The first sentence of this spam should be more than enough to alert you that it is spam: “We sincerely apologize for sending you this sensitive information via e-mail instead of a certified mail.” The actual FBI would never just carelessly send “sensitive information via the internet”! They might think they’re fooling you with their firstname.lastname@example.org address, but it’s spam—so delete it.
