Considering I have never responded to any of the scammers and I have no connection with anything criminal this one gave me quite a chuckle, if they want to come and arrest me bring it on. I think that if someone didn’t understand they could be sucked into this one since no one wants and trouble with the FBI, I think this should be forwarded to the FBI but the problem is it comes from a yahoo.co.uk (United Kingdom yahoo account) and the FBI is for domestic crime. A heads up on what to do would be appreciated, I have a problem with being threatened by anyone especially a crook. [email protected] this address does show up in the headers so the FBI might be interested.

OFFICIAL WARNING
Friday, July 17, 2009 3:22 PM
From: "Robert Mueller" <[email protected]>

DATE: 07/17/2009

ATTENTION: Fund Beneficiary.

OFFICIAL WARNING FROM THE FBI FOREIGN REMITTANCE/TELEGRAPHIC DEPT.:

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 new account.

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$12,000,000.00) was found to be
deposited in Bank of America in your name pending your consent to have it
transferred to the new account. 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
activities. Be informed that FAILURE to have this cleared out will attract a
JAIL TERM. We will not hesitate to visit the full weight of the law upon you
if you do not clear this fund. There is every indication that you are involved
in this shady deal.

Finally, you are expected to have the CLEARANCE DOCUMENT obtain from where the
FUND originated from to have you and your fund cleared. Only then shall we
release your FUND as clean money devoid of any illegality, and you will be
free of any involvement. Contact me as soon as possible for any question and further

clarification.
Note that you have 72hrs to obtain this crucial Documentation.
This has to be cleared! You are warned!

Faithfully Yours

Just ignore it. http://www.ic3.gov only asks for reports if you've actually been scammed.
The use of a yahoo.co.uk doesn't mean a UK scammer. West Africa is far more likely.

FUND BENEFICIARY,

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, then why 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 f.b.i 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 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 are 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? 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? 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. An FBI Identification Record and Diplomatic Immunity Seal Of Transfer (DIST) often referred to as a Criminal History Record or Rap Sheet, is a listing of certain information taken from fingerprint submissions retained by the FBI in connection with arrests and, in some instances, federal employment, naturalization, or military service.

The fact that he is refering me to a gmail address makes this a questionable email, but then again this Muller character has become something to laugh at.

They also told us that the only problem they are facing right now is that some unscrupulous element are using this project as an avenue to scam innocent people off their hard earned money by impersonating the Executive Governor and the Central Bank office.

We were also made to understand that a lady with name Mrs. Joan C. Bailey from OHIO has already contacted them and also presented to them all the necessary documentations evidencing your claim purported to have been signed personally by prior to the release of your contract fund valued at about US$44,000,000.00 (Forty Four Million United States Dollars), but the Central Bank office did the wise thing by insisting on hearing from you personally before they go ahead on wiring your fund to the Bank information?s which was forwarded to them by the above named Lady, so that was the main reason why they contacted us so as to investigations.

They further informed us that we should warn our dear citizens who must have been informed of the contract payment which was awarded to them from the Central Bank of Nigeria, to be very careful prior to these irregularities so that they don't fall victim to this ugly circumstance anymore.

Everything before the highlighted area is bogus. You can put anything at all where the www should go and all it does is take you to the last part.

Seems our FBI guys is getting smarter. He even puts in that there is a fee in the email. I guess he thinks people will be less suspicious if they know a fee is coming in advance.

Hi everyone,
I googled and came across this site after I got a letter I was sure was a scam.
I notice that the reply to is a gmail address, like we are too stupid to notice that! lol
And the "to" section is blank which means it was BCC'ed to many people.

Hi MinAZ, Thanks for posting this information. It may help to prevent others from losing money to these criminals. Though the majority of us can spot these fake FBI emails as scams immediately, considering the number of similar type scams going around there must be some people who do fall for it. It may be as a result of desperation, faith in authority figures or myriad other reasons. We hope that at least those who suspect these messages are phoney are able to find forum threads like this to back up their suspicions.
