I have been getting some emails saying they are from the FBI. I went to the FBI website and started filing complaints. Do not respond to these to these emails. You can file complaints on these emails and if you file a complaint, be sure to keep the email.

Some of these emails can sound quite threatening. I just want to make everyone aware of this.




Hi 2ndband,

Wow, thanks for that info. Yeah, I would think that if the FBI wanted to get in touch with you they would not choose to use email as a point of contact.

In some email programs, you can right click and get the full headers, that is the best thing to send to the FBI for fraud alert.

your welcome. I just wanted people to know so they didn't fall for this. Scammers are doing everything they can to get people's information. I cannot emphasize enough to people to beware of these types of things:

You did not win an international lottery

No one from another country left you millions of dollars

You paypal account is not in jeapordy of being lost if you do not verify your information via the link provided

Your bank or any place like that will send you an email asking you to verify information via email, that you account has been compromised to click their link to provide your infomation.

And there are many others. Just be very cautious. A lot of these emails look very official, but they are not. Become an informed consumer.
