SEB Mailbag: Second take on the FBI Nigerian email scam.

Today I received a second variation on the we’re-the-FBI-trying-to-help-you-get-money-for-free email scam. It seems the FBI is a popular organization with the scammers these days. Again I have to note with some amusement that the director of the FBI uses a YahooUK email address. This one takes a much more direct, threatening, and long-winded approach:

That’s some funny shit right there. Still I have to wonder how many people fall for it. Probably more than I’d think.

  1. My pet peeves include any kind of spam, and I use SpamCop and the web mail’s junk reporting for every one that makes it through to me.  For e-mail like the one you received, I additionally report to:  http://www.ic3.gov/

  2. Meanwhile the Nigerian Finance minister is confused as to why everyone keeps turning down his plea for help.

    Yeah, when just raising the inheritance tax would solve all their financial issues!

    But honestly, does anyone think that these Nigerian spammers have a serious case of blockheadedness too? A case of overdone patriotism? I mean, by now, many people HAVE heard of the Nigerian spam. They will be suspicious, even if they are normally gullible. By simply changing the setup slightly and saying you got an inheritance from Canada or some other unthreatening, normal, place – they’d probably raise their success rate from 0.1% to 0.2%…!

    PS: There is a new version that claims to come from a serial killer hired to off you, asking for a bribe so he doesn’t execute his commission. Rude stuff.

  3. Shit, really reading it closely, its so crude… I could write a better one easily. Maybe I should offer my services to the Nigerian spammers as a proofreader / government procedures advisor. Say for about 10% of the take only. Of course, I would need your bank account number and…

  4. ingolfson- I somehow doubt that anyone who is likely to fall for this stuff is going to notice small errors of spelling, grammar, and logic.  Or perhaps they are deliberate, to give it that certain Nigerian air of second-language verisimilitude.

  5. So its all fake then even if the email address is different, becaues this has been seriously freaking me out all day.

  6. golly gee you mean to tell me i am not going to get my $$ what now? i have already sold all my assets to pay for my mothers heart transplant because i thought i had 10 million coming!! now i have NOTHING if you would like to help please send your bank account # and your ss # to…. JUST KIDDING!!! Have a good one ya’ll!!

  7. I received that today.  It had a US email on it.  (contactoffice69@yahoo.com)

    I found typos.

    I can see how some would think it was legit.

  8. Hey bud i got one too

  9. Hey, if they believe in Sky Daddy, why not believe the FBI is trying to help them receive $10,500,000.00? Seems to me to be a small stretch.  LOL  LOL  LOL

  10. WOW… THOSE NI-SCAMMERS ARE SURE PERSISTENT aren’t they.  I just received the first of the FBI guy scam [April 16, 2008] my brother’s birthday by the way… sorry I digress.  But seriously, I have received over 90 or more of the various fradulent lottery, pleas for a dying christian woman, professor Sulodo (CBN), a guy who died in an airplane crash with whole family… by the way he crashed 5 times in less than two years by my nigerian scumbags. I even had them to call me at 4:30 in the morning, 62 times when I was a novice to the 419 scum… I mean scam.  I got upsetting followup emails from “madames” who insisted that I send the money asap.  This went on for a while, to the point that I was mailed a $5000.00 bogus check to cover the “courier fees” for my consignment box full of cash to be dropped at my doorsteps.  The check was to be cashed and $300 to pay the courier, and the remainder to be sent back to the Big Sounding Official Titled Scumbag at CBN.  Lot of cash to be charged to my checking account, right.  Only that in a month or so, the check would bounce and I would be responsible for the “mistake”.  After checking [no pun intended], out the check… turns out that the bank in Texas that the 5 grand was written on, had that branch shut down eons ago.  But the friend of the Nigerian lowlife, living in Texas had somehow stolen blank checks from that branch, and used it to complete the scheme of CBN having a “trusting american account”… it gets better or worse, depending on if you are John Walsh or wanting comic relief.  The Soludo fellow had me call a confidant in West Virginia to verify the honesty of this transaction.  A gentleman answered and very quickly said, “Dr. Whoever name and diplomatic title give to me at the time… was an honest man”.  He refused to answer any questions other than that comment.  O.K., I’m slightly convienced, but skeptical.  Upon taking the bogus check to my bank, the branch manager suggests an investigation.  They did one and I thought of an idea to catch the scumbags by opening an account with only $10.  Although $10 is less than the miminum required to start a checking account at the this bank, the manager complied. Result was that they took the bait, and somehow got my account number to my personal full of money, account… and ashamed to admit… but they slowly drained that account by taking out small amounts at a time.  Not until I received my bank statement did I know that over 24 withdrawals of the same amount had been taken.  By the time I contacted the secret service about the matter, the scumbags had gotten another IP address.  That is the problem with these situations… before any authorities can catchup with them, they move.  I wish a system can be established where immediate action could close in on these bastards before they scam… oops scram.  To be honest with you guys, I think that some american lowlife dude is behind many of these emails.  The hitman/assasin culprit sounds American… WHY… the sentence structure was o.k., the spelling and grammar was atrocious.

