  1. I know this is real because I received a couple of these messages. They look real because they borrow the logo of the federal agency and sound stern but only an idiot would give up usernames and passwords so you can easily reason that it's a scam. If you have "friends" who include you on open CC list on forwarded e-mails, get off those "friend's" lists. This how the spammers get collections of addresses. Responding to spam, only confirms your address as active.
