It's a "phishing" tactic to spread a "trojan horse virus". Who ever must have had it set up in advance and just customized it to deploy it quickly. Poop-heads I like to call these people who do this.

It will trick you into downloading a malicious program that will infect your computer. If you get an email that is suspicious, just delete it if your antivirus program didn't already catch it for you.

I don't really know too much about any political subject (in other words, let's try to keep this down so that it will not develop into a political battle). I do hope it works out for the best, though.
