New spin on "Nigerian" scam

Just got an e-mail from someone posing as an FBI agent, stating that my settlement of $5.9 million is waiting for me, just as soon as they get their $255 processing fee.

To blatant things about this:

1)The sender's e-mail is listed as "spam(at)uce.gov". (I checked and while "uce.gov" is owned by the Federal Trade Commission, there is no website at that domain.)
2)The e-mail I am supposed to send my financial information to is "unitedstatesdeptofjustice1(at)gmail.com".

I swear, they're not even trying anymore...

I just tell them to paypal it to me via the same email address. Then they say there is no paypal in their part of Africa.
