Got the same one about 3 weeks ago. So did another NACHI inspector in Olympia. What a pain.

Yep, got that too last night.

Got it last night but it was delivered straight to the spam folder. So I didn’t bother even to reply to it.

I got this too, unfortunately for the sender, I spent a long time in IT security and in detection of internet crime. I’ve passed the information off to my Security Consultancy Company and they are going to investigate.

They’ve already identified a mime-encoded header in the email that allows the other end to track where mails are sent from, which provides further information. It’s a typical Phishing exercise, where the first e-mail opens the door and then is followed by a series of seemingly unrelated mails each of which builds a profile about you until they have sufficient to steal you Identify, or money or both.

I’ll be posting updates as I get them on the OntarioACHI message board here.

My team have already identified that the mail was sent from a town called Kachia in Central Nigeria.

Just got the same one yesterday just deleted it looked like a scam.

Fortunately this email went straight to my spam folder too.

I asked for a face-to-face meeting with Mr Pil at Ali Hassans shop in Kachia, and requested I bring along a couple of friends from the FBI. It’s gone strangely silent from his end.

No threat at all and I get them at least once a week. As for the FBI they have bigger criminals to catch.

I never question you on Safety Kevin, as I recognise that the training you’ve had puts you in a uniquely experienced position. Why is it you suggest you know more than others in areas you obviously do not:
