CPSIA - Somebody is Spamming the CPSC Under My Name

I have had several reports from the CPSC that they are receiving the following email stripped of an attachment. The email is purportedly from me. It is, however, spam and the stripped file is probably being detached (properly) by the agency's spam filter. The letter is ungrammitical and doesn't make much sense, which I would hope would be a tip-off, but I can appreciate why people think this is from me.

The experience of the CPSIA has reached new surreal heights with this incident. Sorry to all the CPSC'rs who are being bombarded by this email. It's not me, REALLY!

The Spam Email:


We discussed the issues presented by the CPSIA 2008. But now, CPSIA is bringing a new problem. All details attached and please consider my views.

Wouldn't be funny if they (CPSC) actually read the SPAM letter and actually responded?
