Heh, I don't visit any so-called "illegal" websites, I don't do warez, and this isn't the CIA's bailiwick either.
This would be more likely the FBI's territory. But I can see how a person who hasn't basically screwed around with computers for 18 years would get freaked out by such a letter and click the attachment. Of course, if you do that in Windows you're so screwed, but heh, I'm on Linux so even if I wanted to "dissect" the attachment I'd probably be safe.
Oh well, back to the salt mines...
