i was sent this threatening email should i be worried?
this is what my email said is it real?


Hello,

This is the only way I could contact you for now, I want you to be very careful about this and keep this secret with you until I make out space for us to see. You have no need of knowing who I am or where I am from. I know this may sound very surprising to you but it's the situation. I have been paid some ransom in advance to terminate you with some reasons listed to me by my employer. It's someone I believe you call a friend; I have followed you closely for a while now and have seen that you are innocent of the accusations he leveled against you. Do not contact the police or try to send a copy of this to them, because if you do, I will know, and I might be pushed to do what I have been paid to do. Besides, this is the first time I turn out to be a betrayer in my job. I took pity on you, that is why I have made up my mind to help you if you are willing to help yourself.

Now listen, I will arrange for us to see face to face, but before that, I need $5,000. I will come to your home or you determine where you wish we meet; I repeat, do not arrange for the cops and if you play hard to get, it will be extended to your family. Do not set any camera to cover us or set up any tape to record our conversation; my employer is in my control now. Payment details will be provided for you to make a part payment of $3,000 first, which will serve as guarantee that you are ready to co-operate, then I will post a copy of the video tape that contains his request for me to terminate you which will be enough evidence for you to take any legal action against him before he employs another person for the job. You will pay the balance of $2,000 once you receive the tape.

Warning; do not contact the police, make sure you stay indoors once it is 7.30pm every day until this whole thing is sorted out, if you neglect any of these warnings, you will have yourself to blame. You do not have much time, so get back to me immediately

Note: I will advise you keep this to yourself alone, not even a friend or a family member should know about it because it could be one of them and you are given 24 hours to reply to this email or else i will have to carry out the assignment.

Sounds like the Nigerians are trying a new way to scam people out of money.

Re: i was sent this threatening email should i be worried?
This is just what I would do...

I would contact the police (secretly) and play along with this game until the meeting day. It is probably a hoax and someone desperate for money but I wouldn't take any chances if I were you.

Let the police stakeout your meeting with this person and they will take it from there. If you have no reason to believe someone would have it out for you, then this is probably just a desperate attempt at getting money from you. Take the upper-hand.

It looks like the genius copied his e-mail, from the "warning about Hitman Scam" site directly.

Respond by sending him the link.

And, tell him your employer, just out did his employer, so he should pay you before you bust his ass.

Scam.

They notified my best friend before. They sent him an email and called his house.

He was scared shitless. But the thing was. They never came. lolol and found out its a scam.

I was like. d00d. Tell the police. The cops don't do nothing and they come and get you. I'll take care of them with this nice MLB bat I got here signed by Derek Jeter. rofl

But anyways.

It's a scam. Don't fall for it.

If it wasn't real then you're royally fucked. If he was able to get your email address then he probably knows you visit GLP. Then you go and POST his "don't tell anyone" email. hahaha


Seriously though, you should respond and say "YES!" and call the cops.

A wonderful site:

www.419eater.com

This site will crack you up. They take emails like the one you received and bait the scammer to do the most outrageous things.

So, OP, what did the subject line in the first email say to make you open it? Did they have your name?

Just curious. I keep getting emails that just say "Re:" in the subject line. But I don't open anything that is not from someone I know so I just send them all to spam folder.
