Most scammers who claim to have millions of dollars in dormant bank accounts present themselves as bank officials from third world countries. This scammer, however, claims to work at the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank in Texas. There may well be a real “Richard Fisher” — if so, the scammer has just copied his name to make the scam message look legitimate.

But ask yourself: would a real U.S. bank official be writing in broken English to someone he doesn’t even know? He wouldn’t, but a scammer would.
