This just in from the FBI:
The FBI Salt Lake City and FBI El Paso Divisions are issuing an alert this afternoon about an e-mail scam that is affecting Montana residents. The FBI office in Billings, Montana, has received complaints about a phony email. We are aware of one individual who may have sent money, not realizing this is a scam.
Recipients are led to believe the email was sent by the FBI El Paso Division. It states Special Agents have confiscated a box at a Texas airport containing a large sum of money that was en route to the email recipient’s personal residence. The email demands a response and threatens the recipient with possible arrest.
The FBI would like to warn Montana residents not to respond to this email. Anyone who may have questions should contact their local FBI office. Residents are encouraged to report this, or other e-mail scams, to IC3.gov (http://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx).
