This fun it of spam came in this morning:
ATTN: Beneficiary.

According to the ethics of an office, introduction is always very important on a
first contact like this. I am Mr. Christopher A. Wray, Director of the Federal
Bureau of Investigation (FBI). This Official Memorandum is to inform you that we
discovered that some officials whom work under the United States government have
attempted to divert your Funds through a back-door channel. We actually discovered
this today, through our Secret Agents under the Disciplinary Unit of the Federal
Bureau of Investigation (FBI) after we apprehended a suspect.


O course, it went on to explain that there is a tremendous amount of money waiting for me to claim it.

The FUNNIEST part is that I looked at the SENDER's address.

One might expect the FBI to have a USA return address, with dot GOV at the very end,  but this one ended in  NZ.

It was from somewhere in New Zealand!

Perhaps I should start a topic on the GAMES Forum, since I get so many of these.
This morning, it was a message asking me to either CONFIRM that I got $3,000,000 from them, or contact them immediately so they can close the case.
And that was allegedly from


Wonder if there even IS such an agency.

Odd that his return address is
"Mr. Mark ColeMan" <
Sure doesn't look like a U.N. return address
