I received this e-mail but I am unsure if it is a scam or not. It is really not asking for any information, just stating that I will receive an ATM card in the mail.

100% scam. This particular scam letter has been going around for quite some time.

The FBI investigates crimes. They don't play middle-man in personal financial transactions, and they don't contact people via email for official business. Even if the money existed (it doesn't), the FBI would not get involved.

This is standard advance fee fraud. If you contacted the (fake) delivery company to claim your (nonexistent) card, you would be told that you have to pay fees to claim it. In the end, the only money changing hands is yours--to the scammer.
