    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.
     
    Many person(s) have knew about this unclaimed fund that is yet to be paid to
    you, so they use the medium in contacting you about the unclaimed fund just to
    extort money from you.
     
    We are using this medium to inform you now that your said fund is held by an
    insurance company in the West African region, so do not respond to email(s)
    you receive from this impostors claiming to be one organization or the other.
     
    For confirmation if truly you have an unclaimed fund with the insurance
    company in Western part of Africa, you are advise to contact the GOLD LINK
    INSURANCE COMPANY with;
    YOUR FULL NAME:
    YOUR COUNTRY:
    YOUR DIRECT PHONE NUMBER:
     
    They will give you their website for you to check your name on the list of
    beneficiaries that are yet to receive their unclaimed fund, If your name is on
    the list then you can proceed with the next step on claiming your held fund
    from them.
     
    Below is the contact details of the GOLD LINK INSURANCE COMPANY.
     
    You are to contact Mr. Tayo Oba of the Gold Link Insurance Company directly
    with the information as given below.
     
     
    GOLD LINK INSURANCE COMPANY
    Mr. Tayo Oba
    Email : [COLOR=#ff0000][SIZE=4][B][here it goes their random email][/B][/SIZE][/COLOR]
     
    NOTE: ONCE YOU CONTACT MR. TAYO OBA OF THE GOLD LINK INSURANCE COMPANY MAKE
    SURE HE GIVES YOU THE LINK OF THEIR WEBSITE FOR YOU TO VERIFY YOUR NAME BEFORE
    YOU PROCEED WITH THE CLAIMS PROCESS, IF YOUR NAME IS NOT IN THE LIST ON THEIR
    WEBSITE PLEASE DO NOT PROCEED WITH CLAIMS FOR YOU TO BE AT THE SAFER SIDE.
     
     
     
     
    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: info@fbi.gov

    You read that right, no misspell or sth wrong, here's a pic:


    [​IMG]

    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.

    LMFAO people are so dumb. I would never spoof an email for starters, but when you go messing with the FBI and spoofing their stuff, you're going to have some issues, regardless where you are, minus maybe North Korea.
