DO NOT OPEN the attachment . Do not response to the email. This email is not send by "FEDERAL RESERVE BANK OF NEW YORK." <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
This email is a scam, not a worm or virus. The email do not have any infected attachments.
The offer may sound tempting and looks worth taking a risk for the big reward. DO NOT fall into this scam.
If you reply, you will probably be asked to pay some US$100 to start off the fund transfer process. The excuse for requiring your payment is that the scammer themselves cannot be involved in any payment to avoid being caught linking the transfer. Of course, if you pay up the first time, you will be asked for further payments for other issues.
Once you become suspicious of them and ask many questions about the payment, they will stop responding the email and start looking for other victims.
