I assume this is somebody's idea of a joke, but it's about the least funny thing I've ever seen. Is there somebody I can report this to?


  1. If you're on AOL, forward it to AOL TOS. Beyond that, I'd call the FBI general info, tell them what you were sent, and if you want a copy of it in it's entirity. My parent works for the federal government with intelligence, however I have a feeling that this is someone's idea of a joke. None the less, the FBI would want to know and prosecute (and at least scare the garbage out of) this person(s).

    I looked it up, you can report it online at https://tips.fbi.gov/ And here's all of the contact info--whether you want to report it to the state or a branch of their department; but if you report it at the top and they do care, it will trickle down to the state and local level for prosecution. http://www.fbi.gov/contactus.htm

    Please do report it.

  2. Wow, this is really disturbing.
