Interesting email that is apparently floating around! :screwy:

Anti-Terrorist And Monetary Crimes Division
FBI Headquarters, Washington, D.C.
Federal Bureau Of Investigation
J.Edgar Hoover Building
935 Pennsylvania Avenue, Nw Washington, D.C. 20535-0001
Attention:Honorable Beneficiary,

This is to inform you that it has come to the notice of the federal bureau of investigation (FBI) that the sum of $10.5 million united states dollars were transferred from the central bank of Nigeria to the bank of America here in the united states, bearing your name as the beneficiary.

We did not believe this at first until we saw the transfer, then we had no other option than to place the funds on hold until you are able to prove to us that you are not a terrorist or a money launderer, by obtaining what is called a diplomatic immunity seal of transfer certificate from the funds originated country.

Note that we have done a proper investigation on this transaction and from our investigation, this funds truly belongs to you and it is not a scam, but we have instructed the bank of America not to release the $10.5 million to you until you prove the legitimacy of the funds you are about to receive.

As a matter of fact, you will be charged for money laundering and terrorism, if you fail to prove to us that you are not a terrorist or a money launderer by obtaining the above mentioned certificate from the funds originated country,and if you are found guilty as charged, you will go to jail.

You have just only 72 hours to prove to us you are not a terrorist, failure to comply with our instruction, you will be arrested and detained until this matter is settled. Meanwhile we have your full contact address which makes it easier for us to arrest you when ever we want to.

We are going to direct you on how to obtain the required document from the funds originated country in our next email to you, and your $10.5 million will be released to you as soon as the required document is obtained.

Therefore you have been advised to get back to us immediately you receive this email or you will be arrested by the FBI, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

For more information's and quick response, reply back to us through this email address: ([email protected])

YOURS FAITHFULLY,
Mr. Robert S. Mueller, III
Director Federal Bureau of Investigation

Agree with Coffeemate on this one...


If this were a legit letter, the Feds would just scoop you up, not give you a head start :lol:

It's been around for a bit, Google DIST scam.

I would think as educated as Director Mueller is, he wouldn't use Engrish in a couple places (not a mispelling, Google that too).

Nice to know the FBI Director is a very hands on kind of guy.

What suprises me, is it obviously most work on some people. A reasonable person would assume if it didn't, they wouldn't keep sending out the message over and over to try and snare someone in.

Of course, maybe I just proved my own problem when I used the phrase "reasonable person" and assume in the same sentence.

Seems legit, you'd better respond before you end up on a list.
