I am special agent M.A Willington of the Special Data Unit, a seperate branch of the FBI, we have investigated and retrieved some amount of funds belonging to you. Further information and details will be provided upon your next correspondence. The Cyber Crime Division of the FBI gathered information from the Internet Crime Complaint Center (ICCC) formerly known as the Internet Fraud Complaint Center (IFCC) of how some people have lost outrageous sums of money to these imposters. As a result of this we hereby advise you to stop communication with any one not referred to you by us. investigationdept654@gmail.com

The so called FBI agent posting above is another of the scammers, posting from an African IP address. No true FBI agent would use a gmail account for official correspondence (they use fbi.gov addresses).
