Email Scam: Jill Biden

By Leave a comment

As more and more of us are getting hit with email scams, we at the Fraud Prevention Centre decided to start documenting them, beginning with this great email from none other than the First Lady of the United States herself, Jill Biden!

Imagine my surprise upon learning of my inheritance check from…who cares, I’m inheriting 10 million dollars!  US dollars, no less, meaning $13 million CAD!

As scams go, this is pretty typical in format, but different in that it’s from the First Lady.  Regardless, this scam has several of the red flags you must always look out for:

  1. unsolicited
  2. addressed to no specific person
  3. advises you of money that you are getting as long as you provide your personal contact information – and of course if they knew it was you they’d have that already
  4. requirement for you to pay an amount for delivery of the funds
  5. terrible grammar, “We are American patriotism that wants to defend this country against our foreign adversaries”

We’re going to respond to this email and see where it takes us.  We’ll post updates as we go along, and post updates with all of the email scams that we’ve been documenting.

For your enjoyment and protection,

Joe White, President, FPCC