    I write this lengthy discourse to help warn others that the scam letters come in various forms.  To notice the sentence structure, the grammar, spelling (especially americanized last names like, William instead of Williams, Spear not Spears etc., the use of words that may compensate for the correct one, but any legit company should know the right thing to say and how to say it… I would if I wanted to sale something, even a lie… wouldn’t you?
    Oh yeah, someone mentioned this earlier, but THE EMAIL ADDY!
    No corporation would use a free email account such as YAHOO.UK, or Hotmail or gmail or any of the newer ones they have begun to use, like Free.UK.

    Lastly, one resort I used a few times is to reply to the sender, not the fake counselate or fudicary – see I can’t spell their titles-
    while using my no name addy, to send a reply telling them what a lowlife scumbag (from Joe Walsh) they are, and we Americans are not stupid, we have been warned by Western Union and the FBI and T.V. about there 419 schemes.  And that I have just sent their IP address to the U.S. Secret Service along with the authorites in their country before they receive this letter.  Then I SEND IT MULTIPLE TIMES, SOMETIMES CHANGING THE SUBJECT LINE like “I can’t wait”… or… “how do I get my money”… well you get the idea… and on this note I will close and say stay alert to any official (Bank letters saying your account is frozen, so give them your info. so they can reactivate it… NO BANK SENDS EMAILS SUCH AS THESE EVER).  So be warned that if they address you as “Dear Benificiary, or anything except your name- well if you get on a sucker’s list as I have evidently, they may get your first name- be warned do not fall the scum… oops scam.

  11. tongue wink tongue wink tongue wink tongue wink
    stupid they really think I was gonna fall for ti but i send them a piece of my mind!!!
    anybody want there email to report them i just don’t know how?

      The FBI today is providing a warning to the public against an ongoing scheme involving jury service and internet/phones fraud. The public needs to be aware that individuals identifying themselves as U.S. court employees have been telephonically contacting citizens and advising them that they have been selected for jury duty. These individuals ask to verify names and Social Security numbers then ask for credit card numbers. If the request is refused, citizens are then threatened with fines illegally.

    The judicial system does not contact people telephonically and ask for personal information such as your Social Security number, date of birth or credit card numbers. If you receive one of these phone calls, do not provide any personal or confidential information to these individuals. This is an attempt to steal or to use your identity by obtaining your name, Social Security number and potentially to apply for credit or credit cards or other loans in your name. It is an attempt to defraud you. Crime and fraud is real, so be careful.

      Working closely with our partners in intelligence, law enforcement, military, and diplomatic circles, the FBI’s primary responsibility is to neutralize terrorist cells and operatives here in the United States and help dismantle terrorist networks/money laundry and internet fraud worldwide. Although protecting the United States from terrorist attacks and money laundry is our first priority, we remain committed to the defense of America against foreign intelligence threats as well as the enforcement of federal criminal laws, all while respecting and defending the Constitution.

      If you’ve ever watched one of those crime dramas on TV and heard the term “NCIC” mentioned in passing and wondered what it was, you’re probably not alone.

      NCIC, which stands for National Crime Information Center, is one of the unsung heroes of crime-fighting—little known to the public, but used every day by law enforcement officers nationwide and even across the border to take terrorists and criminals off the street, find missing persons and property, and save lives.

      We’re very proud of NCIC’s legacy, but what’s most important to us is what it can do today,” says Bush. “We’re constantly trying to make it better and faster.” And we have, with a major technical upgrade in 1999 and important additions of terrorism and gang information in recent years.

