Recibí este email de persona o personas simulando ser del FBI.Parte de él ha sido suprimido.
Entró como spam y es uno de los engaños clásicos que entran a los correos electrónicos.
El ardid es ingenuo para ingenuos.Recibir un mail firmado por el Director del FBI,que por cierto es Robert Mueller pero III,sugiere un alarde de ignorancia por parte de los que producen este tipo de correos con el fín de conseguir datos personales,por lo menos en primera instancia.
Decidí publicar este,y es el tercero que ingresa como spam,(en el primero se me advertía en mi cuenta sobre su dudosa procedencia),pues estos tipos ya me hartaron.
