Some thoughts:

The usual crap, misspelled words, poor grammar, etc... but I'm particularly fond of the FBI cyber crime department twist. It appears [you, the recipient] have been in contact with some nefarious people so we'll help you get some money; all you have to do is send us $260 after contacting our guy (who has a .cn email address) who will then send you a few million.

It's almost a subliminal ad for Visa considering how much detail they give about the usage of said ATM card.

Apparently the US Government is a "he":

Read that sentence, slowly, and see if your head doesn't explode.


Why does it cost $260 to ship a single ATM card? They must be using UPS.

First thought: Pay money to receive money => scam.
It's still occasionally fun to take such messages apart to locate the often multiple places they fail.

Why can't you just pay the fee or whatever they call it from the amount you are supposed to get?
