The email message below that appears as if it came from the "Federal Department" with the subject: "Final Notice" is a scam. The fake email, which claims that legal proceedings and debt collection procedures will be taken against the recipients for a specified amount of money, is being sent by scammers to trick the recipients into sending them money by threatening legal actions against them. Therefore, recipients of the fake email message should delete it and not follow the instructions in it.
It is important that the public take precautions when asked to send money via money transfer services like Western Union and MoneyGram, or Prepaid Debit Card to pay legal services or the government. This is because scammers use those untraceable money transfer services to collect money from their victims. Money sent via those services are not refundable, once the scammers have collected or used it.
