Default Dear Beneficiary

This is the new fraud email -- funny as all hell!!! Wonder if any fell for it.


U.S. Department of the Treasury
1500 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, D.C.
Website: http://www.treasury.gov
Date: 9/11/2011

Dear Beneficiary,

I am Timothy F. Geithner. The Secretary of the Treasury under the U.S Department of the Treasury. The executive agency responsible for promoting economic prosperity and ensuring the financial security of the United States. However, by virtue of my position as the Secretary of the Treasury, I have irrevocably instructed the Federal Reserve Bank to approve your fund release via issuance of a CERTIFIED cheque drawn on Standard Chartered Bank california, USA, which is the authourized bank for your fund release.

However, as a former President and Chief Executive Officer of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, and being a versatile banker of repute with about 25 years experience in the financial sector, I wish to state categorically that a CERTIFIED cheque of $6,500,000.00 USD drawn on Standard Chartered Bank will be issued and sent to you via the US Postal Service at no cost to you. Every and all cost associated with the delivery of the cheque has been pre-paid by the U.S Government. The only cost associated with your fund release is the cost of processing a "Fund Clearance Certificate", which is estimated to the value of $150.00 USD. The "Fund Clearance Certificate" is required in accordance with the U.S Monetary Policy; and it is the ONLY expenses you will incurr before the cheque will be sent to your mailing address. Hence, you are advised to send the $150.00 USD via Western Union or MoneyGram ONLY to "Charles Green" who is the nominated receiver for the $150.00 USD. The wiring details is stated below:

Receiver: Charles Green
Receiver's culver city, california, USA
Test Question: Fruit
Answer: Apple
Amount: $150.00 USD

You can get more facts about the U.S. Department of the Treasury on the link below: http://www.treasury.gov/about/Pages/Secretary.aspx

Please get back to me with a quick confirmation of your mailing address and the payment details for the $150.00 USD.

Yours Sincerely,

Timothy F. Geithner
Secretary of the Treasury

It would be funny if we spammed Nairobi or whatever African country sends out those spams, and we hooked a few folks over there for $150 each.

Nairobi is a city, not a country.

Yeah that one would have certainly fooled me. After all, I've had to get 100's of these over the years "Fund Clearance Certificate" and they always cost $1,500.

What a joke, low life losers trying to take your money. I hate em.

Dear Chuck:

Things have been a little tight around here so it was with great elation that I read Timmy's letter. I can really use that money!

Um... I told you things were a little tight, right? My bank accounts are empty and even my closest friends and family won't lend me any more money. Since YOU of all people know I will soon have money to repay my debts I was hoping you could front me the $150 for the "Fund Clearance Certificate?" I'll pay you back with 100% interest so that's $300 for you with no risk. On second thought,I don't know what Western Union charges so let's make it an even $200 so you'll be getting $400. Can't beat that deal, right?

Please respond soon. I may need to sell my car which means you'd have to front me cab fare too, to get into town.

God bless you, in advance.
