This is the final warning you are going to receive from us. 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 is it because you believe we have not been instructed to get you
arrested, 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
put 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 these 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
$180 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

I pleaded on your behalf so that this agency could give you till 7/7/2012
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: $180
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

*Nigerian scams (also called Nigerian 419 scams), are a type of advance fee fraud and one of the most common types of confidence frauds in which the victim is defrauded for monetary gain. There are many variations on this type of scam, including advance fee fraud, Nigerian Letter Fifo’s Fraud, Spanish Prisoner Scam, black money scam, or Detroit/Buffalo scam. The number “419” refers to the article of the Nigerian Criminal Code dealing with fraud. While the scam is not limited to Nigeria, the nation has become associated with this fraud and it has earned an unenviable reputation for being an epicenter of email scam crimes.

EDITOR’S NOTE: If you are scratching your head about the accompanying photo, there is a whole subculture devoted to fucking with 419 scammers, playing along, gaining their trust and then getting them to pose for ridiculous/humiliating photos and post them to the Internet as proof the scammers are who they say they are. This is one such photo.
