Here is another twist on the old FBI spam. The FBI does not involve itself this deeply into monetary crimes—they uphold the law, they don’t break the law. They don’t send e-mails to ordinary citizens, and they don’t “release funds”—they aren’t bankers. While the address looks legit, there is no doubt that it’s forged, and anyone can forge addresses and headers. If you receive one of these, just delete it.

ATTENTION FUND BENEFICIARY,
This is an official advice from the FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION (FBI). It has come to our notice that some certain individuals have used your name as the beneficiary of funds worth Millions of United States Dollars from Nigeria and other African country. These individuals with their collaborating banks knowing full well that they do not have enough facilities to effect this payment from any part of the world to your account used what we know as a Secret Diplomatic Transit Payment (S.D.T.P) as well as the ATM card system to pay this fund which was not completed till this day. Direct transfers are difficult and Secret Diplomatic Transit Payment (S.D.T.P) are not made unless the funds are related to terrorist activities and we ask why must your payment be made in secret transfer if your transaction is legitimate. We do not want you to get into trouble as soon as these funds reflect in your account, so it is our duty as an International commission to correct these little problems before this fund will be cre
Due to the increased difficulty and security by the American authorities when funds come from outside of Europe the F.B.I bank commission for Europe has stopped your transfer. We govern and oversee funds transfer for the World Bank and the rest of the world. We advice you contact us immediately, as the funds have been Stopped and are being held in our custody, until you can be able to provide us with a Diplomatic Immunity Seal of Transfer (DIST) document within 3 days from the local bank that authorize the transfer from where the funds was transferred from to certify that the funds that you are about to receive are terrorist/drug free or we shall have cause to impound the Payment and subsequent prosecution. We shall release the funds immediately we receive these legal documents and make sure that you get your payment without any further delay.
We have decided to contact you directly to acquire the proper verifications and proof from you to show that you are the rightful person to receive this fund, because of the amount involved. Be informed that the funds are now with a top bank in the United State in your name and under the custody of the FBI, but right now we have ask the bank not to release the fund to anybody that comes to them, unless we ask them to do so, because we have to carry out our investigations first before releasing the fund to you. You are to forward the document to us immediately if you have it in your possession, if you do not have it, let us know so that we will direct you where to obtain the document and send to us so that we will ask the bank holding the funds, to go ahead and credit your account immediately.
An FBI Identification Record and Diplomatic Immunity Seal Of Transfer (DIST) often referred to as a Criminal History Record or Rap Sheet, is a listing of certain information taken from fingerprint submissions retained by the FBI in connection with arrests and, in some instances, federal employment, naturalization, or military service. These Condition Is Valid until 30th of July, 2009, after we shall take actions on canceling the payment and then charge you for illegally moving funds out of the country under the jurisdiction of the United Nations. Guarantee: Funds will be released on confirmation of the document.
Final Instruction; 1. Credit payment instruction: Irrevocable credit guarantee.
2. Beneficiary has full power when Validation is cleared. 3. Beneficiaries bank in U.S.A., can only release funds. 4. Upon confirmation from the World Bank / United nations.
5. Bearers must clear bank protocol and validation request.
NOTE: We have asked for the Diplomatic Immunity Seal Of Transfer (DIST) document to ensure the most complete and up-to date records possible for the enhancement of public safety, welfare and security of society while recognizing the importance of individual privacy rights. If you fail to provide the Documents to us, we will take appropriate action against you for not proving that the funds are legitimate. The United States Department of Justice Order 556-73 establishes rules and regulations for the subject of an FBI Identification Record to obtain a copy of his or her own Record for review. The FBI Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division processes these requests to check illegal activities in USA and beyond. An individual may request a copy of his or her own FBI Identification
Record for personal review or to challenge information on the Record, Other reasons an individual may request a copy of his or her own Identification Record may include international adoption or to satisfy a requirement to live or work in a foreign country or receive funds from another country, i.e. Diplomatic Immunity Seal of Transfer, letter of good conduct, criminal history Background, etc.) We look forward to hearing from you and be rest assured that your individual rights will be protected while we ensure that you receive your funds. We are sorry for what you have gone through and we want to provide justice.
