    I recieved this e-mail and still looking into it, but I dont know where else to go. I really thought this was real and almost fell for it. The only reason I looked into it was because of the large amount of money offered to me. I googled some of these names and for a while I thought, maybe I did have this money waiting for me. It all sounded so good, TOO good infact. Even if I did have this money waiting I still would be skeptical. Thanks for reading

  2. Casey, 06 June, 2010

    i recived this e-mail too, in fact i have recived a number of them. their all scams, you just have to look at the way the e-mail is written.

  3. Maria, 10 June, 2010

    I have received that following scam emails all from the same email:


    The Headings were as follows:


    : Federal Bureau of Investigation Internet fraud Division

    : Counter-terrorism Division and Cyber Crime Division

    : Federal Bureau of Investigation

    : Federal Bureau of Investigation/Reply

    First of all: If really some money is found by the authorities, it is never refunded to anybody. So, don’t fall for these or similar scams.
    A simple search on our online database with more than 300,000 active scammer e-mail addresses on showed me that this scammer is already stored. Reading the mail and similar ones of “ROBERT S. MUELLER III” makes me as an African Citizen laugh after 3 seconds. If you know the way of thinking of these Mugus then you see the Black African Editor behind this mail.

    Thanks for reading,
    have a nice day, and always stay safe,

    I was approached by this guy last night until I prodded him with question after question until he realized that I caught him lying his teeth out and dropped the conversation. Today he has been using my name & contacting other people to scam.
    I am disabled and subsist on SSDI only. Being in hard times,
    this is can be so good sounding to people in dire straits. But as the old adage says,”If it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn’t.”

  6. Crisdee, 31 January, 2011

    I have the same experienced that you have guys and for the same reason i also contacted this person. That’s a big sum of money by the way and also in this day who wont need it? Just 3 days ago I receive an email from this

    [email protected]

    telling me that his from the FBI. Some scared stuff was sent to me. But just today i receive another response but then i noticed that the font color of the address were pink FBI wont use such color cause i think it’s some what unethical and also feminine which of course their not. Hopefully all those spams well be gone.

    You FBI’s out their please protect the innocent people here in the cyberspace and do protect your names from this persons who are using it for their own good and benefits. If they get any…..

    God bless everyone…….

  7. Kevin Mwazvita saungweme, 16 February, 2011

    I too have received this email and immediately realised it was a scam. I was not at all intimidated that the message came from the FBI because i knew the reference to the FBI was false

  8. Diego, 01 May, 2011

    Sometimes I wonder how you, so called American, can almost rule the world having so little nothing in your brains!

  9. scott, 25 August, 2011

    i receaved this e-mail too but i know to cheack the name of the fbi agent on the web and found out the the name given is that of the director of the fbi this time but i think we should all talk then contact the real FBI to try to put a stop to it

  10. Yvonna Chegey, 25 August, 2011

    Well, it is never bad to inform the FBI. Their address:

    But that does not really help the next un-aware internet user if he receives another scam email. It is always a good idea to report scam email addresses (with the email text) to and publish it here on

    Have a safe time, Yvonna

  11. Barbara Frankel, 08 December, 2011

    Today I received an e-mail stating that it is from Robert S. Mueller that I am a
    beneficiary and my payment has been released.and that I need to contact the
    payment officer Mr Andy Fox with further information about myself i.e. my current
    cell, current occupation, bank name, age, international passport/working ID Card.
    I does not say what I am beneficiary of but it does say that I must be prepared to
    send $105 for the Delivery of my Funds which is to be sent to me via an ATM Swift Card . I t is then signed with Mr. Mueller’s name.
    I immediately knew it was a scam. I answered the e-mail to let them know that
    this was a scam. The e-mail goes to ; [email protected].
    Is there a way something can be done with these scams?

  12. Bruce s, 03 January, 2012

    Who ever all most fell for that is a fool!

  13. Bo, 11 April, 2012

    I just got one of these, looks like someone is trying to run an old scam. Only this time the email returns to [email protected]

    Is there any way to catch these people? Internet track the emails?

    Decided to check this out. FBI probably wouldn’t be announcing themselves as FBI in email would they? Plus good people should know when they re due money and where it should be coming from.

