The FBI today is providing a warning to the public against an ongoing scheme involving jury service and internet/phones fraud. The public needs to be aware that individuals identifying themselves as U.S. court employees have been telephonically contacting citizens and advising them that they have been selected for jury duty. These individuals ask to verify names and Social Security numbers then ask for credit card numbers. If the request is refused, citizens are then threatened with fines illegally.

The judicial system does not contact people telephonically and ask for personal information such as your Social Security number, date of birth or credit card numbers. If you receive one of these phone calls, do not provide any personal or confidential information to these individuals. This is an attempt to steal or to use your identity by obtaining your name, Social Security number and potentially to apply for credit or credit cards or other loans in your name. It is an attempt to defraud you. Crime and fraud is real, so be careful.

Working closely with our partners in intelligence, law enforcement, military, and diplomatic circles, the FBI’s primary responsibility is to neutralize terrorist cells and operatives here in the United States and help dismantle terrorist networks/money laundry and internet fraud worldwide. Although protecting the United States from terrorist attacks and money laundry is our first priority, we remain committed to the defense of America against foreign intelligence threats as well as the enforcement of federal criminal laws, all while respecting and defending the Constitution.

If you’ve ever watched one of those crime dramas on TV and heard the term “NCIC” mentioned in passing and wondered what it was, you’re probably not alone.

NCIC, which stands for National Crime Information Center, is one of the unsung heroes of crime-fighting—little known to the public, but used every day by law enforcement officers nationwide and even across the border to take terrorists and criminals off the street, find missing persons and property, and save lives.

We’re very proud of NCIC’s legacy, but what’s most important to us is what it can do today,” says Bush. “We’re constantly trying to make it better and faster.” And we have, with a major technical upgrade in 1999 and important additions of terrorism and gang information in recent years.

    In my experience with Nigerians. Not all of them are liars or scam artists. I have been to that country, it is beautiful & well cultured. I have friends that work in many different Govt agencies, around the world.Scams are everywhere! Many different countries including USA, we do get alot of scams but that’s are all over the world. It seems that the majority is coming from Nigeria, But that isn’t true. The biggest power is from the Canada or the USA people. The Govt is trying to get control. The outside world believes that American people are selfish and rude, not to mention gullible. They are right we are gullible. We want something for nothing, sometimes. We have our own dreams and fantasies. And they prey on us. But out there they here that we are the land of the free. We do have some freedom, to choose. That comes to these scams, from others using people that went public. When I got this email from Mueller, I called his home and talked to him. It would never be published to the public. We are still the public! the government has different ways on checking on us. The internet is no different. All of my internet connections is regulated by the govt. But unless I am doing something wrong, they won’t regulate my email. No one should ever give there personal ID to anyone over the internet. CBN has a website that has a forum, post it. Websites can be designed to do some bad things to us, people. Search anything that you do not recognized, anyone that you do not trust or anything that has many different domains. Have them researched and searched. One thing also, watch out for some domains, they have virus that can spread. If you believe you have one. Scan you computer on slow scan from your antivirus program. It might find that problem that might be slowing or crashing you system. USA people are the one’s that actually send them out. I was born a red blooded american and by god I will die one. Thank you have a lovely day.

    Listen folks, you need to know how to look for the tells.

    1. The e-mail is poorly written. If the US Government was in the habit of e-mailing people thinly-veiled threats, which they absolutely are not, they wouldn’t read like something written by someone who has a small child’s grasp of the English language. Granted there’s the perception the world over that Americans are dumb, but even if there were some truth to that, one would expect the FBI to employ people capable of articulating themselves much better than an overeager Nigerian scammer can.

    2. The FBI does not make it a habit to forewarn their targets. To do so would be to risk compromising the investigation. So if they suspected you of something, they’d likely have already taken you in for questioning by now. So ironically, that this e-mail even exists exposes it as the scam that it is.

    3. If the FBI even so much as suspected that the funds were being used for terrorism, they’d have already seized them, and you wouldn’t have been contacted to claim them. In fact you wouldn’t receive an e-mail telling you to prove that the money is legit, you’d have been detained for questioning as a terrorism suspect.

