We have officially gone through a full baseball season's worth of spam/scam email. Hopefully this is helping.
Here's a viewer-submission from James K. and it's about as ridiculous a premise as any we've shown before.
Don't fall for this. Just hit delete.

According to the ethics of an office, introduction is always very important on a first contact like this. I am Mr. James W. McJunkin, Director Anti-Crime Department Unit of the Federal Bureau of Investigation Washington, D.C USA.
This Official Memorandum is to inform you that we discovered that some officials whom work under the United States government have attempted to divert your Funds (US$10,500,000:00) through a back-door channel. We actually discovered this today, through our Secret Agents under the Disciplinary Unit of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) after we apprehended (Mr. Ali Aeraby) a terrorist suspect.
The mentioned suspect was apprehended at the Dulles International Airport early this morning, as he attempted to carry the enormous cash value of US$10,500,000:00 outside the shores of USA. In respect to the money laundering decree of United States, such amount of money can not be moved in cash outside United States because such attempt is a criminal offense and is punishable under the money laundering act of 1982 of United States of America. This decree is a globalize law applicable in most developed countries in order to check-mate terrorism and money laundering.