    They are still, waiting for confirmation from you on the already Transferred funds which were made in direct transfer so that they can do final crediting to your account. Secret diplomatic payments are not made unless the funds are related to terrorist activities why must your payment be made in secret transfer, if your transaction is legitimate, if you are not a terrorist, then why did you not receive the money directly into your account; this is a pure coded, means of payment?

We govern and oversee funds transfer for the World Bank and the rest of the world.

  19. Well to answer your question about who would fall for it, I did. That was a first time me hearing that and it actually look real to me. So don’t ever say that it want happen to you, just keep living. I was told to send $850 for a Diplomatic Immunity Transfer seal (DIST). These fruitbooties are some clever sob’s that I have ever seen in my life. They even went as far to tell me after I told them that it was a scam, that if I did not turn my self into Washington within 48 hours that they would come to Chattanooga, Tennessee for forceably arrest me. Well I tell you what I take these kinds of things very serious and you people need to as well. I did some research on some of this since this has happened to me and found out some very interesting stuff so heed the warning.

    It is said that if you don’t comply with the agreement and send them more money that if they have your information that they would use your identity and open up bank accounts, credit cards and all sorts of goodies they can do to your credit. There were also cases where they said one person was lured to Nigeria where they either torture you and imprison you against your own will or better yet kill you.Is that not worth a warning to tell others how criminally ill these people are. They will stoop to any low to get these funds from people. My warning to you is this, please contact your local FBI and file a omplaint, regardless if you respond to the emails or not,then you also need to contact your local secret service and file a complaint and contact your local better business bureau and quit taking this as a joke. The longer you keep letting this go, more people are going to be a sucker, or worser lose their life because people like yourself want to brush that off as these people are blockheads. They might not be as dumb as you think and I would not give them the benefit of the doubt in no shape form or fashion.

    You can heed the warning the choice is up to you.The more you complain, the better these people can get caught, maybe not right now, but if you just keep letting it slide, then you are giving these people the advantage they are looking for, but if you fight back then we as americans can win this senseless war over our own personal finances. Think about it before the next time you think it can’t happen to you. Keep living is all I can say, your day will come rest assure.

  20. Sorry, you’re a blockhead. A call to your local FBI office would have easily verified the scam and saved you a lot of headaches, but that would’ve required having more than two brain cells.

  21. I’ve also gotten one of these and I’m currently having a ball jerking the guy around!  LOL

  22. They told me I needed to Moneygram them $650. I told them I would send them $100,650.00 and then they could send me the $100,000 extra back.

  23. Here’s what happened:  I got the original from (copied & pasted exactly): “MR, JOHN FREMAN
    HEAD OF ANTI-FRAUD UNIT E.F.C.C” saying that the FBI told him to contact me to have me wire $750 to “NAME: SPIFF BECKS
    ADDRESS: LAGOS NIGERIA
    TEST QUESTION: WHITE?
    ANSWER: BLACK
    CORRECT AMOUNT: $750.00” to get my DITS. I replied back that I wasn’t going to send anyone $750.  I then got another one assuring me I needed to get the payment done.  Replied with “I don’t know you from a hole in the wall” and asked what was so special about a DITS that it cost $750. Next one:  “you do not know me it is fbi that directed you to us for acquisation of diplomatic immunity seal of transfer needed to release your payment with bank of America, and to get the documents, it is going to cost you us$750 to get the documents which we will send to fbi for certification of your fund and release of your paymen. So do the needful so that we can issue the documents for the release of your payment.” Do the needful?  LOL!  Replied saying I needed something from the FBI telling me to deal with him.  This came in today!:  “Dear sir

    It has come to our notice that you have not contacted Mr John freeman of Economic and financial Crime Commission (EFCC) for the acquisition of the Diplomatic seal of transfer documents for authentication and certification of your fund with bank of America. Be informed that Economic and financial Crime Commission have been advised accordingly, therefore make a swift contact with the commission to provide us with the needed documents for ratification.

    However, this is not a childs play, as we have a stipulated time to round up this investigation, you have to give us an utmost cooperation to enhance the investigation and release of your payment with bank of America, The legitimacy of this fund must be ascertain/proven to this commission having violated section 360 sub-section 78 A2 of Financial and allied matters Degree 2003 on international monitory transfer.

