Hello BHW, Today I received this curious email in my spam folder and I will try to monetise as sh*t this scammer every cent I can, following a BHW members method (i think it was about ppd or sth). Here's the email I got: Code: ANTI-TERRORIST AND MONETARY CRIMES DIVISION FBI HEADQUARTERS WASHINGTON DC FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATIONS J.EDGAR HOOVER BUILDING 935 PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE, NW WASHINGTON, D.C. 20535-0001 Ref: FBI/DC/25/113/13/2013 [URL]https://www.fbi.gov[/URL] Urgent attention needed We found out through our global intelligence monitoring network that you are having an unclaimed fund in the West African region.

Yours Faithfully FOR FBI DIRECTOR MR. ROBERT S. MUELLER III. cc: gold link insurance plc (glip) cc: general intelligence department (GID) cc federal bureau of investigation (FBI) cc .internet crime complaint center (ic3) cc: Counterterrorism Division (CTD) cc: international monetary fund (IMF) cc: Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) cc: international banking security association (IBSA) cc: FBI Police (FBIP) cc: Counterterrorism Division (CTD) cc: national white collar crime center (NW3C) cc: bureau of justice assistance (BJA) cc: economic and financial crimes commission (EFCC) The most interesting fact is that email sender is: email@example.com You read that right, no misspell or sth wrong, here's a pic: HERE'S THE PLAN: 1) I will create 100 free email accounts 2) I will FORWARD them an email WITH the main email with information regarding my details. 3) I will either: 3.1) Send them partial information and I will tell them that if you want my full information you will have to "unlock" it from my "secure" website (this will be of course a ppd site or CLP) 3.2) Tell them that I uploaded my information in a "secure" website (either a ppd site or CLP ) 4) After they tell me to send them money or sth similar, I will ask them to deposit me $1,000 to "my paypal" account because I got M USD (M = "the amount of money they ask me" - 1000) so that I need that $1,000 USD to "withdraw" to my currency. And after I receive the $1,000 on Paypal (if ever), I will try to buy ebay stuff FROM MY EBAY SELLING ACCOUNT so that there are no "connections" from the paypal account created and the ebay store. [So basically I sell something at $1,000 with my main account AND buy it with the $1,000 on the FAKE PAYPAL ACCOUNT] 5) They will probably wonder, WTF? this ModaFoka hasnt sent me any money, and then they will probably try to get back at me or "track" me down, by then I will get $1-$2 from the CPA + $990 ($1,000 - ebay fees) for a total of $991. And I really think this can be scalable at some point. Any ideas? Suggestions? Either way I will keep this topic alive by updating on what happens next.
