"These e-mails are a hoax in an attempt to extort funds and are to be ignored," Gordon said.

The FBI also recently released information verifying the hoax, according to Gordon.

"Currently most of these e-mails are being produced at an international level, mostly from the eastern European block, along with the United Kingdom.

"Ignore these e-mails and delete immediate," Gordon said. "They are not valid and should be considered a nuisance only."
