CIA / FBI Hoax: Beware!

If you have received any email from cia.gov or fbi.gov or something similar, DELETE IT IMMEDIATELY AND DO NOT OPEN THE ATTACHMENT.

Please submit a report to the Internet Crime Complaint Centre at http://www.ic3.gov if you have received it!

The hoax goes like this:

---------------------------------------------------
Dear Sir/Madam,

we have logged your IP-address on more than 30 illegal Websites.

Important:
Please answer our questions!
The list of questions are attached.


Yours faithfully,
Steven Allison



++++ Central Intelligence Agency -CIA-
++++ Office of Public Affairs
++++ Washington, D.C. 20505

++++ phone: XXXXXXXX
++++ 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., US Eastern time
--------------------------------------------------

Dammit, I have already received it 3 times! Please not that the FBI/ CIA did not send these e-mails and does not send any other unsolicited e-mails to the public, as said via an agency statement.
