You know, if you’re trying to commit fraud and if you’re going to do it over the internet and if English isn’t your primary language maybe- hear me out, okay- maybe you should get a buddy who is a native speaker and has a passing familiarity with the culture to proofread your spam. I know, that’s crazy talk. See below:

You are suspected of plunder 2100 $ from
account Webmoney! It is necessary for you
to contact employee FBI USA who has
affairs with representation Webmoney in USA.
We have the decision of a problem and
further the decision of a problem in regional
court. The complaint has acted from ID
828245830532. The full information on
http://www.fbi-policy.com/webmoney.htm.

Impressive. no? Tucows has already pulled the registration info and the webhost has pulled the page so no one will get to enjoy the rest of this rather convincing professionally-executed scam.
