I received a spam email threatening to kill me and my family if I do not send them $800 READ THIS SHIZZ
Here is the body of the threatening email I received:

From:
"Amir Hedayat" <[email protected]>

Hello,

This is a message from the Ishmael Ghost Islamic Group. We are confirmed Islamic Hired killers and Suicide aids. We have been sent to assassinate you and members of your family. I am sorry if the following message will not be detailed because we would not want you to be able to track us as we have been following your every move for sometime now.

Sometime ago, you offended a member of our gang. As you quite know, I shall not be detailing my statement. This member had ordered for your assassination after he made sure he acquired every information about you and your family. It was when he produced your complete details that another member of our gang found out he knew someone in your extended family. As a result, he pleaded for you and said you should be pardoned under any condition. After reaching an agreement, we decided that you provide the total sum of 800 USD to transport some of our expatriates out of the USA. The money shall finalize the migration of these Islamic expatriates out of the USA. If you do not follow these requirements, I am sorry you shall not live to see the next three weeks, even if you see the next three weeks, a member of your family shall pay for it and another shall pay for every other week you stay alive until you are dead. To provide this money, kindly send the money via western union or money gram to a receiver in the UK. Once this receiver has confirmed the receipt of the money he shall securely send it back to us for the needed reason. Below is the information of the receiver.

Receiver: Steven Gibbs
Location: London, UK.

Send complete transfer information once transfer has been made to this email [email protected] DO NOT PLAY PRANKS, THIS IS NOT A JOKE

You have been given 72hrs to send this money or else you shall pay with your life. Note: we have all your movement and the movement of members of your family monitored. Do not let them pay for your greed. Because before you are killed, you shall loose a member of your family alongside. I do not have to inform you that this message should be kept secret from everyone especially the police and other authorities, because if anything happens to any member of our gang, be it within or outside the USA, your family story shall be a disaster. You should know this Islamic Group is wide and members cannot be completely wiped out. Note: We are sending this message with a hacked European and African IP address so that you cannot trace location of this message. I will not explain further, a word should be enough for the wise.

Have a nice life
Group Treasury Officer.

Any ideas as to how I should report this threatening email? We don't need a wave of this type of spam catching on.

Threats of bodily harm are unlawful.

So is extortion and blackmail.

Send a copy to your ISP immediately.

I would also phone the authorities and see what they have to say.

The FBI or Homeland Security. Although it is BS, whoever sent it could be in deep sh*t. It would be considered a threat.

Maybe you could send them a check and see who cashes it.
Maybe your bank and police will work with you.

I'm sure this is a mass-emailed random email of BS, and they are probably in NIGERIA. However, I'd like to report this to keep this type of "spam" from becoming popular with the con artists.

I would contact the FBI or CIA on this matter immidiately.
Obviously, its a scam but still, threatening people with death unless they pay you money is against some law (im sure), lol. Someone said that if they leave a contact person for payment, then they are deffinately tracable and this is true!

lol, you should sign them up for every spam email under the sun so they get 100's of emails a day about stupid stuff.

A. definitely Nigerians since they always say they are from London or Britain or UK

B. Qualifies as cyberterrorism if we did that over here however no one's going to be concerned over a email that's obviously a fake [and easily able to be told to be fake.]

c. I haven't studied that type before as that before and ty for sharing.

I trust you are not being followed by Hamas or actual Moslem's...

This "not so new" angle sure seems more effective within Nigerians minds since they just can't get any. Might be a sign they are wigging out and not able to get a bunch tricked anymore.

Don't send money if they say they have relative. Not if phrased so ignorant or haven't sent newspaper cutouts. chuckle

Right click on the email, where it says From, Subject, Recieved, etc. Look down at the pop up box where it says Properties, click on that. Another little box will appear and you can click on details at the top, then Message Source at the bottom. You will see a lot of stuff most of us do not understand but you will see who all has recieved that email (multiple mailings) and see who sent it to you. The FBI will need to be forwarded this email in it original form. Do not copy and paste to them. Forward the entire email. IF, and I say IF, this is real and you are not lying to us, you should inform your local police department. This is a serious crime. I've recieved many of the Nigerian junk letters but never even heard of one like yours.
