I received an email from the CIA with an attachment. I always try to authenticate anything like this and sure enough on the CIA website they have a notice up about the falsehood of the email. DO NOT OPEN THE ATTACHMENT and read what the CIA has to say about it here:

Thank you, Theresa, for telling ua about this! I read in the paper a couple of days ago that people are getting a similar email from someone claiming to be the FBI. People are really out of something to do, aren't they?
