Email Scam Alert - 01/01/2011

The Methuen Police Department issues an ALERT about scam emails looking to defraud you of your money.  A recent email that is circulating attempts to make you believe that the email is from the FBI. The scammers set their display name and their email response name to appear to be from the FBI. The email display name appears as FBI OFFICE, however on further investigation it is a Hotmail, Google or other email name with a masked identity.  The email provides a respond to email something like the following: Email: fbi_offic0123@hotmail.com.
Which is actually a private email address.
A sample of this type of email is posted below. Please do not respond to an email like this and delete it immediately. Whenever in doubt call the Methuen Police Department and ask for an officer to respond and review the email for you. Email scamming is on the rise and we are all susceptible to these type of offers. Any offer that seems to be to good to be true usually is. Error on the side of CAUTION.
