The Spam Report: Day #92: ” PAYMENT NOTIFICATION FROM FBI URGENT”
Good morning everyone,
Sorry about missing yesterday, but it was a rather busy day in my world. I apologize.
I’m back today wiith a vengeance. You may remember our past discussions about confusing with details, the goal of every good scammer. They want to sound authoritative enough so you believe them, but vague enough so you can’t wrap your arms around what they’re saying exactly.
Have you ever tried to carry large amounts of sand from one spot to another for a castle your kids insist you need to build without getting it wet? I digress.
Anyhow, somehow the FBI is working with the Central Bank of Nigeria to give me $8.3 million that some woman named “Mr.s Joan C Bailey from OHIO” is also trying to get. If reading that sounds as crazy as it did to write that sentence, you understand what you need to do.
Just hit delete.
Have a great day.
