Agent Robert Mueller
FBI Special Agent in Charge
This scam was sent six times for good measure. I'm pretty sure that impersonating an FBI agent is a federal offense. For some reason, the scammer goofed and filled in "female" for sex. Also, Robert Mueller is the current director of the FBI; his name was used to add the thinnest veneer of legitimacy, but it makes this already unbelievable scam even more unbelievable for those who know who he is.
