Agent John Edward of the F.B.I. has contacted me via Email (What should I do?)
Email | 8/12/2011 7:00 PM | Agent John Edward

Posted on 08/12/2011 6:00:44 PM PDT by Mad Dawgg

OK FReepers we may have Hugh and Series situation here! I received this email just afew moments ago and I need help in deciding what to do!

Here is the email and its from the VERY OFFICIAL EMAIL address: agentjohnedwar2@globomail.com

Federal Bureau Of Investigation

Intelligence Field Unit

J. Edgar Hoover Building

935 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW Washington , D.C.

Urgent Attention:

I am special Agent John Edward from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) intelligence unit; we have just intercepted (2) trunk boxes at JFK airport New York , we are on the verge of moving them to our bureau head quarters. We started monitoring and checkmating movement of consignments after the killing of Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, many people are virtually involve in sponsorship of terrorism knowingly and unknowingly since they participate in unsolicited and security unchecked transactions which sometimes the aftermath effect of unclaimed funds becomes wheel power for terrorist sponsorship.

We have scanned those two trunk boxes and discovered the value is $5.7 Million Dollars and the backup document bears your name as the receiver of the money contained in the boxes and your email address is on the delivery manifest booklet plastered on the two trunk boxes , investigations / interrogation carried out on the diplomat that accompanied the boxes into the united states has it that he was to deliver this funds to your residence as payment which was due to you as unpaid lottery .Our priorities are tactically stated below. Some people have been victimizing over the years but our inception has corrected worst crime situations in and outside American.

Protect the United States and the rest of the world from terrorist attacks (see counter-terrorism);Protect the United States against foreign intelligence operations and espionage (see counter-intelligence); Protect the United States against cyber-based attacks and high-technology crimes (see cyber-warfare); Combat public corruption at all levels;

Protect civil rights; Combat transnational/national criminal organizations and enterprises (see organized crime); Combat major white-collar crime; Combat significant violent crime; Support federal, state, local and international partners;

We checked all legal documents in the boxes, and were about to release the consignments to the diplomat, when we found out that the boxes lack two very important documents Legal Clearance Certificate and Fund Ownership Certificate which as a result, the boxes was kept under security vault until you provide those required compulsory demanded due process documents According to section 229 subsection 31 of the 1991 constitution in tax payment, your consignment lacks proof of ownership certificate and legal clearance certificate from the joint team of the IRS and homeland security, and there for, you must contact us for direction and advise on how to procure the certificates, so that you can be relieved of the charges of evading tax and consignment abandonment which is a punishable offense under section 12 subsection 441 of constitution on tax evasion and unsolicited movement of consignments to any country all over the world.

You are required within the next 72hours to secure those above mentioned certificates or face the legal consequence defined for such delivery infringement, to avoid interrogation and prosecution in the court of law for money laundry and sponsorship of terrorism. We have investigative jurisdiction over every crime both in and outside United States . Also, you must not contact any other bank or persons in Nigeria , the United Kingdom or any part of the world for any payment, because your payment is presently under our custody here in United States of America . Please don’t respond to any FBI message without this security code (FBI/WOR/CMM). We shall direct you on the process of who to contact after extensive investigation.

Yours in service

Agent John Edward,

Regional Director

Federal Bureau Of Investigation

Intelligence Field Unit

J. Edgar Hoover Building

935 Pennsylvania Avenue, Nw Washington , D.C.

20535-0001, USA

I know many of you will have some very interesting ideas on what I should do.

Impersonating a federal law enforcement official is, I think, a federal offense. I suspect you will not get the 5.7 million dollars. I could be wrong. But I think the FBI would at least like to hear about it, and if there is a real agent by this name, he would likely want to hear about this too. But what do I know.

Since it involves inception, contact Leonardo DiCaprio and ask his advice.

Talk radio runs an FBI PSA about this many times throughout the day. The ad says the FBI won’t ever contact you via email. I’d stand by until you get an email from his soup eerier, Mother of All Agents, Howard Dean.

"Checkmated movement is nothing to mess with."

That was my first thought exactly!

Also there is this:

many people are virtually involve in sponsorship of terrorism knowingly and unknowingly since they participate in unsolicited and security unchecked transactions which sometimes the aftermath effect of unclaimed funds becomes wheel power for terrorist sponsorship.
I don't know about you guys but I neither wnat to knowingly or unknowigly involve in sponsorship of security unchecked transactions of wheel power for terrorist sponsorship!!!

No jest intended. The little smiley face I left behind was an indication that what I was saying should be obvious. If and when I receive this email, it will be sent directly to the FBI and if enough folks do this, perhaps the FBI will take it seriously.

Yeah, like they’re going to email you about a suspicious box containing five million dollars.
From a goofy domain using an odd name.
With really bad grammar.
Riiiiiiiiight.

Methinks Congress should issue a Letter of Marque for you to deal with the sender.

Dear Agent Edward,

Since you work in Intelligence in the FBI, I’ll make the small assumption that you know where I live. You can deliver that package anywhere between 4-6 pm day after tomorrow. Please be wearing a pink tutu and purple leotards under you football uniform.

Don’t know, just come right in and ignore the ammunition boxes.

You friend,

Barry Soetero

Impersonating a Federal law enforcement officer is indeed a Federal offense. If you forward this to the FBI, include headers.
A google search reveals that a lot of 419 scammers use the globomail domain, enough to assume that anything from such domain is a scammer.

I know many of you will have some very interesting ideas on what I should do.

That's easy.
Send this guy a book on English grammar, syntax and spelling.

Perhaps a dictionary.

This email makes such a hash of the English language that it is easy to believe that it must be a fake; no bureaucracy would pay anyone so lacking in communications skills anything more than, say, a job at McDonalds.

Oh, by the way, do you routinely send or receive valuable shipments? Or is this a case of identity theft? You might have made a brief statement about the whole thing yourself.

It is a “letter “or email is from a scam artist and is designed to scare the hell out of you...send it on to the FBI for their action...Do not reply to this or the author will know for sure he has a valid email...and if you have bills paid on line or order things with credit cards on line check on that....also call all your credit card companies to see if there is any strange purchases.
We were alerted by our email service that their billing was not accepted and would not be paid..they called us and I in turn called our credit card co only to discover that our cards had been used by some theif in Nigeria...got it all cancelled and new cards..what happened is these creeps get the first numbers on the cards which merely indicate the bank..they then just spin numbers until something hits then they go shopping and you get the bill for stolen goods...

“We have scanned those two trunk boxes “

1. Stay out of my trunks and I won’t beat the **** out of
you.

2. When the FBI want to converse with you they show up at your door.

3. IMHO, delete the email and run your virus program, etc.

delete the email,

have this post removed,

then remind yourself daily that FReepers don't have to think more than about 15 seconds before deleting garbage like this.
