FedEx now uses Hotmail!

Does this have "scam" written all over it, or what? If someone from the New York Institute of Technology contacts you claiming to be shipping a package containing a $900,000 bank draft to you… it's a scam. Note that country code +234 is Nigeria. (The message seems to have originated from the NYIT mail servers, which implies that someone's email address was hacked.)

Don't be fooled, don't reply, to messages like this.
