Default I'm RICH!

Got this in email today. This is just laughable . It had John Kerry listed in the title:
U.S. Department of the Treasury
1500 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, D.C.
Website: http://www.treasury.gov
Email: jacklew.treasury.gov.us@gmail.com
Dear Beneficiary,
I am Jacob Jack Lew. The New Secretary of the Treasury under the U.S Department of the Treasury. The executive agency responsible for promoting economic prosperity and ensuring the financial security of the United States. However, by virtue of my position as the new Secretary of the Treasury, I have irrevocably instructed the Federal Reserve Board to approve your fund release via issuance of a CERTIFIED CHECK drawn on FEDERAL RESERVE BANK, which is the authourized bank for your fund release.
However, as a former White House Chief of Staff. Prior to that role, Lew was the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), I wish to state categorically that a CERTIFIED CHECK of $6,500,000.00 USD drawn on Federal Reserve Bank will be issued and sent to you via the US Postal Service at no cost to you. Every and all cost associated with the delivery of the CHECK has been pre-paid by the U.S Government. The only cost associated with your fund release is the cost of processing a "Fund Clearance Certificate", which is estimated to the value of $150.00 USD. The "Fund Clearance Certificate" is required in accordance with the U.S Monetary Policy; and it is the ONLY expenses you will incurr before the CHECK will be sent to your mailing address. Hence, you are advised to send the $150.00 USD via Western Union or MoneyGram ONLY to "MR. TONY FONG" who is the nominated receiver for the $150.00 USD. The wiring de tails is stated below:
Receiver: TONY FONG
Receiver's Location: California USA
Test Question: Color
Answer: Blue
Amount: $150.00 USD
You can get more facts about the U.S. Department of the Treasury on this link http://www.treasury.gov/about/Pages/Secretary.aspx
Please get back to me with a quick confirmation of your mailing addresss and the payment slip for the $150.00 USD.
Yours Sincerely,
Jack J. Lew
Secretary of the Treasury

Looks legit to me. $150 to make $6.5M? Why would you question that this wasn't legit? Of course the Secretary of the Treasury would have a Gmail account right?

Nice one

Default Re: I'm RICH!

The signature line (Jack J. Lew) doesn't match the intro line (Jacob Jack Lew). Other than that, seems ligit to me.

Good to see the US Gov is cutting back on systems to save money and just having government employees sign up for gmail accounts.
