    Yup & what a joke. Anybody who thinks they can get something for nothing is a fool. I am getting multiple emails about Eauropean Lotteries I won… really? How do you win something that your not aware of? Or did not enter?

    These bastards prey on stupid, simple-minded folks that normally get screwed out of a few buck. Do the math, if 20 people pay the $200 = $4,000.00 – cost runs about? $20 bucks for an account with an ATM?

    I get those european lottery scam emails too!! What’s the deal with those anyway?

    Its kinda funny that these scam dude from Nigeria are actually making money from this junk. Americans must be stupid….er most of them at least.

  3. I got a letter from FBI stating that I am under investigation because I opened an account in my name and transfered $10 500 000. Funny thing is, I don’t live in the states and do not have a friggin clue what it’s all about. When I told them to “bite me” they actually replied and threatened to arrest my and throw me in jail. I am waiting for the helicopters and somebody shouting “Freeze !! FBI!!!” Any minute now……ha ha ha ha

  4. elejohns on said:

    yes, keep getting these. I just delete them.

  5. I thought this to be pretty funny so I thought about replying back, I ended up writing this in like 5 minutes

    Think itll be funny if I get a message back, but it would suck if the actuall fbi came over my house, but well see.

    To whom this may concern,
    To the email recipient noted below,
    ROBERT S. MUELLER, III DIRECTOR,
    FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION
    UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE

    Sims, that was awesome. Very nicely done. Did you write that all your self?

    while I was reading that I couldn’t help but picture the faces of those scammers and so many questions came to mind. Did they believe you? did they really think the FBI was on to them? What did they do after they read your email?

  7. I dont know yet, I have yet to recieve an answer. but yeah it took me like about 10 minutes to write it. Having watched so many Spy movies and so many videogames, I figured I had to make this really good. Also in the bottom that leutenant I wrote down was one in charge of it all back in the 50s I think. So his name is actually real. And why the netherlands I dont know, that was the first thing that came to mind. But Ill post if I receive anything else from these guys.