    4. Consider the truth behind the claims that the e-mail makes. For example, it claims that the “FBI knows that you’ve been in contact with known scammers about these alleged funds. If this is the first e-mail that you’ve received about these funds, then you couldn’t possibly have been in contact with anyone about them, right? So how could they possibly claim to know that? They can’t. It’s a poorly conceived intimidation tactic. So if any of the information in the e-mail is inherently false, then you can safely assume that the rest of the e-mail is also false.

    As an aside, please do not assume that having received any scam e-mails prior to this one counts as contact with scammers. You are not responsible for any unsolicited e-mails that you receive, so simply getting a prior scam e-mail doesn’t mean that this e-mail’s claims are legitimate. For that matter, neither does responding to one of those previous scam e-mails, telling the scammer to go fornicate himself rectally with a rusty metal pipe. Though that, while fun to do, isn’t recommended.

    5. Consider that while the e-mail claims to have funds for you, which implies that the sender should know who you are, you’re only ever addressed as “FUND BENEFICIARY”. They have no clue who you are. To date, not one of the hundreds of scam e-mails I have received had my name anywhere in it, and when pressed to provide proof that they knew who they were speaking to, every single one of the scammers became non-communicative. So if you get one of these without your name on it, then that’s a huge red flag right there. Especially when that e-mail claims to come from a Government entity like the FBI, who will not contact you out of the blue.

    Do not, under any circumstances, fall for their excuses. While this particular e-mail is written on the premise that you have to prove who you are to claim the funds, that’s a ruse meant to mask the fact that they have no clue who they are talking to. They send these e-mails to thousands of people, and hope that even a small percentage of their victims are gullible enough to buy their lies. That they don’t have even your name should raise a red flag. And do not, under any circumstances, given them information that they could use to personally identify you.

    Here are some tips, straight from the FBI on how to deal with e-mails like this one.

    Tips

    Here are some tips you can use to avoid becoming a victim of cyber fraud:
     Do not respond to unsolicited (spam) e-mail.
     Do not click on links contained within an unsolicited e-mail.
     Be cautious of e-mail claiming to contain pictures in attached files, as the files may contain viruses. Only open attachments from known senders. Virus scan the attachments if possible.
     Avoid filling out forms contained in e-mail messages that ask for personal information.
     Always compare the link in the e-mail to the link you are actually directed to and determine if they actually match and will lead you to a legitimate site.
     Log on directly to the official website for the business identified in the e-mail, instead of “linking” to it from an unsolicited e-mail. If the e-mail appears to be from your bank, credit card issuer, or other company you deal with frequently, your statements or official correspondence from the business will provide the proper contact information.
     Contact the actual business that supposedly sent the e-mail to verify if the e-mail is genuine.

    By the way, folks, this is straight from the FBI website:

    Government agencies do not send unsolicited e-mails of this nature. The FBI, Department of Justice, and other United States government executives are briefed on numerous investigations, but do not personally contact consumers regarding such matters. In addition, United States government agencies use the legal process to contact individuals. These agencies do not send threatening letters/e-mails to consumers demanding payments for Internet crimes.

    So hey, if nothing else, that alone should alleviate any concerns that these threatening e-mails are real. They’re not.

    The CITI BANK knowing fully well that they don’t have enough facilities to effect this payment to your account; they used what we know as secret diplomatic transit payment S.D.T.P to pay this fund via wire telegraphic.

    We are mortgage brokers, have had responses from the two following people,
    offering to fund our projects, they are advertising on legitimate sites.
    Vijai Nath Rai firms supposed to be in the UK, the other one is, Pakeel Investment group, supposed to be in Dubai United Arab Emirates.

    I think they both are scammers, they want to collect Insurace premiums before a so-called loan , and naturally wanta all banking information.
    has anyone experienced these characters?

  23. carlos villamar-- -- -- June 16th, 2012 12:20 pm

    Pakeel Investment Group on linked contacted me with similar loan scam. They claimed they would fund 5M to 50M business loans @ 4 % after going through their surety company in Dubai. They are all over linked in and the intertnet and also spell investment as 1nvestment.

    I wish someone would take down all these frickin scammers!

  24. Jerry Tyler-- -- -- February 9th, 2013 5:58 pm
