I received two emails this afternoon. One allegedly from the FBI and one allegedly from the CIA, stating that my IP address had been logged as visiting 30 illegal websites.

The letter stated that there was an attached list of questions that I should fill out immediately. It listed the name of the CIA contact and FBI contact and their address and phone number in D.C.

Has anyone heard of this before? I assume the attachment, which I DID NOT open, had a virus in it.

Thanks,
carloponti

It's a hoax, it was on the radio today.

If it was serious, the fedarali would be at your door.

THIS (http://news.com.com/Virus+arrives+in+e-mail+allegedly+sent+by+FBI/2100-7349_3-5587012.html) could be the culprit. Seems people have been getting it the majority of the year.

This must be virus day or something. Our company was showered with a number of virus laden emails today. May have been just us.
