Hit-man threat – a new e-mail scam

From the FBI: A new scam cropping up in e-mail boxes across the country is preying not on recipients’ greed or good intentions, but on their fears. The scam e-mail, which first appeared in December, threatens to kill recipients if they do not pay thousands of dollars to the sender, who purports to be a hired assassin. Click here to read the FBI’s news release.

Your best defense is simply to delete unsolicited spam e-mails without opening them. If you receive e-mail threats, you can also report them to the Internet Crime Complaint Center or to the local field office of the FBI.
