FBI Director Robert S. Mueller, III Not Spared from Email Scams

This is major criminal offense, impersonating a government official- an FBI Director at that. Interestingly, the scammer isn't giving any other details on how to contact him other than the email address: jege001@sbcglobal.net. What's more incredulous about this email is the scammer is warning against fraudulent people while the email in itself is fraudulent... Beware!

    When I get to work in the morning me and my coworkers compete with each other to see who has won the most money from these fake emails. So you think the director is going to set some of his guys on the case?
