You're getting this letter in connection with new directions issued by U.S. Treasury Department. 
The directions concern U.S. Federal Wire and ACH online payments.

On February 17, 2009 a large-scaled phishing attack started and has been still lasting. A great 
number of banks and credit unions is affected by this attack and quantity of illegal bank transfers 
has reached an extremely high level.

U.S. Treasury Department, Federal Reserve, America Bankers Association (ABA) and Federal Deposit 
Insurance Corporation (FDIC) in common worked out a complex of immediate actions for the highest 
possible reduction of fraudulent operations. We regret to inform you that definite restrictions 
will be applied to all Federal Wire and ACH transfers  from February 24 till March 6, 2009.

Here you can get more detailed information regarding the affected banks and U.S. Treasury 
Department restrictions:

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
