Do you really think what everyone here has to say is so important, or are you just paranoid?

Just curious, because that paranoia apparently had something to do with your actually entertaining the notion that that email was from the FBI, who was for some reason concerned about your bank account information.

One of the biggest indicators of this email being fraudulent, or at least what jumped out at me -- British spelling. I seriously doubt the FBI would do that


You did the right think Marge.... asked questions; I bet the FBI itself would be really interested in such an email, although I doubt they could do much about it, and truthfully, had I received this one, I'd have done what I did with similar emails. Delete.

Cheers
