Christopher Wray FBI Scam Email

The FBI Email Scam is pretty standard, I receive probably one every month on average. Some of the email scams that claim to be from the FBI are very poor and some attempt to be threatening.

All of the FBI email scams I have received all follow the same patterns:

  • The FBI Email Scammers will ask for money
  • The emails are typically long and poorly written
  • The FBI email scams use publicly available email addresses

Below is an email from a scammer claiming to be an FBI employee. In this particular FBI scam email, he claims to be Christopher A Wray and includes a link to Wikipedia.

Christopher A Wray is indeed the current director of the FBI but think about it logically for a minute. The director of the FBI would not be emailing random people asking for $60 in gift cards.

ATTENTION!

This is the final warning you are going to receive from us.I hope you understand how many times this message has been sent to you? We have warned you several times and you have ignored our e-mail. If you fail to respond back to us, then we would be forced to contact other security agencies and have your name blacklisted.

We would also send a letter to the company/agency that you are working to suspend you until we are through with our investigations, Your Identification which we have in our database has been sent to all the crime agencies for them to insert you in their website as an internet fraudster and to warn people from having any deals with you.

This would have been solved all this while if you had gotten the CERTIFICATE SIGNED, ENDORSED AND STAMPED as you were instructed in the e-mail below.

The federal bureau of investigation (FBI) is using this medium to inform you that there is no more time left to waste because you have been given a mandate. As stated earlier to have the document endorsed, signed and stamped without failure and you must adhere to these
directives to avoid you being arrested.

You failed to comply with our directives/instructions, and right now the WARRANT OF ARREST has been signed against you and it will be carried out in the next 24hours as strictly signed by the FBI Director.

We have investigated and believe (but have no proof) that you didn't have any idea when the fraudulent deal was committed with your information/identity and right now if your ID is placed on our website as a wanted person, I believe you know that it will be a shame to you and your entire family because after then it will be announced in all the local channels that you are wanted by the FBI.

I decided to see how i could be of help to you because i would not be happy to see you end up in jail and all your properties confiscated all because your information was used to carry out a fraudulent transactions, i called the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission Of USA and they directed me to a private attorney who could help you get the process done and he stated that he will endorse, sign and stamp the document at the sum of $60.00USD only and i believe this process is cheaper for you.

You need to do every possible today and tomorrow to get this process done because our director has called to inform me that the warrant of arrest has been signed against you and once it has been approved, then the arrest will be carried out, and from our investigations we learnt that you were the person that forwarded your identity to one impostor/fraudsters in Benin Republic when he had an deal with you about the transfer of some illegal Lottery funds which is valued at Millions of dollars with proofs.

I pleaded on your behalf so that this agency could give you till (1) day or two day from now so that you could get this process done because i learnt that you were sent several email without getting a response from you, Bear it in mind that this is the only way that i can be able to help you at this moment or you would have to face the law and its consequences once it has befall on you.

You are advised to send the $60.00 through a gift card, Steam wallet card or Google play card or iTunes card and forward the copy of the card to me.

Make sure that you don't hesitate in sending the fee so that they could have the certificate endorsed,signed and stamped immediately without any further delay. After all this process has been carried out, then we would have to proceed to the bank for the transfer of your compensation funds to be complete which was supposed to have been transferred to you all this while.

Note/ all the crime agencies have been contacted in this regard and we shall trace and arrest you if you disregard these instructions.

You are given a grace to make the payment for the document after which your failure to do that will attract a maximum arrest and finally you will be appearing in court for act of terrorism, money laundering and drug trafficking charges, so be warned not to try anything funny
because you are been watched.

Expecting your anticipated- Co-operation.

Another fake FBI Email is below, again this one is typical and is impersonating director Christopher Wray. The only real difference is on this FBI scam email is the scammer would like $50 sent by gift cards.

Everything you can see in these FBI scam email examples is lies and deceit. This particular scammer claims he will jail me for life and a lot of other nonsense.

As you can see in both fake FBI scam emails, they are both very similar to each other. The scammers attempt to extract money using threats of arrest and it is simply nothing but lies and nonsense.

The third example of the FBI email scam is again similar to the first two examples. One thing is apparent in all the examples shown, the grammar is shocking to read. If I had to bet, I would say English is not the scammer’s first language.
