    Caution: FBI E-mails Are Fakes
    The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is warning citizens that e-mails purporting to be from the FBI are fakes. The e-mails state that the FBI's "Internet Fraud Complaint Center" has discovered that the recipient is visiting illegal web sites and instructs the recipient to open an attachment to the e-mail. The attachment is a virus. AOL is scanning attachments to your AOL e-mail for known viruses, but you should still be careful with non-AOL mail

    Best method is not to open suspicious e-mails.
