    Agree with stonie... also, No government, major organization, or even major business, would send info like this out from yahoo, G-Mail, or other 3rd party email addresses. That is another dead giveaway.

    This has all the hallmarks of a typical scam:
    - It does not address you by name. Seems to me the FBI wouldn't fail to use your full name.
    - Refers to some transaction you weren't aware of
    - Chock full of grammar and spelling mistakes
    - Stilted and overly officious language
    - Encouraging you to cooperate with whatever they say they're "investigating"
    - Use of a free e-mail address for contact. A genuine bank would have its own domain.
    - Pressure to act quickly.

    And the most obvious clue:
    IT'S FROM NIGERIA.

    Of course, if you like, you can forward the e-mail to the real FBI. I believe they keep a file on these things.
