I discovered this marvelous spam email in my box today:

Get back to me

My name is Joseph J. Simons, the Chairman, Federal Trade Commission.

As the economic and catastrophic impact of the Corona Virus pandemic continues to hit hard on individuals and businesses, the Federal Trade Commission has been contracted by the US Treasury and Federal Reserve Board to expedite the release of all outstanding compensation/inheritance/relief funds owed to individuals and small businesses and be sure that all funds are paid to befitting beneficiaries within the shortest possible time.

Due to this development, we have been assigned to step into the immediate processing of all outstanding payments to enable all beneficiaries receive their funds as soon as possible. Fortunately, you have been selected alongside a few other beneficiaries to receive a payment of $950,000 (Nine Hundred and Fifty Thousand United States Dollars only) through the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

To implement this, you are to get back to me immediately with the below details;

(1) Full Names:
(2) Residential Address:
(3) Date of Birth:
(4) Phone/Cell Number:
(5) Occupation:

In conclusion, it's my concern to demand your ultimate honesty and cooperation to enable us expedite this transaction. I guarantee that this process would be executed under a legitimate arrangement that would legally protect you from any breach of Law.

Get back to me at your earliest convenience.


I honestly can't tell you how delighted I was to get an email from the "Chairman, Federal Trade Commission" whose email address is given as "wangdan@norintech.com".... I looked up the domain registry for "norintech.com" and they're Beijing-based.
