UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE?
This just arrived in my Inbox (including the question mark; the FBI doesn't seem very sure of itself, perhaps because it thinks it's the DOJ?) with a return address of "firstname.lastname@example.org" ...so it must be legit, right? I wonder why our FBI is sending their mail through the domain "ertelecom.ru" -- that must be a Glasnost thing.
