    I received an Email telling me that I have an inheritance of 10.5 million coming to me, and that the FBI has taken over the disbursement of funds because of the unreliable banks in this country. Of course they want all my personal information sent to them but the funny thing was this last sentence. It reads:-

    Note: You will be charged for money laundering and terrorist activities if you fail to obtain the Fund Ownership Certificate within 72 hours as instructed, therefore you have been advised to quickly get back to us immediately, so that we can direct you on how to obtain the above mention document from the funds originated country.

    If I suddenly disappear from this board, you know I have been arrested as a terrorist. LOL

    Is there a bounty out for you...we might be able to all get some more fabric if we turn you in...now on the other hand, when you get the $, remember we didn't turn you in and you get to reward us with more fabric....either way, "we win", lol.

    I cringe to think how many folks may fall for this scam.
    This one is about as far out as I can imagine!
