Prepared by the Internet Crime Complaint Center ATTENTION – NIGERIAN 419 SCHEME TAKING ADVANTAGE OF RECENT LONDON BOMBINGS!!!
The FBI has become aware of spam e-mail fraudulently claiming to be from MR. JAMES TATUM, DIRECTOR/CEO OF CUMBERLAND VALLEY NATIONAL BANK IN LONDON, ENGLAND. The e-mail is a version of the Nigerian 419 scheme in which mass e-mail is sent containing the information a specified person has died in a high profile tragedy, in this case the London Bombings. The e-mail continues with directions on how the recipient can claim money the person left behind at the specified Bank, Cumberland Valley National Bank in this scenario.
THIS E-MAIL IS A HOAX. DO NOT RESPOND.