    As earlier informed, You are under an observational /Investigation in connection with money laundering, We will not leave any stone unturned without the provision of the Diplomatic Immunity Seal Of Transfer(D.I.S.T) Which should be issue to you from the paying country of the said fund,  So you are to contact the Economic and Financial Crime (EFCC) Nigeria to obtain the above required without any further delay

    As earlier informed Contact John Freeman of efcc via the email effc_ng@live.com, freemanjh@live.com Tel: 234-80-96678689 in your mail to efcc, provide your information for the processing of the documents

    Thanks for your anticipated cooperation,

    R Mullers

    For: fbi

    Note the lack of an FBI header and the fact that the Director’s name is spelled wrong?  My reply:  “This came from the same email address as the correspondence I’ve already gotten and the Director of our FBI’s last name isn’t “Mullers”.  Not to mention that there’s no FBI official heading on the email.”  Can’t wait to see what they come up with next!  In the meantime, all this is being report to the FBI and to live.com.  Wonder if I can get them to keep going long enough so they get caught?

  24. I get these scams all the time. In fact I received the above just this morning.  Usually I try to have some fun and right click on properties & message source to find where they’re really coming from. Then I give them some song and dance about how they should pity us Americans at this time of year (tax time) and then attach a copy of IRS Pub. 17 for their perusal, all 299 pages.  If nothing else, it at least uses up their email space.

  25. These idiots crack me up LOL  I guess you do not need to know how to spell or use at the very least 5th or 6th grade level grammer.  No kidding most 5 year olds could have written a more convincing letter than that or the one I got.  I couldn’t believe it was a genuine FBI letter until I saw the list of very important people it was being carbon copied to cool smirk

    You are right though there is someone out there who will get a copy of this and be dum enough to fall for it.  Sad, very sad.

  26. Wow! The FBI director contacted me and said I have $10,500,000 coming to me! What a swell guy.

    I just got something very close to this. The only problem, they forgot to tell me where to send the money so I can get my $10,500,000!

    I need my bailout too!

    Maybe I can reply to the e-mail with cash attachment?  I keep trying to make bank deposits by putting money into that 5 1/4” slot that come with my computer in 1984, maybe it’s really for sending the money to Nigeria.

    Love you by!

  27. HAHA i got one to!!! this one is kinda different than the others i seen. there even gonna come to my house and arrest me!! rofl

    Attention: Funds Beneficiary

    This is to officially inform you that a foreign bank from Africa have transfered funds worth Millions of United States Dollars with your name as the beneficiary. This foreign bank knows that they do not have enough facilities to effect this payment from their location to your account and therefore they used what is known as Secret Diplomatic Transit Payment (S.T.D.P) to do this transfer and they are currently awaiting a confirmation from you for final crediting to your account. Secret diplomatic payments are not made unless the funds are related to terrorist activities, so if you are not intending to finance terrorism and your transaction is legitimate, why then did you agree to receive these funds through this means that was used instead of a direct transfer to your account?

    Our findings shows that this method of transfer was used in the past to finance terrorist acts, so there is need to correct this problem now to avoid you getting into trouble when the funds reflects in your account. Under the United Nations monetary rules it is our duty as a world wide commission to correct this little problem before this fund will be credited into your personal account. Due to the increased difficulty and security measures set up by the United States for the transfer of funds from foreign banks, the FBI foreign bank commission have stopped the transfer on its way to debit your reserve account and pay you through a secured diplomatic transit account (s.d.t.a) We govern and oversee funds transfer for the World Bank and the rest of the world.

    We demand your immediate response with full details of the transaction you are doing that involved this huge sum because the funds are currently being held in our custody. You must provide us with a Diplomatic Immunity Seal of Transfer (DIST) within 3 days from the world local bank that authorized the fund transfer to certify that the funds you are about to receive are clean and free from terrorist and drug. Until this document is provided we shall have cause to cross and impound the transfer and will come to your house to arrest you.

    The Diplomatic Immunity Seal Of Transfer (DIST) often referred to as a Criminal History Record or Rap Sheet, is a listing of certain information taken from fingerprint submissions retained by the FBI in connection with arrests and, in some instances, federal employment, naturalization, or military service. This Condition is Valid until 30th of June after which the funds shall be confiscated and legal action will be taken against you.

