If You Get This Message, Don’t Worry


Sean Gabb

I normally delete these things unread. This one almost alarmed me. However, I checked on Google, and it is a standard spam. I can’t be bothered with reporting it to the pigs, as it would only be a further waste of time. I’m interested to know, however, who else has got one.

    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 $10,000. 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 $5,000 first,which will serve as guarantee that you are ready to you 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 $5,000 once you receive the tape.

    Warning; do not contact the police, make sure you stay indoors once it is 7.30pm 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.

    Regard
    Don Gunshot.

  4. So “Don Gunshot” has been given the task of “terminating” you, but is prepared to tip you off in return for $10,000. My understanding is that it is an offence not to report death threats. It’s almost certain that this is a scam, “killer takes pity on you” variety. There are fruitcakes around who send this sort of thing by the thousand, and a few suckers may pay up.

    Good luck!

    I just got an email from ‘Paypal’ directing me to a website to ‘update’ my bank account details for them.

    A completely false website, very convincingly done. It’s remarkable the effort these fraudsters can go to, but seriously, who is going to fall for a ‘hitman’ email? That is quite something.

    Pathetic stuff, a hitman selling out his employer for moral reasons? Cor luv a duck, what next?

  7. The price has now dropped to $5000….
