Kind of, but not really.

I know that there have been plenty of people that have received this same type of email before. The type where they tell you that you have won butt loads of money and all you have to do is tell them every ounce of private information about yourself that you can.

You know, your SSN, bank account #’s, etc…
It’s spam and it’s so blatantly obvious that you would think, “there is no way someone would fall for this crap…”, and you would be right in that thinking.
Then you find out that, once again, people as a general rule are entirely more stupid than you could ever give them credit for.
This is contents of the spam I just came across;
To: (field is empty, not even my own email address is here)
From:InterPol Special Investigation Agent
Dear Friend

I am officially sending you this e-mail in order for you to be aware of the good news of your funds, please before I proceed, I will like you to keep away this message from any other person around you, because we have decided to conclude this issue with you alone.

March 14th 2010 a meeting was held with the General Director of the Interpol and some other top officials in the United Kingdom concerning the online internet scam, in the conclusion of the meeting, I was ordered by the Interpol to fly down to Africa for special investigation concerning the delay of your payment.

After some little investigation, I notice that your funds is still in the Federal Suspense Account” of CIMB Group Investment (CIMB). Meanwhile those people that you have been dealing with are not from the right office, they are only using you to make money for their own benefit.

You need to understand that my coming down to Africa is because of your transaction, and I have to accomplish the transfer before returning back to the United Kingdom, all the legal documentation for your funds are with me here in Africa, what i just need from you now is your corporation, you have to seize communication with any other person different from me to avoid been mislead.

Don’t allow anyone to deceive you, your funds is $6,500,000.00 (Six Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) it was written inside the recording files of your funds.

I have taken your funds documents to the CIMB Group Investment (CIMB) in Africa for confirmation and they have been working on the release of your funds, meanwhile, I will need your information like the stated below so that I can know how to update you soon as
everything has been settled.

Full Name:

Upon the receipt of this information, I will email you or call you and give you code on how to communicate with me and I will always keep you updated concerning the progress of the transfer of your $6,500,000.00 (Six Million Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars Only) once again you are advised to seize all communication with any other office or person to avoid been mislead, and whenever you receive any message from anyone, kindly forward it to me so that i can make a proper investigation on it.

Yours Faithfully
Interpol John
InterPol Special Investigation Agent
United Kingdom

So, in conclusion, if you fell for something like this…you’re an idiot. The end.

About Will King

I've spent my whole life in Upstate New York and I wouldn't want to spend my life anywhere else. My son is perfect, even when he's not and my wife makes me want to slam my head against a brick wall all while keeping me sane. If you can figure all that out, let me in on it.

  2. Roz says:

    So when are you going to send me—er, I mean Interpol John–that info so he can get that $6.5 mil out to you?

    • Will King says:

      I don’t know, maybe it is legit…should I send Interpol John all of my pertinent info? I mean, I don’t want to miss out…

      God, I would love me some $6.5 mil!

  3. Roz says:

    Send him the name/address of someone who’s a real jerk! HA HA HA HA HA!!!

    “Stupid” is a good word for the person who came up with this scam. What real Interpol agent calls himself “Interpol John”? Yeah, that’s a great pickup line. “Heyyy, baby…they call me Interpol John, man of mystery and danger!”
