A short rant, before the gaming

Recieved a nigerian scam email today that amused me, so I wanted to share it with all of you.

Dear Beneficiary.


We the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Washington DC in conjunction with relevant investigation agencies here in United states of America. Report reaching us recently through our global Intelligence monitoring Network that you presently have transaction going on with the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) as regards to your over-due payment which was fully endorsed in your favor.

It might interest you to know that we have taken time in screening through this project as stipulated in our protocol of operations and confirmed that your payment is 100% genuine and hitch free from all ramification and you lawful right to claim your fund without fears. Consequently, we will further advise you to go ahead in dealing with the Central Bank office and follow his instructions as we will be monitoring the proceedings with you as well as your correspondence at all level and you should always get back to us if any question or advice.

This came from the phony email address and listed a name and personal email in Nigeria that should be “the only place you are to contact and deal with from now henceforth, so that the menace of scam can be checkmated by both parties.”

Just found this quite amusing. I would think that someone using the FBI’s good name this way would probably be finding themselves in alot of trouble.

More from gaming later today. Hope everyone is enjoying their week!
