The FBI is warning of an email that claims to be from the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network.
The email says the agency has found their lost funds, which were stolen and diverted to a foreign account. The email tells the recipient to cease all money transactions especially overseas, and to respond to the e-mail so the lost funds could be returned.
The email asks for personal banking information.
The e-mail is signed by James H. Freis, Deputy Director of the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network.
The U.S. Department of the Treasury says they do not send unsolicited requests and do not seek personal or financial information from members of the public by e-mail. You're urged not to respond to the email or anything similar you receive in the future.
