Today I received a strange email, which looks like a scam to me. It claims to be sent from blockchain.info
email@example.com, but being a programmer, I know that I can send email from whomever I want, so I do not trust it so much.

I formatted it a little bit, but basically this is it. Also this does not look like a ponzi scheme to me, it looks like a scam. Moreover I haven't found any information about
blockchain investments on their site (but I admit I have not looked too much).
My question is: is this a real thing?
