Just got another one of those ‘we need your bank information to give you money’ scams. I love that it’s supposed to be from the ‘FBI’ but the email says it’s from ‘europ planet’ (firstname.lastname@example.org). Make sure to tell your less technical friends about this. I mean it’s got to be working on SOMEONE or they’d quit right? Anyhow I’m pretty sure I’m safe from FBI’s need for me to have a non-existent DIST. Behold the latest scam in all it’s glory!

This is to notify you that huge funds valued at 8.3million Dollars have been transferred into your account. This transfer

Do reply to this e-mail so we can direct you accordingly where you will obtain this legal wiring document to fully
authorize the crediting of your fund into your main account.
