Aww, I didn't get one. I do get lots of advance fee fraud scammers in my email account though.

They don't get your email. I think they do some kind of cold calling sort of thing where they just blast them off to as many contacts that they can get their hands on. Not really sure since I am not a scammer, but I do save a lot of them and most of the ones I have are pretty badly written and easy to spot. I keep them for posterity and stuff like that. I even got one claiming that they were with the FBI. That one was hilarious.

I could post the whole email if you like, or at least the text.
Here it is:

FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATIONS (F.B.I)
CRIMES MONITORY DIVISION
Anti Money Laundry Department
FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C.
Federal Bureau of Investigation
J. Edgar Hoover Building
935 Pennsylvania Avenue,
NW Washington, D.C. 20535-0001
WITH UNITED NATIONS DEPARTMENT
====================================
FBI NOTIFICATION:Our Ref: FR/938/FBI.USA
====================================
Greeting,

Inline with the "Patriot Act", a statute enacted by the United States
Government that President George W. Bush signed into law on October 26,
2001. The Act which increases the ability of Law Enforcement Agencies to
search telephones,e-mail communications, medical, financial, and other
records;eases restrictions on foreign intelligence gathering within the
United States; expands the Secretary of the TreasuryâEUTMs authority to
regulate financial transactions,particularly those involving foreign
individuals and entities; has prompted us to contact you in
respect of your unclaimed fund.

We the Anti Money Laundry Department of the Federal Bureau of
Investigations with the United nations Organization do hereby inform you that
In our bid to fight against the ranging terrorist threat facing
the United States of America recently,
we have registered your unclaimed fund
through a Certified Bank Draft with the UNIVERSAL COURIER
SERVICE (UCS) in the country of fund origin.

This fund was said to have been held by the Central Bank of Africa due to
your inability to obtain necessary documents and delivery charges required
by the Bank and its affiliates in the past. Thus, we sourced that some
unscrupulous agents of the terrorist inclined nations have devoted their
time using the opportunity to transfer funds into the USA under the
disguise that the fund was meant for you the beneficiaries. However,
after our investigations, we discovered that you had no involvement in

such evil plan, that is why we are contacting you to get the fund out
of its position before it implicates you.From our investigations,
we also gathered that some impostors have ripped several of our
citizens of their money in their bit to claim their fund,
but with this measure, you have little or nothing to worry about,
just follow our instructions,and you will be glad you did.

Note that all the necessary arrangements for the delivery of your
$4,500.00.00 Bank Draft have been completed. In your best interest,
you are urged to send the following details to the Economic Financial
Crimes Committee;

*Full Name:
*Delivery Address:
*Current Phone Number:
*Next of Kin:

In our effort to mitigate scam, the only money you have to pay to them is
$80 (ONLY) for their Security keeping of your Bank Draft, the IMF insisted
that such cost can only be paid once the real beneficiary have contacted
the Economic Financial Crimes Committee, this is for security reason.

You are hereby instructed to contact the Operations Manager with the
information below, and call Him immediately you send him an email:

Name: Mr. MIKE BENSON
Email: mikebenson848@rocketmail.com
Cell Phone Number:+229 674 052-94

Apparently, several individuals who received this email in the past
questioned the legitimacy of its content, but a trial was able to convince
them that the Anti Money Laundry Department of the FBI through the help
of Internet Crime Control Center (IC3) is working tirelessly to stop
illegal fund transfer into the United States and it environ.

Thank you as we look forward to your cooperation on this very crucial matter.
NB: IF YOU HAVE BEEN DEALING WITH OR YOU HAVE DEALT WITH ANY INDIVIDUAL OR
ORGANIZATION AS REGARDS YOUR FUND CLAIMS, YOU ARE ADVISED TO SEIZE FURTHER
CONTACTS WITH THE BEARER AND FORWARD THE PERSON'S DETAIL TO US
DIRECTLY FOR FURTHER INVESTIGATIONS!!!

Regards,
Special Agent FRANK SMITH
(Secretary)
Office of the Director:
FBI Headquarters in Washington, D.C.
