EMAIL SCAM FROM THE FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION (FBI)
It has come to our attention that a FBI scam is circulating through emails. According to the email, an agent is contacting you regarding intercepted boxes at an airport containing large sums of money and you are listed as the beneficiary/receiver. Due to the size of the funds, the FBI has opened an investigation. The email includes several code references from the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) and appears very official. The last paragraph request you to “reply [to the email] within 72 hours or you will be prosecuted in court of law for money laundering, you are instructed to desist from further contact with any bank(s) or person(s) in any part of the world regarding your payment because your consignment has been confiscated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation here in the United States.”
PLEASE BEWARE THIS IS A SCAM.
