    LOL I didn't even think of looking at the site. The FBI email being a .org is pretty good too. I guess they have to adapt and change with the times. Profits must be down.

    You should string them along for a bit. Thats always quite satisfying and you'll be occupying time they would be scamming a real unsuspecting victim.

    I wonder what the conversion rate on an email like that is. The open rate must be pretty good.

    biggest clue of "SCAM" is the word "NIGERIA"....

    What I would like to do is find their home IP address and set up the VPS server with 3 ip addresses for "ping 4096 -t" lol that would slow them down a bit.

    That phone number was for FedEx and something of this magnitude would have a fedex.com email along with someone at the Memphis corporate office handling the whole thing.

    I'll bet the open rate is pretty good. It just happened to be in my preview window but the "Official letter from...." gives it away. Their official letters come with a guy packing heat and a signature from a federal judge.

    Oh yea, this is totally legit! I even sent the good ol' fbi-gvt.com 30% of my 10 million in advance to cover the taxes on it just to make sure... I mean I wouldn't want FEDex of Nigeria holding my ATM CARD back for any reason!

    check the FBI official website and compare with the email domain. If the two domains are different, don't trust it. :D

    @Autumn.... That was good.



    Nobody caught this one? Scariest words you will ever hear..... "Hi, we are from the government and we are here to {help|protect} you."

    We could point out all the things that are wrong but why make it easier for the scammers to actually get better at scamming the unknowing? Besides, if they send me an ATM card, the money is still in Nigeria and I have not recieved my pin number. Can you immagine how long it would take to withdraw $10.7,000,000(LOL) at $500 a day limit?

    p.s. Someone tell Obama to get the FBI a spelling and grammar checker. It should only cost $3.7,000,000(lol) per computer for this free software.

    I like the first word. Official; as everyone knows in order to make something official, you must put the word official at the beginning of the letter to make it official.
