Just got an interesting e-mail from the "CIA"
At least , they claim to be the CIA....

"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: (703) 482-0623
++++ 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., US Eastern time"

This is undoubtidly fake. I have no idea what "illegal web sites" I supposedly would have visited (and NO I certainly didn't open the zip that came with it). but the return e-mail is Post@cia.gov and I would have thought the .gov addresses would have been secured from spammers.

1. isn't this also illegal?
had another thought. Isn't it illegal to impersonate a federal official?

Should I report them?
