Attn: Financial Department

By this message we would like to inform you about the latest amendments in the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation coverage rules. During the period from December 31, 2010 to December 31, 2012 all funds in a "noninterest-bearing transaction account" are provided with a full insurance coverage by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. Please note, that this arrangement is temporary and separate from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation's basic insurance rules.

The term "noninterest-bearing transaction account" implies a usual checking account or demand deposit account on which the insured depository institution pays no interest. For more information about this temporary FDIC unlimited coverage, please refer to: http://iimtstudies.com/e3f4e0/index.html

Yours faithfully,
Greta Bullock
Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation

The link goes via a couple of hacked sites to a malicious payload splatstack.net/main.php?page=abfd0d069b45c17e hosted on (Linode). Blocking access to that IP address will probably be prudent.
