I get so sick of getting e-mails from scammers claiming to be with the irs, state, etc. So let's play their game:

Their letter:

Head of Assets Forfeiture and Tax Investigation Unit

EFCC Headquarters

No.5, Fomella Street,

Off Adetokunbo Ademola Crescent,

Wuse II





Re: Your Funds Intercepted





We write to inform you that our intelligent monitoring network intercepted a Trunk Box which contain funds valued $5.5m USD. After we have conducted due investigation and verifications, the two men whose name has been withheld for security reasons confessed of been responsible for your inability of receiving your contract inheritance funds.





We have been able to ascertain that these imposters deliberately hindered you from not been able to receive your funds by conniving with the agents in charge of your funds release by demanding excessive fees for their own selfish reasons.





We intercepted this Trunk Box when they were trying to smuggle it to The United Kingdom and we have deposited the box with our security company.





You are therefore requested to contact Barrister Aaron Wilson via email: privatefirm@mcmug.org to help you process the release of your Trunk Box to you. We trust him to help you to process the release as soon as you open communication with him.





We hope to redeem the image of this country from all the scams perpetrated on innocent people.





Please do not hesitate to email US if there are any further complications for guidelines.

Economic And Financial Crime Commission

Head of Assets Forfeiture and Tax Investigation Unit

EFCC Headquarters

its 419 scam.

The number "419" refers to the article of the Nigerian Criminal Code (part of Chapter 38: "Obtaining Property by false pretences; Cheating") dealing with fraud.[5] The American Dialect Society has traced the term "419 fraud" back to 1992

"401 scammers" are fiendish and diabolical evil-doers, who try to convince the unwary that Rhode Island ('Ile de Rhodesia') is actually a state.

Slow, but steady:

"you should send me a currect phone and address, do you think we are here to play? "

My reply:

Sir, that is a correct phone and address. Do you think I am here to play?

You have $5.5 million that belongs to me. How about you e-mail me a picture of yourself holding up a sign that says "we r da nubz" to prove you are who you say you are then we'll talk.
