I get quite a bit of spam email, most of which I just delete. But every now and then one catches my eye and I’ll read it for laughs. I know it’s still January but I believe this one is the best one I’m going to get all year.
U.S. Department of Homeland Security <firstname.lastname@example.org>
U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY
Kindly get back to us for further directives.
Note: Do not reply to any e-mail that comes from the FBI Director JAMES COMEY III. The FBI director does not e-mail people; He will rather send an agent to your door step in person. Do not fall a victim of scam again, a word is enough for the wise.
Thank you and have a good day.
Joseph P Clancy
Director, United States Secret Service

Summary: Scam DHS is saving me from Internet fraud while giving me ten million dollars and also warning me not to reply to other scammers impersonating the FBI director because that’s probably a scam. And here you thought there were no more good guys.