    Guarantee: Funds will be released upon confirmation of the DIST document.

    NOTE: We have requested for the DIST document to make available the most complete and update records possible for the enhancement of public safety, welfare and security of Society while recognizing the importance of individual privacy rights. If you fail to provide the Document to us, we will charge you with the financial crimes.

  28. Anyone that falls for these things is not quite right in the head, do you really think the FBI can’t access your bank account before you know it? An international FBI investigation would not rely on a lowly citizen to aid in their investigation. Theres is no reason to fall for something this pathetic, the FBI would arrange a meeting to talk about something this important, not send an email with horrendous spelling and grammar

  29. Here is the response I got by replying to them. (pretending to believe they were fbi). Also I have included the original email they sent, and my “scared, upset” reply that me this newest message. Pretty ballsy idiots huh? Anyone got an idea how to best mess with them further? Or should I just turn them in & quit playing around?!

    ATTENTION:

    Most certainly, your fund has been subjected to various rigorous verifications due to your inability to perform your required obligation. Now, it has been brought back to my notice and I promise to stop at nothing in making sure that you receive your rightful fund this time. All you have to do is ignore all other contacts about your fund and follow my instruction strictly. We have put a hold on the transfer that was about being done by an impostor who claimed to be working for you.

    It was vividly established that your name was used to have the said fund transferred illegally to Bank of America. This was done secretly and we detected that. That must be cleared forthwith. It is your fund. All we are asking is the DIST document to clear your fund of any illegality. That is all!

    Consequently, you are required to obtain the Diplomatic Immunity Seal Of Transfer (DIST). This all important document consists of; CERTIFICATE OF OWNERSHIP, ANTI-TERRORIST AND MONEY LAUNDERING CLEARANCE CERTIFICATE, DRUG-FREE CERTIFICATE and WIRE TRANSFER APPROVAL DOCUMENT. All these documents will indicate that you are not involved in any acts of terrorism or money laundering. Diplomatic Immunity Seal Of Transfer (DIST). is most vital in this transaction. You must procure this all-important document from Nigeria where the said fund originated. Therefore, we are directing you to contact the Anti Fraud Department of EFCC, Nigeria for further instruction on how to obtain the document. Contact the Chairman of the Department, Mr. Spencer Lulu through his email address or phone: antigraftdepts@live.com AND antigraftdepts@ymail.com tel:+234-708-454-5477 He will obtain the document on your behalf and forward same to us. Note that you are to pay a stipulated fee of $875.00 for the processing and procurement of the DIST document. Upon confirmation of this, we will release your fund for immediate transfer into your bank account as clean fund.

    In your email to Mr. Spencer Lulu, do include your
    Full name……..,
    Address……….,
    Phone number…..,

    This information will be used in the DIST document procurement. This is very important!
    Lastly, you are expected to send us your full banking details where you would want your fund transferred as soon as it is cleared. Be warned that you have 72hrs to have this document obtained, failure will buttress the fact that you are actually involved in this act of terrorism funding and/or money laundering. The DIST document will only prove otherwise, Therefore; have it obtained within the given time frame.
    We will be expecting to hear from Mr.Spencer Lulu that you have obtained the vital document.

I did not authorize anything. I want no part of it. Keep the money, and arrest whoever is responsible for using my name without my permission please.

    Sincerely, Clyde J. Furlong

It was further revealed that initial FUND transfer originated from Nigeria to England and now here in a Bank in USA. These transfers did not follow due process in line with the international FUND transfer rules and regulation.

  30. I received an email yesterday from HM Revenue and Customs, advising me of a tax repayment of £385.50. There is an important lesson here. When pretending to be from HMRC, do not send your phishing lines to former HMRC employees. Especially those who know there is a specialist email address for the public to forward such emails to.

    Any British readers who get an email purporting to notify of tax repayment should forward it to

    Phishing@hmrc.gsi.gov.uk

    its the .gsi.gov.uk that tells you its a real government address – GSI is Government Secure Interface. HMRC DOES NOT contact via email, due to the insecure nature.

  31. Got an e-mail about the same thing from someone claiming to be
    (FBI Agent John Freeman
    Regional Deputy Director)

    How stupid do these scammers think people are? What is with this world anyway?
