John Edwards seems to be a popular name for fake FBI agents.
We’ve received comments on our previous post regarding agent Edwards, sadly from a recent victim. Now he’s back again as seen below.

Like last time, he still doesn’t know our name.
I received an INTEL MEMO from the WHITE HOUSE in my office today and I must advice you as follows:
Capitalization implies importance, doesn’t it?
1: I received an Intel from our wiretap internet protocol office that my communication with you have been breached by impostors which have prompted immediate action from my side to make sure that this transaction is secured. Today, I issue you this code for communication (G11) which must be contained both in the subject and at the end of any of my email letter to you, This is for your own good.
Someone has hacked into the FBI’s secret secure wiretapping system, so he decides to communicate with us using unencrypted email, as that is much more secure. (G11) will certainly stop the hacking.
Mind you (G11) isn’t in his email any place other than here. Does that mean he’s not who he says he is?
2: With instruction from the White House and the United states Department of Homeland Security, I am informing you that you due consignment box containing your total payment fund of US$10,000,000.00 (Ten Million United States Dollars) is approved for release and delivery to you as soon as you fulfill all “OBLIGATION” and offset the refundable “TAX CLEARANCE LEVY” mandated by the IRS on all consignment that has been in our vault over 3 months.
Since the White House is involved, we must assume that there’s nothing going on in Washington of any significance at this time and the this debt ceiling nonsense is just the press blowing things out of proportion bceause it’s been a slow week for news. Why has the box been in your vault for three months, we got the impression tat there was some urgency to this. What have you been doing for the past three months? Also, where did the $10,000,000 come from? Ours is still in a plastic bag under the litter box. Are you sure it’s ours?
Note that as i write you now, your funds contained in your consignment box is presently in our maximum storage vault in Atlanta, GA and will only be marked cleared for release once you fulfill all “OBLIGATION” stated on your release questionnaire by Homeland security.
This “OBLIGATION” must be very important, it’s all capital letters.
Once I hear from you, I will instruct further.
Agent John Edward
Sadly it seems that someone out there has sent this clown $400.
We cannot state this emphatically enough.
Do not send these people any money. Think it through.
This is just another Fraud.
