Cool ** What's in the water that these people are drinking? **

Is it just me or are you folks getting these "requests/threats" on a "more-than-usual" basis?

I do love how the tone of these things, lately, seem to be of a "more desparate" nature.

Life's a b!tch when you're a scammer.

Enjoy!

Good day,

This is to officially bring to your notice that, after a thorough investigation by the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, we have been able to recover your long awaited payment. We have been able to recover the sum of $3M USD (Three Million, United Sates Dollars.) from some group of Banks and fake individuals as listed below.

Banks: Standard Chartered Bank, Royal Bank of Scotland, Central Bank of Nigeria, Barclays Bank, Bank of America and the list goes on and on. We have also been able to recover part of the fund from Prof. Charles Soludo, Mr. Sanusi Lamido, Mr. Patrick Aziza, and Mr. Frank Nweke Robert Mueller, Mr. Miguel George and Mr. Tunde Lemo. We need you to verify if you have dealt with any of the banks or individuals listed above, so as to process and make sure your fund is released to you immediately.

We have contacted the US consulate and the Central Bank director in regards to this present development and they have assured us that your over due payment of US$3M will be releases to you as soon as your details are verified. Kindly re- confirm the details listed below..
1) Your complete banking details.
2) Your direct telephone digits
3) Your address
4) Any form of ID
5) Irrevocable Payment Certificate.

Kindly re-confirm your details along with the irrevocable payment certificate, in order to release your Three Million United States Dollars (US$3M) within 48 working hours. In case you have lost your irrevocable payment certificate or want this paper works procured in your favor, we urge you to get back to us as soon as you receive this message, in order to give you directives on who to contact to get the irrevocable payment certificate procured for you immediately.

Finally, we authorize you to stop all dealings with any office or person claiming to be in charge of your payment, for we believe they might be in collaboration with these arrested men. Attached files of those that were arrested and the funds that were recovered from their foreign account over seas will be attached to you upon receipt of your response.

Regards,
Agent in charge
Laughlin M. Laura.

I don't know, IMO the scams get better and better every year.

personally ive fallen foul at least 3 times to the dam UPS and fedex emergency scam that gets sent to all companies that ship UPS or fedex.

You get an email that looks like a UPS alert (which of course they don't do) and you are sometimes busy and click the link, and boom, malware. For me every time ive done this was during a UPS shipping issue where I was expecting an email. Sometimes the timing is just right.

That and better business bureau notifications.

However, back to REALITY. Sigh
