And it seems that the FBI isn't proofreading their emails too carefully before sending them out these days...

Meanwhile, base on our interview to the diplomat she said that the consignment box belongs to you, that she was sent to deliver the consignment box to your doorstep not knowing that the content of the box is money.

Now, the diplomat is under detention in our office(FBI) security, and we cannot release her until we carry out our proper investigation on how this huge amount of money managed to be yours before we will release her with the box. So, in this regards you are to reassure and prove to us that the money you are about to receive is legal by sending us the Award Ownership Certificate showing that the money is not illegal.

I cracked up at the "Cincinnati Northern Kentucky International Airport Ohio." I would hope that the FBI would be well aware that CVG is actually in Kentucky.

That is an amazing e-mail.

You better hurry up and request that Award Ownership Certificate from the very reliable-sounding Nigerian man! You don't want to be charged for money laundry!!!!

By the FBI's Anti-Terrorist and Monetary Crimes Division, no less! And they'll be really upset if I make them go to the trouble of arresting me for money laundry because that's time they have to take away from arresting terrorists!

The FBI has had a busy year, apparently!

No wonder they're not catching terrorists, since they've had to devote so many man-hours to hunting down recipients of bequests, winners of lotteries, and beneficiaries of funds!