  14. Marika M Crockett, 10 July, 2012

    It also said I have a bank account with $10.500,000.00 Ok all I have are repaid cards and no bank account.

  16. janet, 02 November, 2012

    I just got threatened by this dickhead read below!!!!

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

    Attention Beneficiary

    This is the final warning you are going to receive from me do you get me? I hope you understand how many times this message has been sent to you?.

    We have warned you so many times and you have decided to ignore our e-mails or because you believe we have not been instructed to get you arrested and today if you fail to respond back to us with the payment details below,then we would first send a letter to the MAYOR of the city where you reside and direct them to close your bank account until you have been jailed and all your properties will be confiscated by the FBI,CIA and other enforcement agency. We would also send a letter to the company/agency that you are working for so that they could get you fired until we are through with our investigations because a suspect is not suppose to be working for the government or any private organization.

    Your ID which we have in our database have been sent to all the crimes agencies in America for them to inset you in their website as an internet fraudsters and to warn people from having any deals with you. This would have been solved all this while if you had gotten the CERTIFICATE SIGNED,ENDORSED AND STAMPED as you where instructed in the e-mail below. This is the federal bureau of investigation (FBI) am writing in response to the e-mail you sent to us and am using this medium to inform you that there is no more time left to waste because you have been given a mandate. As stated earlier to have the document endorsed, signed and stamped without failure and you must adhere to this directives to avoid you blaming yourself at last when we must have arrested and jailed you for life and all your properties confiscated.

    You failed to comply with our directives/instruction and that was the reason why we didn’t hear from you, as our director has already been notified about you get the process completed yesterday and right now the WARRANT OF ARREST has been signed against you and it will be carried out in the next 48hours as strictly signed by the FBI director. We have investigated and found out that you didn’t have any idea when the fraudulent deal was committed with your information’s/identity and right now if you ID is placed on our website as a wanted person, I believe you know that it will be a shame to you and your entire family because after then it will be announce in all the local channels that you are wanted by the FBI.

    As a good Christian and a Honest man, I decided to see how i could be of help to you because i would not be happy to see you end up in jail and all your properties confiscated all because your information’s was used to carry out a fraudulent transactions, i called the EFCC and they directed me to a private attorney who could help you get the process done and he stated that he will endorse, sign and stamp the document at the sum of $98 usd only and i believe this process is cheaper for you.

    You need to do every possible thing today and tomorrow to get this process done because our director has called to inform me that the warrant of arrest has been signed against you and once it has been approved, then the arrest will be carried out, and from our investigations we learnt that you were the person that forwarded your identity to one impostor/fraudsters in Nigeria when he had a deal with you about the transfer of some illegal funds into your bank account which is valued at the sum of $10.500,000.00 usd.

    I pleaded on your behalf so that this agency could give you till 10/19/2012 so that you could get this process done because i learnt that you were sent several e-mail without getting a response from you, Bear it in mind that this is the only way that i can be able to help you at this moment or you would have to face the law and its consequences once it has befall on you. You would make the payment through western union money transfer with the below details.





    AMOUNT: $98

    Senders Full Name:

    Sender Full Address:


    Send the payment details to me which are senders name and address, mtcn number, text question and answer used and the amount sent. Make sure that you didn’t hesitate making the payment down to the agency by today so that they could have the certificate endorsed, signed and stamped immediately without any further delay. After all this process has been carried out, then we would have to proceed to the bank for the transfer of your compensation funds which is valued at the sum of $10.500,000.00 usd which was suppose to have been transferred to you all this while.

    Note all the crimes agencies have been contacted on this regards and we shall trace and arrest you if you disregard this instructions. You are given a grace today to make the payment for the document after which your failure to do that will attract a maximum arrest and finally you will be appearing in court for act of terrorism,money laundering and drug trafficking charges, so be warned not to try any thing funny because you are been watched.

    First off, the FBI will only notify important matters by certified mail or a knock on your door. Secondly, there would not be a reuest for a payment. Thirdly…..the IRS would be really wanting to talk to the reipients. Come on people. report these scams quickly.

  20. Nick, 14 February, 2013

    Just delete it. You’ll get more so delete them too and don’t waste your time on it.
