Yikes!

Just got this e-mail, looks like I'm about to be arrested

"Good Day:
We have been watching every single transaction you made since last year until
this 2011 and you have to know that we are also working to make sure your
funds which are suppose to be delivered to you, and also bear in mind that
what ever you emailing us will be forward to the court.
Also we are hereby to notify by the federal bureau of investigation Cotonou
department of the insult you imposed on them by failing to comply by their
requirements.
Your full residential address has been forwarded to us for your immediate
arrest to face your charge but I deemed it fit to give you one more chance to
save yourself from this mess.
We have been told that you have failed to dance by the rule of the FBI which
will warrant 2 years jail sentence. Now I john Francis Pikus the special agent
in charge of the FBI Albany department I am giving you 24 working hours to
effect the payment of the $40.00 usd. To the FBI in republic of Benin
(fbisecurity) with the information written below:
Receiver: EMEKE CHINEDU.
Country: Benin Republic
City: Cotonou
TestQ: warning?
Answer: now
Amount: $40.dollars only"


I guess since they don't know my name, it must be a 'john doe' warrant. Anyone want to pay the $40 to keep me out of jail

Unbelievable! Would anybody actually believe that nonsense? They can't even speak proper English.
Maybe they want the $40 because you failed to dance, lol!
We have been told that you have failed to dance

Has to be authentic based on the flawless grammar.

Mark, I'll help you out and take care of the administrative details, just send the $40 to me and I'll handle the rest.

I've been getting some kind of "Uniform Traffic Ticket" from the New York Department of State. I won't even dignify it with opening.

The sad thing is that these guys make millions of dollars with crap like this. It's all a numbers game. You send out millions of emails and just enough people will believe it to make some money.

I hate to even laugh at this stuff. When I took over my dad's checking account in his final years I got a look at some of the sh** he had been writing checks for and soon I'll be wearing his shoes. As they learn to speak English and I forget how to filter out this junk I don't look forward to getting older.

I guess we must remember....you can't buy or work your way into heaven, you can't buy yourself completely out of trouble (it will bite you back), it is illegal for someone to eat you, and if they can't use proper Engrish to try and get our money, let them go hungry and poor.
