Sometimes I read through my SPAM folder because really, the emails that I sometimes get totally crack me up. Usually it’s some guy in Nigeria asking me for money so I can claim 12 million pounds, or someone selling drugs to improve and enhance my life.
This morning I had a letter in my SPAM folder from the FBI!!
Of course Gmail is awesome and had attached a little message to the email saying the email might not be from who it’s purported to be from. Duh, that’s why its in my SPAM folder.
What cracked me up was the red-underlined phrase. I mean, really!!
The letter then asked me for $298.00 so they can release my approval slip for the procurement fund….what that has to do with Internet Wiretapping I do not know. The officer to get in touch with? Mr John Smith. Hmmm. Thing is, although I KNOW this a total hoax, I am sure many people might be taken in by it. If it doesn’t go to SPAM and doesn’t have a warning on it, it says FBI – who’s to know if its authentic or not.
People – any scheme where you have to pay money in order to receive money is a SCAM. Pure and simple. Be careful.
