Hitman Death Threat Email Scam - No Nigerian phishing hoax, this Russian 'born killer' sends murder spam that says pay $20,000 in 5 days or be killed

I love my local newspaper, the Akron Beacon Journal, wherein I learned the latest email phishing scam is one called the "Hitman Scam" from a self-titled "born killer."

More like born spammer.

Believed to have originated in Russia, this "born killer" hitman email spammer-phisher writes, "It is important we come to a conclusion now or never because, I have been hired to kill you."

The hitman email scammer goes on to say that if you pay him $20,000 in five days, you'll live.

The hitman desperado has added a new twist to the threatening emails, saying someone has already been arrested for murder -- and has even found the names of some recipients' children -- probably gained once people respond or via their online presence.

So, if you get one of these hitman scam emails from a born killer, file a complaint with the FBI.

It never ceases to amaze me the evil ways some technically-inclined folks try to make money. If you've got the techie skills to spam people galore, why not use those gifts for good instead of evil?

Dear "Hitman Born Killer Friend" - Peruse my archives, find legit ways of making money online that will allow you to sleep at night, not force you to look over your shoulder every second, or give you flash-forwards of being locked up in prison with real born killers.

    huh Killer use email as a scam. LOL
    If a killer really does so high tech to email you regarding this, I definitely won't bother about it.
    I just treat that email just a spam!
