As far as phishing scams go, this one shouldn’t be difficult to spot.

It looks like this:

Clues that it’s a scam:

  1. Grammar and spelling.

2:        The FBI is sending you an email to let you know they are sending you 10.7 million dollars?  And they don’t use your name, just Beneficiary.

3:        They tell you that the last banking scam was legal!

4:        They want to put a wire tap on the internet…

5:        The email says that there are a lot of scams on the internet.

6:        Your check will weigh approximately 2.1kg.  That translates to over 4 pounds!  Heavy check.

7:        Your contact is a yahoo account?  Really?  The FBI is using yahoo accounts to send information about 10.7 million dollars?

In conclusion, the scam is pretty funny but definitely worth deleting after you get a laugh over it!
