OKLAHOMA CITY -- Scammers are taking advantage of the current financial crisis by trying to cash in with a new e-mail scam.

The poorly-worded e-mail, which has already hit Oklahoma, claims to be from Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson.

The e-mail mentions the economic crisis, and solicits the readers' bank account information.

The FBI has encouraged those who have received the e-mail to delete it, or report it to the Internet Fraud Complain Center.
