Dear Sir,

RE: Transfer Reference # IET084332687

It has come to our notice through our security/intelligence monitoring network, that Unity Bank Plc Nigeria has transferred the sum of Twenty five million United States Dollars (US$25,000,000.00) with reference number IET084332687 to SunTrust Bank, in favour of My Name Account #[b] xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx[/b]. The said transfer was carried out on August 27th, 2014

After due investigation, we discovered that the transfer was made without following International Fund Transfer Regulations/Policy aimed at fighting global terrorism, which stipulate/mandates that the fund being transferred must duly be cleared by obtaining Anti Terrorism Clearance, Anti Money Laundering Clearance as well as Certificate of Origin of Fund before the fund is transferred. Considering that there is no back up documents for this transaction, further and final credit of the fund to your account has been put on hold.

You are therefore urgently advised to submit clearance documents for this fund, to enable us release the fund to your account. However, if you do not have these documents, you have to immediately obtain them through this office, otherwise, your fund will be impounded.

Yours sincerely,
James Comey.

The FBI doesn't do that, the phone number is not in Washington, and the phone number even says 419. Please post the headers of the email. If that is your real account number, show the email to your bank and ask the fraud department what to do. Someone having your account number is not a real danger (it's on every check you write), but a scammer having your account could send fraudulent transfers.

Apparently Lyndon Johnson ( former President?) also used to use that exact phone # :smile:

That guy was also scamming using that phone # months ago.
