|This guy thought he could trick me by playing as the FBI. If the Federal Bureau of Investigation wanted to contact you, be sure that they would be much more direct. |
FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION. FBI Headquarters in Washington , D.C. J. Edgar Hoover Building , 935 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW Washington , D.C. 20535-0001 USA www.fbi.gov
ATTENTION: BENEFICIARY (Why not use my name eh? You don't even know my name eh FBI agent?)
This e-mail has been issued to you in order to officially inform you that we have completed an investigation on an International Payment in which was issued to you by an International Lottery Company(That's a company?)
with the help of our newly developed technology (International Monitoring Network System((I bet...))) we discovered that your e-mail address was automatically selected by an Online Balloting System, this has legally won you the sum of $2.4million USD from a Lottery Company outside the United States of America(Really?)During our investigation we discovered that your e-mail won the money from an Online Balloting System and we have authorized this winning to be paid to you via INTERNATIONAL CERTIFIED BANK DRAFT. Normally, it will take up to 5 business days for an INTERNATIONAL CERTIFIED BANK DRAFT by your local bank.
We have successfully notified this company on your behalf that funds are to be drawn from a registered bank within the world wined,(wait... World wined?) so as to enable you cash the check instantly without any delay, henceforth the stated amount of $2.4million USD has been deposited with IMF. We have completed this investigation and you are here by approved to receive the winning prize as we have verified the entire transaction to be Safe and 100% risk free, due to the fact that the funds have been deposited with IMF you will be required to settle the following bills directly to the Lottery Agent in-charge of this transaction whom is located in Cotonou, Benin Republic. (Benin, Lagos, Nigeria... Association with places are mostly scams, why trust a random email promising money?)
According to our discoveries, you were required to pay for the following,
(1) Deposit Fee's ( IMF INTERNATIONAL CLEARANCE CERTIFICATE )
(2) Shipping Fee's ( This is the charge for shipping the Cashier's Check to your home address)
The total amount for everything is $98.00 We have tried our possible best to indicate that this $98.00 should be deducted from your winning prize but we found out that the funds have already been deposited IMF and cannot be accessed by anyone apart from you the winner, therefore you will be required to pay the required fee's to the Agent in-charge of this your transaction In order to proceed with this transaction, you will be required to contact the agent in-charge ( Mr. Mark Ben ) via e-mail. (why exactly is name in brackets??)
Kindly look below to find appropriate contact information:

DIRECT CONTACT NUMBER:

You will also be required to request Western Union or Money Gram (Right there! The old send money to get money deal. Never.) on how to send the required $98.00 in order to immediately ship your prize of $2.4million USD via INTERNATIONAL CERTIFIED BANK DRAFT from IMF, also include the following transaction code in order for him to immediately identify this transaction: EA2948-910.

Faithfully Yours, <(faithfully?)
