The scam: A rash of death-threat emails has victims in Grand Forks, ND, trembling in their shoes. The messages warn of a $650,000 contract killing — and you’re the target. Unless you pay the hitman $15,000. They say you’re being watched (so you can’t contact the police) and give you 24 hours to make contact.
The solution: Let’s be serious. Are you really worth $650,000 dead? And if you are, why would the hitman take $15,0000 instead of collecting his fee? Tell the police.
