Look At This E-mail I Just Received!

"SOMEONE YOU CALL YOUR FRIEND, WANTS YOU DEAD.I felt very sorry and bad for you, that your life is going to end like this if you don't comply, i was paid to eliminate you and I have to do it within 10 days.Someone you call your friend wants you dead by all means, and the person have spent a lot of money on this, the person also came to us and told us that he wants you dead and he provided us your names, photograph and other necessary information we needed about you. Meanwhile, I have sent my boys to track you down and they have carried out the necessary investigation needed for the operation, but I ordered them to stop for a while and not to strike immediately because I just felt something good and sympathetic about you. I decided to contact you first and know why somebody will want you dead by all means. Right now my men are monitoring you, their eyes are on you, and even the place you think is safer for you to hide might not be.Now do you want to LIVE OR DIE? It is up to you. Get back to me now if you are ready to enter deal with me, I mean life trade, who knows, and I might just spear your life, $8,000 is all you need to spend. You will first of all pay $3,000 then I will send the tape of the person that want you dead to you and when the tape gets to you, you will pay the remaining $5,000. If you are not ready for my help, then I will have no choice but to carry on the assignment after all I have already being paid before now.Warning: do not think of contacting the police or even tell anyone because I will extend it to any member of your family since you are aware that somebody want you dead, and the person knows some members of your family as well.For your own good I will advise you not to go out once is 7pm until I make out time to see you and give you the tape of my discussion with the person who want you dead then you can use it to take any legal action. Good luck as I await your reply to this e-mail contact: (johnitailna@gmail.com)Mr.John Itailna."

I did not bother to format this. I am going to notify Yahoo though.

Wow,
I never knew anyone important enoughto have a contract out on them (LOL) before.
I suppose it's easier than the money laundering scam tho', you don't have to travel to Africa to get rid of your money.
Does this person even think they broke federal law passing on Death threats on-line - StOOOPId!

Not sure why people think anyone would fall for this scam, but it is not a pleasant email at all. By the way, you can contact the FBI as well, since I believe extortion on the internet is a federal crime.

Ok, just in case you were wondering, it WAS NOT ME who hired the hit man. Really. NOT ME. No way, man. I would like to point out that he is a very cheap hit man if he is willing to ruin his street cred for a lousy 8K.
