Anatomy of a Scam
Here are the pieces of the email that I thought were getting better. They reference some specific units in the FBI. They also put the J. Edgar Hoover postal address in the email. And get this.

Once again, wrong domain. Gmail put all kinds of warnings around this email stating that it is most likely a ploy to steal my money.
Nice try guys. You are indeed stepping up your scamming skills. But you have not hit the home run yet. When will they ever learn?
