    It sounds fake. First of all, why would the FBI start out a message about child pornography with "Dear"? Second of all your little map thing says you're located in Portugal, what can the US FBI possibly do to you? You're not a US citizen.

    @Ace Gunman.
    Yeah, why would the FBI stat with "Dear"? Hmm..
    About the Portugal thing, they did mention it violates the European Union, then again, what can the FBI do to me? Alert Europe?

    They want you to reply to that cispa@fbi.com email address and say it's a mistake. Then they'll reply with, well, just give us all your personal information and we'll take care of it.

    EDIT: BTW, CISPA isn't a real division of the FBI.

    Have you ever used emule, limewire, kazaa, or any other similiar program to download ANYTHING? Because guess what, you probably have some CP.


    But it is FBI.gov, not FBI.com.
    Do not contact the real FBI and say you've recieved this, because they will laugh at you.

    Already did friend.

    Funny though, it sparkles interest.. Unless they've got keyloggers on text or something now.

    Even took the liberty of taking a picture.

    Well, I use uTorrent, but I don't download porn or anything with uTorrent, just "dodgy" video games and soundtracks.

    It might be a friend pulling a prank on you. It is after all, almost April 1st.

    Actually, the origin of the email address is somehow manipulated. It could be your email company's April 1st joke.

    If they really thought you were sharing that filth they'd knock on your front door, search your house and take your computer..all without prior warning. [​IMG]

    It's a joke ... the language they use is all wrong, for a start ... the US Government has a particular way of using words ... trust me, I was in the USAF for 6 years, I know how the government puts sentences together.

    Plus, if you were under their jurisdiction, they'd pull you in, not send you an email.

    Agreed, even the Canadian Government works in a similar way. They won't just say: "You wen to Child porn you pedo!" or things along this line.

    I also got the message but when I googled the sender cispa@fbi.com I came onto a finnish website with the topic "HUIJJAA KAVERIASI" which means "pull a prank on your friend".
    On the site I found the exact same message and a button which said "send to your friend". All u had to do was to write your friends name and then it would be sent.
    When I checked the site today, there's first of all a new page with terms of use that has to be accepted, and when u click on accept, up comes a notice from the Finnish authorities which displays the following text:

    "Selaimesi on pyrkinyt sivustolle, jolle pääsy on estetty lapsipornografian levittämisen estotoimista annetun
    lain (1.12.2006/1068) perusteella. Poliisi ylläpitää ja päivittää luetteloa näistä lapsipornosivustoista. Sivustoilla
    olevien kuvien hallussapito ja levittäminen on säädetty rangaistavaksi. Poliisille kuvat ovat todisteita lapsiin kohdistuneista seksuaalirikoksista.
    Asiaan liittyvät mahdolliset viestisi voit lähettää keskusrikospoliisiin, sähköpostiosoitteeseen krp-nettiesto@krp.poliisi.fi"

    In English:
    "Your browser has tried to reach a site, to which access has been blocked due to the law (1.12.2006/1068) on distribution of child pornography.
    The police maintains and refreshes the list of these child porn sies.
    Posession and distribution of pictures from the site is punishable. To the police the pictures are proof of sexual crimes on children.
    Any possible questions can be sent to the central crime police on krp-nettiesto@krp.poliisi.fi"

    There ware no actual graphics on the site but I guess the police has decided to shut it down to avoid unnecessary confusion.
    Hope this helped somebody [​IMG]
