We are going to ask you for some infotmation later on in this email. You'll need to reply with all the information needed and it must be accurate and valid. After this we will contact you again with information on this case.

WARNING: If you do not reply within 72 hours, we will send special forces to get the needed info from you.

We need all the information below:

Title. First name. Middle name. Last name. Telephone number. Company (your name if none). Street address. Country. City. State, region or province. Zip/postial code. Name of the bank you use. Telephone of the bank you use. Current balance on bank account. Credit or debit card from bank provided. Name as shown on card. Card number. Expiration month. Expiration year. Security code from back of card.

Copy the needed information list and write your information next to everything. Reply to this email with it.

Know that your information will be safe in the FBI directories.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation

I dunno guys, I mean this SOUNDS legit right? And all my info will be safe in the FBI directories so it should be fine to send them all that info.

EVERYBODY! HE KNOWS ITS FAKE! SARCASM! Sorry for the caps, but there isn't even ONE comment here that seems to understand this. I don't think that it was Tom's intention to be taken serious (in this case, of course).

P.S. I DO understand that some of you are also sarcastic, but I know most of you aren't.

Yeah, it does sound legit.
Speaking of legit emails, i'm still waiting on money from that Nigerian prince :/ He's slow

Bullshit, This is definitely not legit. I agree with Dexious when he said *quote* 'No company should ever ask you for you credit card, bank, or any other information like that. I believe it's a frawd plus they would send you a hard copy, i.e. a letter and with phone numbers to contact them with.' *quote* Plus whoever sent this is committing a Felony by impersonating the FBI.

trace the source IP that is shown on the Email. If it doesnt show the coordinates of the pentagon, its bullshit

This is a fake.
First (assuming you copied and pasted this email) they misspelled "information" as "infotmation." Second, if it was legit, you wouldn't need to send them anything- they would already know. You're fairly well known, so it would be a simple matter to obtain that information.
Third, if it was legit, they would tell you what you're charged with- it's a law. (Reply and ask what the charges are- you have a right to hear the charges against you).
Fourth, why would they give you 72 hours that you could use to pack your bags and run away? Wouldn't they just come for you?
Anytime you get an email that demands your personal information to the letter for a vague-but-serious-sounding reason, it is probably a phishing scheme. Don't fall for it.

Wow some idiot sure did spend a good deal of time crafting that letter in attempt to trick you. At least someone is taking the time to impress you!

2012-10-28 09:36:12

Sorry, but why does anyone even take the time to read it?
Seriously, even I know that the FBI:
- Isn't gonna send you a warning email and by that giving you 72 hours the time to flee
- IF the FBI does that, the email would be at least 3 pages, explaining law to you and telling you why you've been arrested.
- And even if the FBI has gone that crazy, they would've known this stuff the minute you were accused

I seem to recall a few FBI laptops and HD's going missing, and with lots of citizen data on them.
It would sound more legit if this email came from the IRS :P
If the Feds want you, you'll know it by the lack of emotion in their faces and the dearth of compassion. Multiply by 2x if it's someone from the CIA; reduce IQ by 3x if it's someone from the TSA (if you can't swear an oath to the Constitution, you shouldn't be waving guns around in public).

Card number. Expiration month. Expiration year. Security code from back of card.

forgot out expiration day, also it wouldn't be phrased as such, it would be phrased as date of expiration.

Telephone of the bank you use.

no professional would say it like that, its called a telephone number.

WARNING: If you do not reply within 72 hours, we will send special forces to get the needed info from you.

please explain to me how special forces will do this? they can trace this information from their directories in the first place, 2 if they did come I'm sure they'd have kicked in the door and then you could invoke the castle doc-turn law (assuming you have that where you live) witch allows you to use deadly force against them.

2012-10-20 22:24:10

Zip/postial code. Name of the bank you use.
^ Postal*

note the postal is spelled wrong. the FBI does not make grammar mistakes! argument is invalid. i deem this a pure con.

Tom you must be just trolling us... because no one would say " And all my info will be safe in the FBI directories so it should be fine to send them all that info." and also NOTE: If you do not have a credit or debit card, go to your bank and get one. doesn't sound legit at all

Send them a picture of your penis and politely state that you think that will be more than enough for proper identification. Let them know that you are eagerly anticipating the results of the federal investigation and should not hesitate to ask you any questions.

After all, this is a serious matter. One that requires serious cooperation.

Totally legit. oh yeah. lmao...i didn't even know that those emails still existed.

If the govt wanted your bank account information, they would have had it before you were born.

and what the fuck guys WARNING: If you do not reply within 72 hours, we will send special forces to get the needed info from you. that doesnt sound legit at all and if they were serious, would they have the manpower to take on the newgrounds community ? heck we have pico, alien hominid, p-bot, nene, tankmen, dad n me and every awesome characters from our imagination :D but kidding aside the FBI wouldnt be stupid enough to locate each and every newgrounder on earth esp when we did nothing wrong

bottom line is ......... tom's trolling us

Wow, an official letter from the FBI, it's either fake. or the FBI have a BIG hate on for you because you stole their idea for an awesome place called newgrounds, that has video games, pornographic art, videos, Hentai, and OVER NINE THOUSAAAAAAAND other things that all contribute to the awesomeness of this gaming/everything site. Tom, you're awesome, keep the site going and if the FBI do shut it down, all of America is going to rage out on their arses because thats how we show our love :) BTW the UK would to, so would Russia, I mean, they just can't stop fapping when they're drunk, and Australia would to, because they're awesome and this site is awesome (its a natural combination!). Jeez, its like I just wrote a long flippin note to some poor old kid who has to deal with the FBI and they're wack-arse conserns over nothing but the fact that this site turns people into awesome-zombs. keep it up, and I have 1,459 characters left!
