Latest Email Scam: Promises Not To Kill You If You Pay

Spammer and fraudster are persistent and creative. The latest email scam involves a threat where the criminal will not kill you if you pay instead. Honest. I am not making this up.

Michael Finney described the scam in his blog. So, if you see an email message in your inbox with the following subject line:

"Somebody you call a friend, wants you dead"

You can assume that it's probably a scam. The scammers are trying to trick you into wiring money to them.
