It was only a matter of time before the idiots overseas tried using a US Government agency like the FBI for a creative yet threatening email scam. I received this one in my email box today and I was laughing my butt off over it. The broken English of the email had me just shaking my head in disbelief but I know that someone somewhere might think it is a legitimate email. I did at first when I saw that it came from info@FBI.gov
First off, the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) does not, will not, and never has demanded money to be paid to them to avoid arrest. When you get this one please delete it after you laugh yourself silly. Here it is for your personal enjoyment...
This is a letter from the FBI authorities. You are to go through this e-mail
attachment immediately and get back to me so that we can resolve this pressing
issue. If you don't get back to me within the next 24 hours you might be arrested.
I am waiting for you e-mail....
