Funny you would think that the director of the FBI wouldn't type in semi-broken English huh? Also I just can't figure out how they have 28 million in an account for me but without knowing my name, occupation, or nationality.

But I bet the creator of those emails is working his way to 28 Millon, 585 dollars at a time.

For you guys with PayPal accounts or Craigslist accounts, make sure you never give them any information when these fishing emails come. A buddy of mine just got his whole email hacked into and who knows what else and he isn't like some stupid guy.

Always log into your accounts directly. It's funny till somebody gets screwed.

Phishing:

Phish is an Internet scam designed to trick the recipient into revealing credit card, passwords, social security numbers and other personal information to individuals who intend to use them for fraudulent purposes. The scam is known as "phishing" and the communications are sent to appear to look as if they come from reputable companies. The e-mails often instruct the recipient to verify or update account information by requesting a reply to his e-mail with updated information, or by providing the recipient with a link to a website where the new information may be entered. Anyone who receives such an email should not respond to it, or click on any links provided, but should contact the company who purportedly sent the notice, to inform them of the scam.

Guess I need to contact the FBI!

I get amused at some of these. English obviously isn't even a 3rd or 4th language for some of them. I would never open any links or reply or furnish any info on these.

I do forward stuff that supposedly comes from banks, etc. to the fraud link for the real bank. Most of those I've never even had account with the bank.

try 2-3 a week.
I have been hitting my anti virus spam button so most from
the IP locations just go to the spam folder.
