Send Me Money Or A Hit Man Will Kill You

It looks like the scammers are becoming desperate. All of the magazine articles, tv reports, websites, forums, etc. are getting people informed about all of the email scams being circulated by the millions, and we are becoming aware of their sick games. So, they have resorted to death threats. The newest email con states that there is a hit man out to kill you, but a deal can be worked out if you wire money immediately. Don't be scared. Do not even blink an eye over this type of stupidity. And if you have received an email like this, why are you opening it? I can spot a scam email without even opening it, simply by sender and subject line, and so should you. Matter of fact, I would tell the emailer to shove it. Here is an example of the types of emails I am referring to:


Subject: Merry xmas and read carefully

Good Afternoon,

I Want you to read this message very carefully, and keep the secret with you till further notice, You have no need of knowing who i am, where am from,till i make out a space for us to see, i have being paid $50, 000.00 in advance to terminate you with some reasons listed to me by my employer,its one i believe you call a friend,i have followed you closely for one week and three days now and have seen that you are innocent of the accusation,Do not contact the police or try to send a copy of this to them, because if you do i will know, and might be pushed to do what i have being paid to do,beside this is the first time i turned out to be a betrayer in my job.

Now listen,i will arrange for us to see face to face but before that i need the amount of $80,000.00, you have nothing to be afraid of.I will be coming to see you in your office or home determine where you wish we meet,do not set any camera to cover us or set up any tape to record our conversation,my employer is in my control now,You will need to pay $20, 000.00 to the account i will provide for you,before we will set our first meeting,after you have make the first advance payment to the account,i will give you the tape that contains his request for me to terminate you, which will be enough evidence for you to take him to court(if you wish to), then the balance will be paid later.

You don't need my phone contact for now till am assured you are ready to comply good.

Lucky You.
