Today’s scam is brought to you by the letter “F”

When we receive mail such as the following, we often look for curious phrases to run through search engines, more for our one amusement than anything else.

For this message we chose the phrase “released disk”.  We tried the search on Google, and Bing, expecting similar results from all three. Google, returned a variation of this letter on the first page, as did Bing, rather disappointingly, found nothing until page seven.

So, if you’re trying to find out if you’re being fooled, we suggest that you do not as Bing.

Anyway, we digress.

Subject: Regarding Your Unpaid Fund.
From: Miss Rita Okey
Date Sent: 3/26/2015 2:25:18 AM

From the subject, we gather we are going to be offered money of some sort.

Dear Beneficiary,

The money will probably be from some recently deceased unknown stranger.

I am Miss Rita Okey a computer scientist working with central bank of Nigeria. I just started work with C.B.N. and I came across your file which was marked X and your released disk painted RED, I took time to study it  and found out that you have paid VIRTUALLY all fees and but the fund was not released to you.

We read the help wanted sections from time to time and, as a rule, banks do not generally recruit computer scientists.  We have seen files marked X before. As a rule, painting disks, red or any other color, is not recommended. It tends to convert them from floppy disks to sticky disks.

The most annoying thing is that they won’t tell you the truth that on no account will they ever release the fund to you, instead they allow you spend money unnecessarily, I do not intend to work here all the days of my life, I can release this fund to you if you can certify me of my security.

Sadly we are not in the protection racket, else we might be willing to avail ourselves of your kind offer.

I need to do this because you need to know the statues of your Funds and cause for the delay, Please this is like a Mafia setting in Nigeria, you may not understand it because you are not a Nigerian. The only thing needed to release this fund is the 2015 New Payment Authorization Code which will be Fixed in your release disk and confirmation to the FEDERAL MINISTRY OF FINANCE (FMF) for clearance of the transferred amount in your account.

Why are there statues of our funds? We also do not think that being Nigerian would make this any clearer.

Once the 2015 New Payment Authorization Code is obtained funds will immediately reflect in your bank within 24hrs, the code is all that is needed to complete this transaction.

We had a 2012 New Payment Authorization Code, is there a discount for upgrading?

Note that the actual funds are valued at $25 MILLION USD and the lists below are the mafias and banks behind the non release of your funds that t I managed to sneak out for your kind perusal.

 Thank you, Rita, for your efforts, but we feel required to pass.

Should you hear from Rita, do not attempt to reclaim the twenty five million dollars. You will only fail after spending a unknown amount of money.

For you see, this is a fraud.

That is all.
