A new email scam from Nigeria with the FBI

 I just love those scam email letters because they must think we are all really stupid. The latest one is suppose to be from the FBI but is from mrs.monicamichalfbiusang@live.co.uk with the FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION as their "from" address. Here is the letter in its entirety. take note of the $150 "insurance fee" so you can get your ATM card back.

FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C.
Federal Bureau of Investigation

935 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, D.C. 20535-0001


This is to Officially inform you that it has come to our notice and we have thoroughly completed an Investigation with the help of our Intelligence Monitoring Network System that your ATM-CARD is currently with the (S.P..S) Stanbic Postal Service in Nigeria. We have ordered the Federal Government of Nigeria to contact FedEx, Dhl, Ups, Stanbic IBTC, HSBC and other firms to release the bank draft and ATM cards to the SPS (Regular Mail Service), So that they can be mailed out to the rightful owners, because there are too many complains/Rip Off Report coming to the desk of Federal Bureau Of Investigation that people are not getting their Instrument to cash their funds and gratuity, e.g people are not getting their Bank Draft and ATM Cards due to the fact that people are not meeting up with the required demands and amount imposed by some of this delivery companies, firms and other sectors and constant require of fees that are too much for people to handle or pay.

We have completed this investigation and we have verified the entire transaction to be Safe and 100% risk free, due to the fact that we have been assured that your ATM CARD will be delivered to you once your Full Name and Address is confirmed. Delivery of your ATM-CARD is free!!! You only need to pay $150 for insurance only. Therefore, you are instructed to contact the Stanbic Postal Service with the Information below:

E-MAIL: (mrs.monicamichaelfbispoof@gmail.com)
Do contact Mrs.Monica Michael. of the ATM CARD CENTER with your details:

So your files would be updated after which he will send the payment information which you'll use in making payment of $150 via Western Union Money Transfer or Money Gram Transfer for the procurement of your Approval Slip after which the delivery of your ATM CARD will be effected to your designated home address without any further delay. Please if you know you cannot be able to afford the $150 for the delivery of your ATM card via courier company then do not bother to contact Mrs.Monica Michael. we are in the beginning of new year and he should be busy with some other things.

We order you to get back to Mrs.Monica Michael. Only right away. FBI Director

Note: Do disregard any email you get from any impostors or offices claiming to be in possession of your ATM CARD, you are hereby advice only to be in contact with Mrs.Monica Michael. of the ATM CARD CENTER who is the rightful person to deal with in regards to your ATM CARD PAYMENT and forward any emails you get from impostors to Monica Michael so we could act upon and commence

Me back in again - now who in their right mind would contact the FBI at a gmail address? And send all of their contact info to them too? I really got a laugh at that last paragraph about the "impostors," didn't you?
