A few minutes ago, I received an untitled email requesting that I pay money or I will die. My curiosity got the best of me and started to read it the first few lines. Here is what I got:
Hello, I am very sorry for you , is a pity that this is how your life is going to end as soon as you don't comply. As you can see there is no need of introducing myself to you because I don't have any business with you, my duty as I am mailing you now is just to KILL you and I have to do it as I have already been paid for that. Someone you call a friend wants you Dead by all means, and this person have spent a lot of money in this venture,This person came to us and told me that he wanted you dead and he provided us with your name ,picture and other necessary information's we needed about you. So I sent my boys totrack you down and they have carried out the necessary investigation needed for the operation on you, and they have done that but I told them not to kill you that I will like to contact you and see if your life is important to you.I called my client back and ask him of your email address which I didn't tell him what I wanted to do with it and he gave it to me and I am using it to contact you now. As I am writing to you this mail my men are monitoring you and they are telling me everything about you. Now do you want to LIVE OR DIE? Since all program ahs be made and draw to kill you. Get back to me now if you are ready to pay some fees to spare your life, $12,000 is all you need to spend in this process you will first of all pay $8,000 then i will send a tape to you which i recorded every discusion i had with the person who wanted you dead and as soon as you get the tape, you will pay the remaining balance of $4,000. If you are not ready for my help, then I will carry on with my job straight-up. WARNING: DO NOT THINK OF CONTACTING THE POLICE OR EVEN TELLING ANYONE BECAUSE I WILL KNOW,REMEMBER, SOMEONE WHO KNOWS YOU VERY WELL WANT YOU DEAD! I WILL EXTEND IT TO YOUR FAMILY, INCASE I NOTICE SOMETHING FUNNY ABOUT YOUR TELLING THE SECURITY ABOUT IT BECAUSE A GOOD LOOK IS OUT YOU AT MOMENT. DO NOT COME OUT ONCE IT IS 7:PM UNTIL I MAKE OUT TIME TO SEE YOU AND GIVE YOU THE TAPE OF ALL DISCUSSION WITH THE PERSON WHO WANT YOU DEAD THEN YOU CAN USE IT TO TAKE ANY LEGAL ACTION. GOOD LUCK AS I AWAIT YOUR REPLY. Hope to hear from you in good faith. Sincerely. Mrs Mary ParkerMaybe a friend did not like that I promoted Blu-Ray or did not like my opinion on another subject? Hmm! I guest I should watch my back and my friends more closely. At least, it was not a 10 millions from a dead prime minister or a lotto scam. ;)In Quebec, we have "Le Bonhomme sept heures". It our version of a bogeyman that prey on children that don't go to sleep after 7PM. Maybe that's why she used that hour? It's apparently new and some police departments received complaints. I decided to enter the whole email so that people who think to search will find it. So, you are not alone or are you sure you are not alone now? Like anything of this nature, I always take a few words and search for that phrase. Here is a tip for you: don't take numbers because they may have change. For example, I used this on Google: "Now do you want to LIVE OR DIE" If I would had found too many possibilities, I would had use hoax or scam like this: "Now do you want to LIVE OR DIE" scam This trick is good when you get a Virus alert from a friend. I use the same method but I had hoax on the first try instead. Btw, who still uses a tape? I thought that was dead like my 5 1/4 floppy! :D Note: I created a new Scam category.
