If you get an e-mail from an FBI agent who is also a Nigerian minister and he wants to put $100 million in your checking account for a little while and will let you keep 20%—chances are it’s fake.

No federal agencies know my E-mail address (least I don’t so) so, I know it’s a scam.

I opened a new e-mail address for my business which included the word *glass*. Apparently a very rich family named Glass died in a plane crash in Europe. I’m their only living relative.

Who’d a thought?

A close friend recently got scammed out of $30,000 buying a boat on-line. FBI involved now.

LOL, I don’t worry about this. I’ve already been contacted and have started the process to get over 10 MILLION dollars from Nigeria. Soon as my good faith check of $1000 clears the bank the Nigerian Prince will wire the money directly to my investment account.

It’s always fun to look at the headers and see where the stuff is coming from. Who’d have thought the FBI would have mail servers in Romania?

The subject claims to have been following the victim for some time and was supposedly hired to kill the victim by a friend of the victim.

No worries. None of my friends have enough money to hire a hit man.

I have one of these emails in my junk file right now.

Here it is:

ROBERT MUELLER III EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR FBIFEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION FBI.WASHINGTON D.C

The Federal bureau of investigation (FBI) Washington, D.C in conjunction with some other relevant Investigations Agencies. Have recently been informed through our Global intelligence monitoring network that you presently have a transaction going on with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN). As regard to your payment.

It might interest you to know that we have taken out time in screening through this project as stipulated on our protocol of operation andhave finally confirmed that your contract payment is 100% genuine and hitch free from all facet and of which you have the lawful right to claim yourfund without any further delay. Having said all this, we will further advise that you go ahead in dealing with the Central Bank office accordingly as we will be monitoring all their services with you as well as your correspondence at all level.

Also note that from the FBI findings and CBN records after proper verification your actual outstanding contract payment is only US$9 million dollars remaining Please re-confirm to the CBN office if this is inline with what you have in your record because after our own verification the actual remaining amount unpaid with your contract is only $ 9 million dollars.

In addition, also be informed that we recently had a meeting with the Executive Governor of the Central Bank, in the person ofProf. CHUKWU CHARLES SOLUDO and MR KHALID JASSIM along with some of the top officials of the ministry regarding your case and they made us to understand that your file has been held in abase depending on when you personally contact the CBN for the claim.

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.

We were informed that we should warn our citizens and other contractors from other countries who must have been informed of the contract payment to be very careful prior to these irregularities so that they don't fall victim to this ugly circumstance. And should in case you are already dealing with anybody or office claiming to be from the Central Bank of Nigeria, you are further advised to STOP further contact with them in your best interest and then contact immediately the real office of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) only with the below information.

Email: cbn.headoffice@gmail.com

We the FBI has been informed that, your payment will be made to you in a certified bank draft or wired to your bank account directly from Central Bank of Nigeria Offshore Bank Account in the U.A.E headed by MR KHALID JASSIM and a copy of the draft or transfer slip will be given to you for you to take to your bank for confirmation. Also have in mind that the Central Bank of Nigeria equally has their own protocol of operation as stipulated on their banking terms, contact the CBN Governor as soon as you receive this email for your payment is ready.

Best Regards,

Robert S. Mueller III Federal Bureau of Investigation J. Edgar Hoover Building

Dearest One

Greetings to you and Please permit me to introduce myself. My name is Williams Jonnas with my younger sister; The only Son and Daughter of (Late Chief D.

My father willed in cash, the sum of $3.5 Million US Dollars which he deposited in one of the Bank here in Dakar Senegal, west Africa, with enabling conditions for the release of the fund which are as follows:

I contact you therefore to confirm if you can absorb us in partnership in your company or possibly advise us on any investment opportunity in your country. When we reach agreement with you, the Bank will release our fund to you and we will come over to you to commence the investment of the fund.

I expect your urgent response including your addresses, your telephone
