Fake FBI emails: (Egyptian Inheritance Scam)

Internet scammers never cease to amaze me.  Here's an email I got yesterday:



We believe that this notification meets you in a very good present state of mind and health. We the federal bureau of investigation (FBI) in conjunction with some other relevant investigation agencies here in the United States of America have recently been informed through our global intelligence monitoring network that you presently have a transaction going on with the National Bank of Egypt (NBE) as regards to your over-due inheritance payment which was fully endorsed in your favour accordingly. . . .
The email warns me only to only make contact with the included emails/numbers, lest my million dollar inheritance be delayed. 

Who would have thought my Egyptian inheritance was an issue of national security?  Who would have thought the FBI would use a live.com email address instead of an official .gov address?  Too funny.

This is a remix of the old Nigerian scam.
