This is one of the only SCAM letters I’ve seen that actually shows some skill and creativity. Take a look at the images of the outside of the envelope and the first page of the letter. Then note the inside of the envelope. Pretty realistic until you look inside!

Faked ink bleeding through envelope

At first glance, it appears that Joseph has marked on the envelope with a new marking pen to let us know this is a really important letter. And, in his haste, the ink bled through the envelope and got on the front page of the letter. Certainly sloppy, but I’m sure he had already sealed the envelope and probably didn’t realize his error. Right!!!

In the image below, I have folded the corner of the envelope back so you can see the inside of it.

Strangely, the ink from the marker pen somehow got to the letter without leaving any trace on the inside of the supposedly ink-saturated envelope! How did it do that?! Just more of Joseph’s “magical powers?”

Nah! Just someone with some creative graphics abilities!
