I never cease to be amazed at the creativity and brazenness of these folks.  The poor grammar and badly written sentences are a dead giveaway but will probably get some responses !  Complete with apicture of Mueller and the American flag !

I got one from a bank and it looked pretty legit. Warning me that someone had accessed a credit card. How would you know they hadnt? It looked almost real until I called the number and it was some party line usa thing. Its really crazy that they cant track this stuff down and stop it. I wanted to report it but to who? There should be a way to just forward it to some police office and they handle it.

You know what really whomps? When they contact paypal and state that YOUR credit card was lost or stolen when it WAS NOT and you have to call to determine how the heck they could deactivate your business mastercard when you haven't even used it yet. Unbelievable what these freakin email scammers can do. :-)

Scammers are pretty impressive, but if you know what to look for, you can usually spot a scam email. I have a video called "Scam Speak" on my YouTube channel that explains some of the commonly used scam tactics. Check it out here and protect yourself! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ag0b9RF5Tao

Hi Bill ... It is amazing how well scammers can portray sites. 

I've learned if you roll your mouse over the banner, you will see that it is a dead link (it doesn't go home although its image description is "Washington Field office banner with FBI seal linking to FBI home).  

Another trick ... click on the banners properties and look for the URL.  Copy and paste that portion of the URL from http:// to .com.  You will be taken to a warning from the real FBI.

There is always something fishy about the graphics/photos.  Check out the URLs under properties for the other two graphics!

Bill, You know when it's written in all Caps that it's a scam. It's too hard to read and they know no one will read it all the way through.

My question is, why do people bother doing this? Do they really get money from anyone? Is is some kind of perverse pleasure to bother people.

One more warning is always great though, thank you.

Have a great week- the news can only get better.

I get this kind of junk a lot. What's the point? It just makes me have to delete more.

People do it because it works. One can easily send out thousands of emails and if just 1% bite, that's a lot of money they just made. If they would put as much effort into getting an education and working honestly, they probably could be rich.
