Rob McKenna Never Sent Me Stock Tips

Posted by on Thu, Mar 7, 2013 at 4:34 PM

I just invested my entire savings in a little known company, thanks to a surefire stock tip I just got from the Attorney General's Office. I mean, Attorney General Bob Ferguson recommended it himself—how could this possible go wrong?

Oh... wait...

Today, the Attorney General’s Office learned people are receiving e-mails that appear to be from the AGO Webmaster or other “@atg.wa.gov” e-mail addresses with the following subject lines:

• New Pick Coming! But First I need your help, details inside
• Pick Of The Week
• This Stock is another monster week ahead
• DON’T MISS TODAY’S TRADING IDEA
• Your Mind Blowing Monster Pick!
• News Out & Must Read Inside.

Let us assure you. These are spoofs. Scammers know how to make a message appear to be from one e-mail when it’s really from someone completely different.

There goes my retirement.

Coincidentally, I've been trading emails with a Nigerian prince named Bob Ferguson. Somehow I lucked out and am about to come into a fuck-ton of money! Tomorrow I'm going to tell my job to stuff it.
