    I gotta contact this John White guy. I just won $800,000.00. Woooooooo Hoooooooo!!!! Holy crap this is awesome:



    FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C.

    Federal Bureau of Investigation

    J. Edgar Hoover Building

    935 Pennsylvania Avenue,

    NW Washington, D.C. 20535-0001



    REF: US/28028/8A28/18 ATTN: RECIPIENT



    This is to officially inform you that it has come to our notice and we have thoroughly completed an investigation with the help of our Intelligence Monitoring Network System that you legally won the sum of $800,000.00 USD. from a Lottery Company outside the United States of America. 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 a Certified Cashier's Check.

    Normally, it will take up to 10 business days for an International Check to be cashed by your local banks. We have successfully notified this company on your behalf that funds are to be drawn from a registered bank within the United States of America so as to enable you cash the check instantly without any delay, henceforth the stated amount of $800,000.00 USD. has been deposited with Bank Of America.



    We have completed this investigation and you are hereby 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 at Bank Of America you will be required to settle the following bills directly to the Lottery Agent in-charge of this transaction whom is located in Lagos, Nigeria, According to our discoveries, you were required to pay for the following -



    Deposit Fee's (Fee's paid by the company for the deposit into an American Bank which is - Bank of America)

    Cashier's Check Conversion Fee (Fee for converting the Wire Transfer payment into a Certified Cashier's Check)



    The total amount for everything is $270.00 (Two hundred and seventy USD.) We have tried our possible best to indicate that this $270.00 should be deducted from your winning prize but we found out that the funds have already been deposited at Bank Of America and cannot be accessed by anyone except the legal owner (you), the winner; therefore you will be required to pay the required fee's to the Agent in-charge of this transaction via Western Union Money Transfer Or Money Gram.

    In order to proceed with this transaction, you will be required to contact the agent in-charge (JOHN WHITE) via e-mail. Kindly look below to find appropriate contact information:



    CONTACT AGENT NAME: JOHN WHITE

    E-MAIL ADDRESS: w.fbi@yandex.com



    You will be required to e-mail him with the following information:



    FULL NAME:

    ZIP CODE:

    DIRECT CONTACT NUMBER:



    You will also be required to request Western Union details on how to send the required $270.00 in order to immediately ship your prize of $800,000.00 USD Certified Cashier's Check drawn from Bank of America, and also include the following Fund Reference Identification : FA3948-914.



    This letter will serve as proof that the Federal Bureau Of Investigation is authorizing you to pay the required $270.00 ONLY to AGENT JOHN WHITE via information in which he shall send to you, if you do not receive your winning prize of $800,000.00 we shall be held responsible for the loss and this shall invite a penalty of $15,000 which will be made PAYABLE ONLY to you (The Winner).

    Converted from a wire? Hm, well since I work in banking then I’d quickly realize that a wire is recognized as guaranteed funds and as such there wouldn’t be a 10-day hold placed on those funds.

    People will try anything these days.

    I used to work with a guy from Sierra Leon. He said Africans think Nigerians are geniuses and are idolized for the way they steal wealth from other countries this way. He said the government encourages and will shelter anyone bringing that kind of money into the country.

    Well, did you contact Agent White yet? Didn't say he was a "special" agent.

    My late step mom fell for one of these scams. I don’t know all the details but it was something she saw on Craigslist.

    I’d send the email account to the actual FBI; they do chase these people down. I’ve seen huge arrests in Africa and India between the US and local LE

    Somewhere in the FBI there is probably an agent named John White. I wonder how much crap he's catching from his co-workers.

    The small value of $270 keeps it below the threshold of being worth pursuing. How much are you going to spend trying to recoup $270? Pretending to be the FBI might piss the FBI off enough to pursue it.
