Look... You've Got KGB Mail
SophosLabs has issued a warning asking users to be wary of a certain email that claims to come from a dying KGB agent, offering to pass-on secrets of erstwhile US President, John F Kennedy's assassination.
Sophos says the spam is an attempt at luring lovers of conspiracy theories into handing-over cash and confidential information to scamsters.
The author of the email reportedly says he is suffering from a terminal disease; and has access to declassified CIA documents, files from the former KGB, as also revealing interviews with key people. The author goes on to say that the information he has to give, could make the recipient famous.
The email says that the information the author has to disclose can be talked about with friends and neighbors, written about in a shocking book, shared on radio talk shows, and so on. The email says that with this coveted information, issues can be raised and answers demanded not in 50 or 100 years, but on a right-here-right-now basis
