Money Launderers Anticipating FBI Involvement

Another crock of crap has seeped through the cracks in the Internet! A lady looking for a work at home position was approached by an offer through email, which is shown below. Please note that we changed the company name prior to posting this. Here again, the crooks are phishing for someone to launder their money, although this one is quite humorous in that they inform the person, "The FBI will surely be interested and get involved." Well, at least this time the money laundering criminals have something right! Sure, why not tip off the ignorant that the FBI will most likely get involved. I think they cancelled their own phishing trip with that statement! What do you think?
