Just received this and it made me literally laugh out loud. I haven't had one of these since the old Nigerian scams.

======================================================

 CHRISTOPHER WRAY

DIRECTOR FBI

FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION FBI.WASHINGTON D.C FEDERAL BUREAU OF

INVESTIGATION SEEKING TO WIRETAP

 

The Federal bureau of investigation (FBI) Washington,D.C in conjunction with

some other relevant Investigations Agencies have recently been informed

through our Global intelligence monitoring network that your over-due

contract payment which was fully endorsed in your favor accordingly by the

Central bank of Malaysia(Bank Negara Malaysia) has not been claimed.

 

It might interest you to know that we have taken out time in screening

through this project as stipulated on our protocol of operation and have

finally confirmed that your contract payment is 100% genuine and hitch free

from all facet and of which you have the lawful right to claim your fund

without any further delay.

We further advise that you go ahead in dealing with the Central Bank office

accordingly as we will be monitoring all their services with you as well as

your correspondence at all level.

 

We were also made to understand that a lady with name Mrs.

Joan C.Bailey from OHIO has already contacted them and also presented to

them all the necessary documentation evidencing your claim purported to have

been signed personally by you prior to the release of your contract fund

valued at about $25million us dollars only but the Central Bank office did

the wise thing by insisting on hearing from you personally before they go

ahead on wiring your fund to the Bank information which was forwarded to

them by the above named Lady so that the main reason why they contacted us

so as to assist them in making the investigation.

 

Contact immediately the office of the Central Bank of Malaysia (Bank Negara

Malaysia) via email with the below information accordingly:

 

NAME: Nor Shamsiah Mohamad Yunus

OFFICE ADDRESS: Bank Negara Malaysia,

Jalan Kuching, Kuala Lumpur,

Wilayah Persekutuan,Kuala Lumpur,

Selangor,Malaysia

Email:  muhhno@gmail.com

Meanwhile, we will advise that you contact the office of the Governor of the

Central Bank immediately with the above email address and request that they

attend to your payment file as directed, so as to enable you receive your

contract fund accordingly.

 

To this effect, you are required to reconfirm and authenticate your given

particulars below for certainty and onward processing and release of you

funds as we may not be held liable for any wrong payment.

 

 

 

FULL NAMES:________________________________

CITY: _____________________________

ZIP: _____________

COUNTRY____________________________

SEX:___________

AGE:_______________

TELEPHONE NUMBER:_____________________

FAX: __________________________

 

 

 

Ensure you follow all their procedure as may be required by them as that

will further help hasten up the whole procedure as regard to the transfer of

your fund to you as designated.

Also have in mind that the Central Bank of Malaysia equally have their own

protocol of operation as stipulated on their banking terms, so delay could

be very dangerous.

earnestly await your urgent response to this matter.

Had a call today from someone with a very think sub-continent accent. 

Caller: Hello my name is Barry

Me: (laughing) Mate your name is not Barry

Caller: Go …. yourself. (They hung up)

 

The Missus and I couldn’t stop laughing.

It’s a sad indictment on society that we have to constantly be watching for these things.

lol.. Mate, you don’t have a thick sub-continent accent. I also don’t think you’d end a call that way.

For those that don’t know me, my background is in IT. Specifically in the last 15 years infrastructure, servers, networking and storage, etc. 

I often get calls from people claiming to be seeing lots of errors coming from my router. That’s quite amusing. Of course they eventually want all your details (which you should never give). 

On one particular call, after leading them on for a few minutes, I asked how do you sleep at night? The caller said he didn’t understand my question. So I asked again: You are trying to rob people, so how do you sleep at night? They immediately hung up.

My favourite was i had a guy call and start his script, I told him he would have to talk to my wife and I'd go get her. I put the phone down and 10 mins later he was still waiting. 

 

He eventually hung up, he called back about 5 mins later and I said I told him he would have to speak to my wife.  He said he waited for her but she never came. I said it is a big house and she is on her way but he would have to wait.

I've always enjoyed the ones from 'Microsoft Tech Support' who have identified a virus on my computer. They then want to go through setting up sharing etc. If I want a laugh I'll play along, sometimes ask them to hold for a few minutes; at least it wastes some of their time where they won't be scamming some old lady.

I love hearing the frustration when I finally tell them I'm using a Mac.

Been getting a lot of text message this last month saying you have a voicemail with a link. 

If you are as well just delete it without opening and definitely don’t click on the link. All scams.
