Probably, but I guess there are some who do fall for it, I wouldn't call those people retarded, but it's they way they make them believe that you're the lucky one to receive (in a stupid process) - millions of dollars etc, Also it's the 'millions of dollars' part them make people believe that they're lucky and the only ones to recieve this 'lucky' letter from someone you don't even know! And so, get conned.

Anyone that falls for that almost deserves to loose their money.

I thought the FBI had better things to do like cover up Alien sightings?

Just write back that it is a BAD idea to try to hook a REAL FBI-agent with a fake FBI-mail. The look on the spammers face should be priceless
And THEN tell him that a little bribe might be in order to keep your mouth shut about this ;D

You no as revenge you could spam that Email address with viarga, porn, and rolex! Yes I have junk mail from people trying to sell me fake watches!! probably so as i can tell how long I've been watching the "free" porn and how long the viagra has left for me to enjoy said free porn :

Plus I doubt the head of operations works for a Nigerian bank. Probs just wanted to say Niger in an "FBI" Email.
