Mrs. Bernie Madoff

Well guess who I got an email from today . . . Mrs. Bernie Madoff! Okay, it was from a scammer pretending to be Mrs. Bernie Madoff. Does anyone else see the irony in the fact that someone who runs a scam fighting website got an email from a scammer pretending to be someone that operated the largest and most talked about Ponzi Scheme to date?

The Securities and Exchange Commission is working with federal prosecutors in Manhattan to prepare a filing asking a judge to formally freeze all of my assets as soon as possible.

My husband deposited the sum of (USD$25.000.000.00 Million) in a Finance Firm in Europe some years ago in my name, I need you to collect this funds and distribute it to both of us since the Federal investigators are working around the clock to freeze all my assets. Meanwhile all documents related to transfer of this fund to your account is with the bank

Presently, I’m in a hard out here in UK as the Federal investigators as well the Securities and Exchange Commission is looking for me to freeze my entire asset as well prosecute me like my husband.

Please reply back to me on this e-mail as I will like if you contact my bank directly so that he will direct you on the way forward. Please due send to me all your contact details as I will like to speak with you before we commence on the transaction. Please Keep this transaction secret and confidentail for now.
