IMF

This spam-scam is fascinating: it looks like an old telex message. Very clever.

But it's still an obvious fraud when you read it.

BIScom Subsection: 

This is so amateur that it's worth our publishing it. The "reply to" address is at a free and anonymous mail account in Hungary: georgievakristalina01@vipmail.hu . But there is something interesting.

FCRO Subsection: 

We love, really love, the most ludicrous spam-scams we can find and this one is an absolute classic of its type.

BIScom Subsection: 

One always has to adopt a basic position of scepticism when someone appears to think they are being clever by using a popular phrase: an example is Dame Nemat Talaat Shafik, who likes to be known as "Minouche,", the Deputy Governor, Markets and Banking, of the Bank of England and a Member of the Bank of England Monetary Policy Committee. Her paper "Think Global, Act Local" is the start of her swansong : she is to leave the BoE in February 2017 to become Director, London School of Economics.
