Ooh, a Message From the FBI
From: FBI
Subject: You visit illegal websites

Sir/Madam, we have logged your IP-address on more than 40 illegal Websites. Important: Please answer our questions! The list of questions are attached.

Yet another in the long-running series of (commonly, like this one, grammatically incorrect) messages trying to trick recipients into loading a malware-infested attachment.

Believe me, if the FBI were truly tracking you, they'd know your full name (and a whole lot more). I also think they prefer to make, um, in-person visits to confiscate computers.
