided and direct them to close your bank account and all your properties will be confiscated too. We would also send a letter to the company/agency that you works with so that they could get you fired until we are through with our investigations because a suspect is not suppose to be working for the government or any private organization/company.

    Your id which we have in our database has been sent to all the crimes agencies in America for them to insert you in their website as an internet fraudsters and to warn people from having any deals with you. This would have been solved all this while if you had gotten the certificate signed, endorsed and stamped as you were instructed on the e-mail below. I am using this medium to inform you that there is no more time left to waste. As stated earlier to have the document endorsed, signed and stamped without failure and you must adhere to this directives to avoid you blaming yourself at last when we must have arrested and jailed you and have your properties confiscated. If You fail to comply with our directives your I.D. will be placed on our website as a wanted person. I believe you know that it will be a shame to you and your entire family because it will be announced in all the local channels that you are wanted by the fbi.

    As a good Christian and a honest man, I decided to see how i could be of help to you because i will not be happy to see you end up in jail and all your properties confiscated, because your information's was used to carry out a fraudulent transactions. I called the EFCC and they directed me to their acreditted pattorney who can help you get the process done and he stated that he will endorse and sign the document at the sum of 125 usd only and i believe this process is cheaper for you. You need to do everything possible within today and tomorrow to get this process done because a warrant of arrest will be signed against you if you did not comply, then the arrest will be carried out. From our investigations, we learnt that you were the person that forwarded your identity to one impostors/fraudsters in Nigeria when they had a deal with you about the transfer of some illegal funds into your bank account. You will make the payment through western union money transfer with the below details.

    AMOUNT: $125
    Senders Name======

    Send the payment details such as; senders name and address, mtcn number used and the amount sent. Make sure that you didn't hesitate making the payment today so that they could have the certificate endorsed, signed and stamped immediately without any further delay. Then we would have to proceed to the bank for the transfer of your funds which valued at the sum of $10.500,000.00 usd only.

    Note: All the crimes agencies have been contacted on this regards and we shall trace and arrest you if you disregard this instructions. You are given a grace today and tomorrow to make the payment for the document to be signed but failure to do that will attract a maximum arrest and finally you will be appearing in court for conduction of terrorism, money laundering and drug trafficking.

    Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.

    Yours In Service,

    But I wonder how many people really do fall for their scams. I had a friend that was really going to try to help one he got a email from until I told him it was a scam to separate him from his bank account information.

    I guess the FBI doesn't use spell check either.

    The African branch of the Federal Bureau of Inbreeds has access to the internet now, I guess

    I don't know how many fall for these scams but I do know these people are good.  I got me once and I have targeted several more times since.  Even that FBI one has been sent to me several times.

    I managered to talk with one of the scammers overseas in Africa someone where and this guy looks at himself as some sort of hero for being clever enough to get people's money without being caught.

    Robert Mueller doesn't make a habit out of bullying Americans into sending money to foreign countries to settle FBI criminal investigations big_smile  If you are or were a former government employee, you've probably already got a mess of letters from FBI Nigeria - I stopped opening anything from them, or anything from supposed bankers in Britain (for some reason?? I'm not British) telling me to come and get my money.

      This is a new twist on the Nigerian scam. It appeared in my email as coming from Robert Mueller directly.   I have had threats to report me to authorities due to my hub content so for a second I thought it was genuine.

      I have made sure that nothing in my hubs violates anyones policies let alone actually break the law.

    This is a new one to me.

    If you are not mentally handicapped and you fall for this one, you deserve it.

    I can see people falling for the Nigerian "help me get this money that is frozen" thing, but this takes the cake.

    If you are an educated or law abiding person and you fall for this, consider it a Stupid Tax.

    These guys are good aren't they?  they only need less than a fraction to take action and they win. Email providers may start to ban emails originating from Africa (Nigeria) but then there are proxies. People just need to be smart overall.

    oddly enough, Nigerians themselves are a very suspicious lot...

    I have nemerously fallen victim firstof to these scams from the crimes agencys. Just like the times I had visit from the doctor of fertilization in house off craig's list.

    I think there needs to be some universal 'common sense' guide taught in schools and referenced often in all major websites.

    There was a guy posing as a fertility doctor on craigslist in Phoenix. People would email him and he would show up for house visits with a stethoscope, massage table, lab vest, and black medical bag. All of a sudden these people got angry for getting scammed...

    And what's the deal with the $10,500,000?  Is this guy saying, Pay me $125 right away and then I'll release the $10,500,000 money that you have laundered or stolen?  Or is he saying that amount will be turned over to the law?  That part makes even less sense than the rest of the e-mail.

    Well, at least I learned a new word: Nemerously.  lol GUFFAW lol

      Don't you remember Reality? When you hurt your back, you got those pain relievers(drugs). You had an adverse reaction and ended up ironing all your money(laundering) on the sidewalk in front of your neighbors, which caused them to panic(terror).

      Ban pain relievers, IMO.
