    I find it incomprehensible that anybody would fall for this.. and I also worry that the person sending them thinks they are even remotely genuine looking..

    Lol, as if the FBI would use a Hotmail email account. The sad thing is though that people do fall for this kind of scam.

    I love a carefully concocted scam email. More of this I say!

    Quite frankly i'm fed up with 'buy cheap viagra', 'join f*ckbook' emails and 'buy high quality r0lex replica'

    I suppose it has be packed securely, what with $10.7 billion loaded on it. Mind you, it strikes me as an odd way of transferring money half way across the world. I hope they remembered to note down the PIN.

    I'm having lots of problems with my bank accounts lately for some reason. Even those with banks I've never used...

    so $10,700,000 is roughly 6,903,226

    You can take a maximum of 200 per day from an ATM

    That would take you 34516 days to withdraw

    Or 4931 weeks

    Or 95 years

    Not factoring interest!
