A recent incoming spam email from a “Mr X” (email@example.com):
I advise you to take this message serious, if you value your life, I am
a hit man, i was hired to terminate your life by someone very close to
i have been following you for a while now and from my findings you dont
deserve to die.
i know a whole lot about you where you work, where you live, your loved
ones and lots more.
i was paid to terminate your life i almost did until i found out
something about you.
so am going to let you live
this are my conditions
you will pay me $2000 within $48 hours not a second more if you fail, i
will carry out my orders but if you succeed i will give you an audio
recording of my conversation with the person that hired me so you can
take legal actions if i dont do the job another hit man will but if you
know who ordered the hit you stand a fighting chance.
you are to pay me using bitcoin with this bitcoin address below
if you dont know how to send money through bitcoin you can google it
When i receive funds I’ll send you the name of the person the order came
from, as well as all the evidence i have. You will be able to use them
with the police. Do not contact the police or share this message with
anyone if you do you are dead,
Answering to this letter does not make sense, i use one-time mailbox,
cause i really do care about my anonymity. I’ll contact you as soon as
i’ll get the funds.
Does anyone still fall for shit like this?
