Hi Kim,
Thanks for the post.  I have seen quite a few of these scams going around lately, some of which are quite convincing.   Seems it's that time of the season again where they ramp up their efforts.  I'll make sure this is passed along to the right folks to look into.  As always if you don't trust the content or the sender don't click on any links or open any attachments, better safe than sorry.
