The fake "International Monetary Fund" email below is a scam. Recipients are asked to delete it and should not follow the instructions in it. The fake email is being sent by scammers who are attempting to trick their potential victims into sending them money or personal information by impersonating someone else. An advance-fee scam is a form of fraud and one of the most common types of confidence trick. The scam typically involves promising the victim a significant share of a large sum of money, in return for a small up-front payment, which the fraudster requires in order to obtain the large sum.

    I recently was sent a e-mail from a close friend . My friend informed me that she had recieved a large amount of money through the IMF and her agent was currently on-line. I contacted the agent beliveing my friend and was given a format seen above

    Name, Adress Etc, . With in minutes I was informed I was awared 110,000 dollars but had to provide 980 dollars up front.

    Yes excited but unable to provide the upfront money . The my friend sends an e-mail and said I should ask for alternative payments. Went back to the IMF agent and shwas already offering alternative ways I could pay the up front money.

    However being overwhlmed, I replied this would have to continue tomarrow as I needed help due to the symptoms of my strokes. I spoke with my sister the following day who worked in the banking industry befire retireing and immediateky she said "RUN" grants do not require upfront money nore all the banks requested I deal with .. My point it was not my friend it was a actor and it was well scripted ... Please Becareful!

    I have no money and would have lost my grocery money without asking questions and having the conversation with my sister.. In the end the Agent insulted me and said " you are a weak man"

    No reply just greatfull I was not fooled.

    Reply-To: surrogate_c@aol.com

    SURROGATE COURT, 152 GENESEE ST, AUBURN,

    NY USA (New York STATE SUPREME COURT)

    OVER-DUE PAYMENT RELEASED. FINALLY, YOUR FUND IS NOW HERE IN THE USA AWAITING

    TO BE SHIPPED TO YOUR ADDRESS.

    The reconciliation of accounting data to budgetary data is required under

    Government Code (GC) sections 124 and 344. GC 260 requires information in the

    State Controller’s Budgetary/Legal Basis Annual Report to account for funds on

    the same basis as that of the applicable Governor’s Budget. GC 13344 requires

    departments to prepare and maintain financial and accounting data for the

    Governor’s Budget and related documents, and the Budgetary/Legal Basis Annual

    Report described in GC 12460, according to the methods and bases provided in

    regulations, budget letters, and other directives of Department of Finance

    (Finance). By law, year-end financial reports must be prepared consistent with

    the applicable budget. Information provided to Finance for the Governor’s

    Budget must be consistent with information provided to the State Controller’s

    Office (SCO) for the Budgetary/Legal Basis Annual Report.

    The following instructions will assist Departmental accounting and budget staff

    to reconcile year-end financial reports to budget schedules in accordance with

    government code and state policy. Sequel to the above specifications, the

    management of the Fund Reconciliation Department here in New York City USA,

    wishes to let you know that every precept regarding your funds has been

    concluded. You will be receiving your funds from this Surrogate Court any

    moment from now. We take, keep and make report of every transaction done here

    in the USA. Investigations gathered by the Fund Regulatory Agency {IMF}, shows

    you have been receiving numerous emails from several offices requesting you to

    claim your funds. In some cases, you tried a lot but still the transfer or

    delivery was not completed due to one reason or the other. The fact is that you

    are stuck between the chains which make it impossible for you to differentiate

    the real office from it's counterfeit. We noticed that the only real offices

    that had ever contacted you in respect to your funds were United State Embassy

    Benin Republic and Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

    It was brought to our notice that the former Ambassador to the republic of

    Benin, Ambassador James Knight, made voluntary effort to bring your funds along

    to your home address but couldn't due to some fall-out on your ends. The

    Federal Reserve Bank of New York came up to make a wire transfer but they said

    you couldn't meet up with the fee demand for the transfer, so they gave up on

    you. In a more proper and legalized manner, the International Monetary Fund and

    the Federal Reserve Bank solicited us Fund Reconciliation Department to allow

    your fund to be written as a Check or Credited as Visa Card and be shipped to

    your home address through the USA Priority Express Mail. These options, we

    supposed could be the best, easiest and the most efficient way to have you get

    hold of your long Awaited United Nations approved funds. Like you were told by

    the Federal Reserve Bank aforementioned, your funds was transferred from about

    four different banks; Central Bank of Nigeria, United Bank for Africa Benin

    Republic, Bank of America and Nat west bank London. In total, your funds were

    amounting to the tune of USD9.8 Million United State Dollars As we speak, your

    funds have been credited in your Visa Card and also available as Cashier's

    Check well documented and packaged. The documented package will be shipped to

    your mailing address by the USA Priority Express Mail here in NY, USA. The ONLY

    thing needed before we can POST your ATM CARD or CHECK is the PROCUREMENT FILE

    of your funds. The procurement file is at the Origin Country of your funds in

    West Africa Cotonou Benin Republic.

    For the purpose to avoiding double payment on your end, we had an agreement

    with the IMF and Federal Reserve to document every charge necessary until the

    package gets to your home address. The analytical group of the two offices

    mentioned above had an accurate sum of USD 325.00 for Procurement. So it was

    constituted and officially submitted to the "Court of Justice" that the ONLY

    charge you will EVER pay before your package leaves our office here in USA to

    your home address is USD 325.00 for your Procurement File to be signed and

    conveyed down here in the USA and YOU WILL NEVER pay a dime again as agreed. We

    are renowned and reputable USA Agency and we don't like an undocumented process

    that is why it had to be written down in Court that you will never pay any

    other money apart from the US$325.00 The USD 325.00 is for "PROCUREMENT FEE"

    (That is for someone to sign your file on your behalf). USA Ambassador to Benin

    Republic, "Ambassador James Knight", who will be coming to the United State in

    few days will have the Power of Attorney to stand in and sign on your behalf

    (since you can't travel down to Benin Rep. because of that) so that he can sign

    and bring along with him your PROCUREMENT FILE to us here to enable us POST

    your loaded ATM CARD or WRITTEN CHECK to your mailing address via Priority

    Express Mail without any hitch.

    Therefore, the days of you being subjected to paying Double Payment, paying

    again and again is over as that is the case with some corrupt officials down

    there in Africa, whom always strife to subject beneficiaries to hard

    bureaucratic bottleneck, thereby making it impossible for most innocent

    citizens spread across the globe and the likes to claim what rightfully belongs

    to them. Be happy now that your funds are here in NEW YORK SURROGATE COURT, USA

    and so we decided to follow the USA constitutions so as to ensure that your

    money is in your hands this week.

    Without mincing words, it will be desirous if you consciously adhere to the

    above instruction by remitting the PROCUREMENT FEE calculated to be US$325.00

    down to the office of Ambassador James Knight at the USA Consulate/Embassy in

    Benin so that your ATM CARD or Check depending on your choice could be shipped

    to your home address as soon as the Ambassador arrives here with your
