Thank you for your submission to the FBI Internet
Tip Line. A review of the information you
provided revealed that you are being approached
over the Internet to participate in an advanced
fee scam. There are several variations of the
scam, using different names for the organization
sponsoring the lottery, but most claim to be in
the Netherlands.

The United States Secret Service (USSS) has
developed an excellent, detailed description of
this fraud scheme, which can be accessed at
http://www.secretservice.gov/alert419.shtml. If
you have been victimized by one of these schemes,
please forward appropriate written documentation
to the USSS, Financial Crimes Division, 1800 G
St., NW, Room 942, Washington, D.C. 20223, or
telephone (202) 406-5850.

You do not need to forward the emails to us. If
you have not, simply delete them from your
computer. Also, if you know that you are
receiving spam mail, it is advisable not to open
them, because even if you do not reply, the sender
has validated your email address. And, you may
get other spam mail.

For your information, the Internet Tip Line (ITL)
was created on 9/11/01, in response to the
terrorist attacks upon America. We quickly
established a mechanism for the public to submit
information to the FBI via the Internet, and we
have thus far received over 1,000,000 tips from
around the globe. Our operation is completely
automated and paperless. Submitted tips are
received immediately, reviewed within minutes and
prioritized by trained Professional Support
personnel, and Agents set action leads within the
hour, as appropriate.

We encourage you to share this information with
your family, friends, and co-workers, and
encourage them to not hesitate to submit
information they may deem of interest to the FBI.


The FBI does not maintain an email address to
submit information or attachments to directly;
therefore, please do not reply directly to this
message via your email client. The FBI maintains
an automated system that is designed to track all
information received, to ensure that all tips are
addressed in a timely and efficient manner.
Therefore, please visit the FBI.GOV Web site again
should you have occasion to submit additional
information. We WILL NOT open or respond to
“reply” email.

This came to me while chopping wood the other day. You've heard don't sweat the small stuff. I say save it for later and use it for kindling
