Hoax: Mr William C Dudley Of Federal Reserve Bank – HOAX ALERT
Mr William C Dudley Of Federal Reserve Bank
Found the “Mr William C Dudley Of Federal Reserve Bank” hoax in my inbox this morning.
This is an obvious scam,
1. The GMAIL address is a dead giveaway. The Federal Reserve has a Government email address also know as a REAL email address.
2. The email is difficult to understand.
3. The government would Never email you about something like this.
4. They give an account # in the email
However, this one is rather cleaver because people Googling “Mr. William C. Dudley Of Federal Reserve Bank” will find articles about Mr William C Dudley President and Chief Executive Officer of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
This email IS A HOAX. But for people who have been told “Just Google it to see if it’s true”, they will Google this and it will look like it’s on the level. It’s not – again this is a HOAX. If you email this person your account information they will withdraw all the money out of any account you send them. So DON’T DO IT. Delete the email!
And PLEASE SHARE THIS POST and Tag any Elderly person who may have access to the internet. Also TAG anyone who constantly shares hoaxes believing they are true.
The email reads like this:
